Psalm 27:4, “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.”
David’s top priority in life was his relationship with the Lord. Although he was in the wilderness seeking refuge from his enemies, David’s heart was in the tabernacle seeking the beauty of God. He longed to return to the Tabernacle and spend the rest of his life in worship. Sometimes trouble drives us closer to the Lord and makes us more desirous of worshiping Him in the fellowship of other believers.
Is it a priority to you to worship the Lord? Do you prioritize time in His house, on His day with His people? God calls us to this. God calls us to be sanctified – set apart – different. This is the kind of person God uses to build His kingdom, and this is how we move forward together.
