Psalm 84:10 – With God

Today’s Readings: Josh 11:1‐12:24, Luke 17:11‐37, Ps 84:1‐12, Prov 13:5‐6

Psalm 84:10 – “For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.  I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.”

Observations:

  • A day with God is better than a thousand away from God.
  • David would rather live as a servant of God than a peer with wicked people.

I love to singing the song “Better is One Day” based on Psalm 84.  It is easy to sing these words.  But, I often live as though I would rather be a peer of the wicked than a servant of God.  It is exciting to think that the temple is now in our hearts.  What David desired, we can have every day.  We can walk as a servant of God even when we are in the tents of the wicked.

Apply: Today I want to make a point to go through the day “in the courts” of God.

What enables you to have a “Better is One Day” with God perspective?
