One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. Psalm 27:4
Sarah Young in her devotional Jesus Calling writes it like this:
“Meet Me in the early morning splendor. I eagerly await you here. In the stillness of this holy time with Me, I renew your strength and saturate you with Peace.”
I keep this where I will see it first thing every morning. It is a wonderful way to start my day, immediately reminding me that while I’ve been sleeping my Father in heaven has been waiting for me to awaken and wants me to start my day with Him. What an incredible God we have. Just knowing and being reminded that no matter what we face today, God is waiting to walk with us into whatever lies ahead. Because of this and because of what Jesus has done for us on the cross, I, like David, seek to dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Thank you, Father, and I praise you for being the loving, merciful God of ALL creation that you are. Amen.
