“I’m asking GOD for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet.
That’s the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, The perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic.”
Psalm 27:4-5 MSG
King David’s prayer was to live WITH God every day.
To enjoy Him, learn from Him and have a safe place to escape to when the world goes nuts.
He lived in a palace but longed to live in the temple with God.
The one thing David longed for, Jesus made a possibility.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:19, “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?”
Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, you are able to experience this kind of relationship with God every day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
Are you stressed and overwhelmed today?
Escape to the presence of God within you and let the beauty of the Holy Spirit fill your soul with peace that is untouched by the world and all it’s pressures.
