📖Psalm 84:1-2 (ESV)
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
The Book of Psalms could just as easily be called the Book of Hymns, containing some of the most beautiful songs of praise to our Lord. In this psalm, the choirmaster makes a definitive statement: "How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!" Heaven is a wonderful aspect to contemplate. We read about the realities of what it will be like when our time concludes in this life as Christians—streets of gold, no more pain or suffering, no more tears, new glorified bodies, and no more sin. Can you imagine? As amazing as all that will be, the best aspect of heaven, by far, will be our enjoyment of being in the physical presence of God for eternity. He is what makes heaven so glorious; it wouldn't be heaven without Him. He is the One who makes our hearts and flesh cry out in songs of joy. The day we see Him face to face in His dwelling place, my mind is too small to fathom the joy we will experience. Colossians 3:2 tells us to "set our minds on the things above." Day by day, we grow closer to the time when we will be with the Living God in heaven. Until then, let's strive to set our minds and affections on heavenly things, not earthly things. Have a blessed week. Know that you have been prayed for this day. Keep striving toward the goal in Christ Jesus our Lord. God bless.
🙏I'm praying for you always. ❤️
