Edifier du Jour-Psalm 27:4-6
4 One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: 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 meditate in His temple. 5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. 6 And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
We were reading this just before we had a breakthrough with Eileen's depression last night. I was feeling under severe spiritual attack, with my mind envoking Popeye-"that's alls I can stands, I can stands no more." This psalm reminded me that God is still a hiding place no matter how bad things get. It's worth looking at verse four. The one thing David's after is to dwell in the house of the Lord. He's not asking for wealth or power or glory or health; those things are secondary to being with God and the peace and joy that flows from it.
