Of the Lord. November 2
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; 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 enquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4
Who or what are we looking to for our help today? In our psalm today the writer knew where to go with his desire and it was to the lord. This is the right target for our desires also. I once read “He is the well into which to dip our buckets, He is the door to knock at, and the bank to draw from. Put your desires on the World and people therein and you may lie upon the dung heap with the beggar Lazarus : but put your desires upon God and be carried of Angels into Abrahams bosom”. If by faith and prayer this morning you dip your bucket into the well of God you won’t come up empty. If you knock at his door, He will answer, If you draw from the reserve of God there will be Plenty. So today make sure it is of the Lord your looking to for help and surely he will answer. Lets make sure to give him thanks and praise for it today.
