Psalms 27:4 – One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek: 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.
I want this. I want to have the the one desire for God’s presence. I want to live in the sanctuary, where God is and what He uses to communicate and purify His people. I want to be there in that connection all the time. Not some of the time or most of the time, but ALL of the time. I want to see God; to know Him, to understand how He acts and thinks. I want to have the image of His beauty burned onto my mind. I want to ask questions in His presence, and to receive answers.
I had a couple months this last year where those desires were strong. I want that all the time this year. There’s really no time to waste. I want to hold on for my blessing; to know deeper and fuller.
Jeremiah 9:24: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
