The Blessedness of Dwelling in the House of God1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear , O God of Jacob. Selah.
9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
Just a Thought...
This selection reminds us of our mortality and gives us an estimation of how long we might expect to live if our health doesn't fail. This Psalm tells us that 70 or 80 years is the normal life expectancy for us all. I am now 57 which means that I may be blessed with another 13 or perhaps 23 years. That doesn't seem like a really short amount of time as represented in terms of years. What if we look at that amount of time a little differently? How about looking at it in terms of numbers of weekends left instead of numbers of years left. This way of counting is closer to us learning to "number our days". Using a rounded off number of 50 weekends per year just to make the math more simple, that would translate to 650 weekends or perhaps 1150 weekends. Though the numbers of weekends are larger, the perception of weekends instead of years seems to be more finely defined, at least to me. To think I have only 650 weekends left as oppposed to 13 years hits me a little harder. How about you? How many weekends do you have left according to this estimation given in God's Word?
How will we spend this time we still have left? Let us follow the advice David prays for at the end of this selection of scripture and let us also ask God to "...teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.", in order that we may make the best use of the time we have left. You may ask, What is a "heart of wisdom?". In yet another Psalm, David defines it thus: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever." (Psalm 111:10 KJV) Let us take advantage of the time we have left to gain wisdom of our Loving God, and to praise His Name forever.
