I saw a post on facebook the other day. It was a quote that went something like this: “Do you ever just crave someone’s presence? Like you would literally be happy just sitting next to them. It could be completely silent and it would just be magical to be there with them.” This quote was taking about a boyfriend/girlfriend or crush, but it got me thinking. Have you ever felt this way about God? That you crave just His presence? When was the last time you sat alone desiring to meet with God and to be in His presence?
I know the Psalmist did in chapter 84. There is a popular worship song on this chapter that I’m sure we have all sang. Do we truly believe that one day in the presence of God is better than 1000 anywhere else with anyone else? Would we rather be the lowest servant in God’s house than rich and powerful away from God?
Read Psalm 84. Listen to “Better is One Day” by Kutless, then “Yearn” by Shane & Shane. Crave His presence. It’s the best place you can ever be.
