We are living scares everywhere; diseases, war, rumors of war, natural disasters, and seeing evil multiply every day that passes, is something that torments us and sometimes even makes us faint, but it should not be so, we must remain confident in God and sing of His name, because we are more than privileged to be in His home.
Psalm 84 is a song that tells us about that bliss that is to be in the dwellings of God:
1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
In the midst of all this storm God is our refuge, our strong rock, and it must be a yearning for each of us to be in the house of God. Is there a better place than His dwellings? This psalm says that those who live in the house of God are blessed.
Another thing is that this Psalm makes us understand that we are not to praise God temporarily, but that we will perpetually glorify His Holy Name.
Dear brother and friend, let us put our strength in God in the midst of all these occurrences today, and in this way we will be called blessed.
