Re:Verse reading—Psalm 27 (day two)
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. vs. 4
David was a king who was well acquainted with conflict. He knew what it was to be chased and hunted. He also knew what it was to taste conquest and victory. His story is filled with great victories on the battlefield. At his heart however, he was still a shepherd who longed for the quiet and solitude that caring for sheep provided him. That time where he could sing his songs of devotion to the Lord.
No matter what may surround you, or how the world buffets against you may your testimony be more concerned with longing to be near the Lord than to be victorious.
