“For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness..” Psalm 84:4-6 KJV
The popular worship song makes it easy to remember and sing along “Better is one day in your courts, than a thousand elsewhere,” but do we really mean it? Would we trade one day in church, one day with the Lord, for a thousand elsewhere?
When we think deeply about this Psalm it should move us to prayer and praise and worship! When we think about the goodness of the Lord, when we pray in love to the Lord, we will rise up to our feet and declare, yes, better is one day with you Lord! I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness!
And then we will walk with the Lord in freedom and joy, because He will remind us, just as He says in verse 11: “no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly”!
Lord Jesus, we thank and praise you for your word, for your protection, and for your reminder that You are the victory, that all good things come from you! In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen!
