Longing for His Presence

Scripture
How lovely are Your dwelling places,
O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 84:1-2 NASB

Observation
The place where God dwells has to be a pretty awesome place. It is a place that you can’t ever forget and one you won’t want to leave.

Once there, you get overwhelmed and sing for joy. What else can you do in the Presence of God?

But who has gone there? Who has truly been in His holy presence? I can’t imagine anyone who has been, to then take so lightly the things of God again. The heart and the spirit of that person would continually long for, seek out and do whatever is necessary to get there and stay there!

Application
It bothers me that so many Christians haven’t truly experienced the Presence of God. They have experienced entertainment, maybe emotions, but not the true Presence. If they did, it would change them!

I always long for the Presence of God. I desire it more than anything. I hope that I can help others understand and know the Presence of God in a real way.

Prayer
Lord, I can’t wait for the day when I’m with You face to face for all eternity. Until then, I thank You for Your Presence and the ability and knowledge to know You, even now. I pray for those who haven’t truly experienced and know Your Presence. I pray that they will and because of it, draw closer to You.

Peace
Todd
