In Need of Something BEAUTIFUL?

Do you have enemies? Are you fearful? Do you have any problems? If so, David the psalmist is one from whom we can learn what to do in those times. What specifically did David do?

David kept his eye on the ball. That is, he kept his eye on God. He knew God to be the beauty in the “ashes” and chose to dwell on Him as expressed in Psalm 27:4. “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: 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 meditate in His temple.”

What preceded David’s “ask” to dwell in the house of the Lord and behold the Lord’s beauty? His references to dread, evil doers, adversaries, enemies, and war.

Like David, we can choose to gaze and meditate on God’s beauty and His eternal temple in the midst of whatever agony, defeat, discouragement, and doubt we are experiencing.

What are you facing today? What do you perhaps dread? Why not take a moment like David did and shift your focus to the Lord and His beauty?

BEAUTIFUL LORD, we praise You. Thank You for being the beauty in our day and and eternally; the One on whom we can gaze.
