An Encouraging Word

 

 

 
 

Slow Down!


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 inquire in his temple. Psalms 27:1

 

We live in a world that is so fast paced and we have so many things pulling at us, I wonder if we know if we are coming or going.  This fast pace causes us to feel as if we see no other option but to run to just keep up.

 
In Psalms 27 David is running because of fear from being chased by King Saul.  I would even imagine that he is wondering what will happen in his future.  Even though he is feeling like this he declares he is confident (vs 3), courageous (vs 14), and unafraid (vs1).  David had an eternal perspective.


David's secret to his confidence was his private obedience.  Obedience to the Lord was his underlying bridge to allow him to cross from his circumstances to his victory.  David consistently stayed in God's presence and sought Him.

 
David declares, "one thing have I desired and that will I seek after... that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever."  It is said that when a person was invited into a person's tent as a guest he not only received food and rest, but he also received protection.  God is inviting us to seek:

 

- His light (vs. 1)

- His strength (vs. 1)

- His protection (vs. 1)

- His presence (vs. 4)

 

No matter where you find yourself today: running, walking, or standing, He's waiting on you to slow down and seek Him.

  
"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:"  Isaiah 55:6
