I often wondered as to what David meant when he cried out in Psalm 27 that he wanted to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of his life. Surely David was not talking about being in the temple itself. Isn’t it amazing how much revelation the Old Testament saints had and their desire to walk in it. What I think we all need to truly learn from this passage is that our prayer lives should be serious enough to capture our minds. Even while we are praying, we allow our minds to wander to all sorts of things down here and find it difficult to imagine that we are actually in the presence of God. We do lip service but are minds are far away from truly beholding His beauty. Even while we are praying to God, we struggle to be literally present before Him. The Psalmist give us a good antidote to weak praying and reminds us that we have to see ourselves in a new place. We have approached God and now we need to see ourselves in the throne room, giving Him all the attention He deserves.
