Psalms 84:1-2 (83:1-3 LXX)

How beloved are Your dwellings, O Lord of hosts.
My soul longs and faints for the courts of the Lord;
My heart and my flesh greatly rejoice in the living God.

Encouraging Words

No matter how blessed we are in this present life. No matter how much wealth we may have accumulated. No matter how spectacular our home or other earthly possessions may be. None of this compares to the majesty and beauty of that which is God's. For those who have given their lives, their minds, their hearts, and their all to our Lord, that which is God's becomes ever present in their thoughts, their hopes, and their desires. Our souls begin to long and faint for that day when we will enter into the courts of our Lord to spend the remainder of our eternity with Him. Eventually, that longing that starts with our soul begins to permeate our heart and flesh until that point when our entire being desires to be in the presence of our Lord. It is at this point that we can taste and see our Lord God in every created thing touched by His magnificent hand and filled with His love, grace, and mercy. Glory be to God!
