Today is a reflection day.
Psalm 84 is one of my favorites. This verse delights and encourages –
For a day in your courts is betterthan a thousand elsewhere.I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my Godthan dwell in the tents of wickedness. (Psalm 84:10)
Indeed, just a moment on the presence of God is better than years apart from Him. What a blessing to know that we, as Christians, have Him all the time. He lives in us by His Spirit, and He has promised to be with us forever (Matthew 28:20). Even if we have the role of the most humble spirit (like a doorkeeper), to be near God is all we need, and all we should want.
So – some challenges: Given that we have access to His courts, do we enter in? How is our prayer life? Given that we have His presence, do we practice His presence? Right now, are you living as if you really know that He is with you?
in Him, Mike
