VotD 3/13/19

This isn’t normally what we think of when given the question, “What would you wish for if you had one wish?” We might think of world peace, of infinite wealth, or even to live forever. But to live in the house of God – that doesn’t come up much. This, however, is something worth asking for because it’s something God offers us. It’s not something you get from a vending machine, but from a relationship with God. The Psalmist asks it in the context of trust in God: that God will protect, that God will accept (“If my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will take me up”), that God will provide shelter in the face of enemies. Trusting in God completely, the Psalmist says this: I will seek after one thing, to live in God’s house my whole life long.
