Psalm 27 New King James Version (NKJV)
- The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
- One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I 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 inquire in His temple.
- For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
- I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
The reason we depart from His house is because we fail to see His goodness and His eternal Love and focus on temporal circumstances. We keep complaining and think that there must be something better outside. The prodigal son thought that there are good things on the outside and completely fail to see His father’s goodness. The spirit of complaining, anger and frustration will put us out in due time unless we come to our senses and start to appreciate what we have in His house.
