In psalm 84 David expresses his heart for the presence of God. He says:
“Better a day in your courts than a thousand anywhere else. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than live in the tents of wicked people.”
Do we yearn for God like this? Are we wanting to be close to where God is?
David is happy to have even one day on the presence of God than none ever. He would rather live at the threshold, the doorway, the edges, of Gods presence than to live anywhere else.
Notice also that David isn’t saying he wants God to be where he is – he wants to be where God is. There’s a world of difference in these two desires.
Where is our longing for Gods presence today?
Where is our desire to be where God dwells?
Will we seek the presence of God in our lives today?
