Just one thing have I asked of Adonai; only this will I seek: to live in the house of Adonai all the days of my life, to see the beauty of Adonai and visit in his temple. For he will conceal me in his shelter on the day of trouble, he will hide me in the folds of his tent, he will set me high on a rock. Then my head will be lifted up above my surrounding foes, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, sing praises to Adonai .
Tehillim (Psa) 27:4-6 CJB
King David wasn’t only desiring to be with the LORD, he was actively working out his salvation. His life reflects a willingness to grow, acknowledge his actions and develop.
One of our goals must be to see the beauty of the Most High. But not only after the Messiah reigns on Earth. It must be on our daily to do list.
In Ephesians 4:30-32 CJB Paul gives some profound words.
- Don’t cause grief to God’s Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), for he has stamped you as his property until the day of final redemption.
- Get rid of all bitterness,
- violent assertiveness and
- along with all spitefulness.
Instead…He doesn’t just tell us what not to do, he continues how we must live…
- be kind to each other,
- and forgive each other,
Then he concludes with what it is to follow the One who laid down His life. Yeshua gave up His right to be right for the sake of the people. “.. just as in the Messiah God has also forgiven you.”
This is an intentional lifestyle. When the king said, ‘Just one thing have I asked of Adonai; only this will I seek: to live in the house of Adonai all the days of my life…’ he understood that it is impossible to seek something and never move towards what he was after.
We can’t truly seek the peace of God and harbour hate, slander, bitterness, and unforgiveness in our hearts!
May you see the beauty of Adonai this Shabbat and everyday for the rest of your life! Shabbat Shalom! Pray much! Love More! Be kind to one another!
