Psalm 27:4 - Home Forever!
Psalm 27:4 (KJV) One thing have I desired of
the LORD, that will I seek after; 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.
Psalm 27:4 (NIV) One thing I ask from the
LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the
house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze
on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in
Psalm 27:4 (TLB) The one thing I want from
God, the thing I seek most of all, is the
privilege of meditating in his Temple, living in his
presence every day of my life, delighting in his
incomparable perfections and glory.
One of the secrets of growth is something
I call "consistent variety." To get better at
anything, we must be consistent. Successful people do
consistently what normal people do only occasionally.
If you want to get closer to God,
consistently seek him. If you want to get healthy,
consistently eat right. If you want to see your marriage
improve, consistently treat your spouse with respect.
Consistency matters. But so does variety.
For example, if you go to the gym
consistently but only do the same exercises, your muscles
will get used to it and your improvement will
quickly diminish. It's important to work out
regularly, but you also have to change your workouts.
The same is true in your relationships.
You will want to encourage those you love. But
if you just say the same thing again and again,
it won't mean as much. We must find creative
ways to encourage and show our love.
When seeking God, we should pursue him
daily. But don't just pray the same thing. Or even
read the Bible in the same way. Consider praying
in a different place. Read a different version
of the Bible. Worship if you normally don't or
find some new music that draws you to God.
To grow spiritually, make sure you
consistently seek Christ, but mix it up. Today stretch
your spiritual muscles and experience him in a
fresh new way.
Forgive me, God, when I get stuck in a
rut and keep approaching you the same way over
and over again. Surprise me today with new ways
of experiencing you. [Daily Power by Craig
