Reading: Psalm 27:1-14
Key Verse: Psalm 27:4 4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (NIVUK)
With the recent events of the terror attacks in Paris and storms in the UK people naturally ask “What’s wrong with the world? Has it gone mad?” The truth is that ever since Adam & Eve sinned the world has been corrupt. It is just more evident sometimes than other times.
Everything in life can change and be taken away from us. The only thing that cannot be taken away from us is that which is given to us by God. His gift of eternal life and His love for us. David in this Psalm proclaims his security in God. Though many ill events and wicked men come against him to over power and overwhelm David, yet with God he can have peace and confidence. David can have this peace and confidence because he knows God and is known by God. David’s desire is know God more and more intimately.
It is a profound thing that God Almighty, creator of the universe, wants to know us mere humans personally, we should use this privilege by seeking to know Him better through studying the Bible and prayer.
A: The Lord is mine
B: The Lord is my one thing
