HAVING A HEART

FOR GOD’S HOUSE

PSA.27:4

“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.”

THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, THE MOST WONDERFUL PLACE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

THE HOUSE OF GOD IS WHERE I FIRST CAME TO KNOW THE LORD; IT WAS A PLACE TO WHICH I COULD FIND HAPPINESS. THIS IS A PLACE WHERE WE FIND PEACE AND COMFORT.

THE HOUSE OF GOD IS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE AND WE SHOULD HAVE A DEEP LOVE FOR THE HOUSE OF GOD.

THERE IS SOMETHING GREAT ABOUT “ONE THING”… AND THAT IS PEOPLE.

THEY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT AND MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE DETERMINED TO GET IT.

WHAT IS IT THAT DAVID DESIRES…

“TO DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD”

1.IN THE COURTS OF GOD’S HOUSE.

2. LODGE WHERE THE PREISTS LODGE.

3. DWELL IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, AND WHERE ELSE WOULD WE WANT TO BE.

DO WE HOPE THAT PRAISING GOD WILL BE THE BLESSEDNESS OF OUR ETERNITY? SURELY THEN WE OUGHT TO MAKE IT THE BUSINESS OF OUR TIME.

** THIS IS THE ONE THING THAT I HAVE DESIRED OF THE LORD…AND THAT WILL I SEEK AFTER.

TO DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF GOD…

TO BEHOLD THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD…

AND TO ENQUIRE IN HIS TEMPLE…

YOU SEE, IN THE HOUSE OF THE GOD YOU ARE SAFE FROM THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD FOR WE SHALL NEVER ALLOW ANYTHING OF THE WORLD IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.

THE REAL SAFETY OF BELEIVERS HOWEVER IS NOT IN THE WALLS OF THE TEMPLE, BUT IN THE GOD OF THE TEMPLE AND THEIR COMFORT AND COMMUION WITH HIM.

IF YOU COULD ASK FOR ONLY ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

WOULD YOU HAVE THE HEART OF DAVID, OR WOULD YOU BE CONCERN WITH THINGS OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE OF GOD?

MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, DAVID WANTED TO KNOW GOD, TO SEE GOD AS HE REALLY IS AND TO BE WITH HIM.

UNFORTUNATELY, WE GET SO DISTRACTED WITH THE BUSY DATAILS OF OUR LIVES THAT WE NEGLECT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING…SPENDING TIME WITH GOD.

HOW FOOLISH WE ARE TO SPEND OUR LIVES SEEKING THOSE THINGS THAT CANNOT SATISFY WHILE WE IGNORE GOD, THE “ONE THING” WHO CAN BRING US GREAT JOY, PEACE, SATISFACTION, AND CONTENTMENT.

THE WORLD IS FULL OF EMPTY PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO SATISFY THE VOID IN THEIR LIVES WITH FANCY CARS, JOB PROMOTIONS, A NEW PARTNER, A FANCY VACATION, OR SOME OTHER THING THAT BRINGS NO HAPPINESS OR JOY.

EVERY ONE OF US HAS A PLACE IN OUR INNERMOST THAT ONLY GOD CAN FILL, AND NO MATTER WHAT WE TRY TO FILL IT WITH ONLY GOD CAN SATISFY AND FILL THAT EMPTY SPOT.

NOTICE THIS!

PSA.122:1

“I WAS GLAD WHEN THEY SAID UNTO ME, LET US GO INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.”

LET US ALL BE MINDFULL OF THE HOUSE OF GOD.

IF GOD IS ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO SEEK, BUT NOT AT THE TOP, I ENCOURAGE YOU TO MOVE EVERYTHING AROUND AND PUT HIM FIRST.

IF YOU WILL PUT HIM FIRST IN EVERYTHING YOU DO, YOU WILL BE BLESSED.

INVESTING YOUR LIFE IN GOD IS THE VERY BEST THING YOU CAN DO. FOR GOD WILL NEVER FAIL.
