Gaze Upon the Beauty of the Lord – Psalm 27:4

Psalm 27:4 “One thing have I asked 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 gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.”

Romans 1:20

What is God saying to me? Like King David, my goal should be “to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord.” I am reminded of Philippians 3:10-11 the Amplified Version “[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].

How will I obey? I will “seek” “to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord.” Today, I’m going to pray on the hour every hour for God to show me His glory.

Who will I tell? My neighbor

What were you doing the last time you were able “to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord?”
