Day 14 | February Devotional from Psalms - "The Best Place to Live"

Thursday, February 14, 2019 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Psalms 84:10 (NIV), A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. 11 For the LORD God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the LORD withhold from those who do what is right. 12 O LORD Almighty, happy are those who trust in you.

Our Father's House is the best place to live! Quality of life is not measured by how much stuff one has, but by our relationship with the Lord. We certainly do not want to envy those who have a lot, but do not serve the Lord. Everything you need is already present in the house of God. 

Any position in his house, including tending the door, qualifies you to have access to everything in God's house. As the text says, "No good thing will he withhold from those who do what is right." 

So, if you were only a doorkeeper in the house of God, then open the door to the best of your ability! “Grace and glory” surround you!

Reflection Question: What blessings have you received by being a part of God's house?
