Tonight I went to a viewing and visitation for a dear friend who went home to be with the Lord last Sunday. So as I read this Psalm I was so encouraged and so blessed by it. Especially verse 4:
The one thing I ask of the Lord— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple.My friend Ray, is doing that in a very real way.
I also love the way the Psalmist, believed David, ends this Psalm:
Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.Be encouraged if you are waiting for God to answer a prayer. Be brave, be courageous, and wait.
