Seek Him in His Temple

One thing I ask from the Lord,
 this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
 all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord...
 and to seek him in his temple. 

  Psalm 27:4 
 First we gotta ask ourselves, Is this only what we seek?
Is it our hearts desire to draw closer to Him? I love Proverbs 3:5-6 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight. 

 When He is our hearts desire and first in our lives then we dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of our lives. This isn't a promise just for after we leave this life here, its for the here and now. We can and should be living in the house of the Lord all of our days, gazing on the beauty of the Lord, this life He has given and the beauty of His creation around us. Looking at life through new glasses, ones that are able to see through all of the crap around us, and embrace what really matters. This world is falling apart all around us, but that doesn't mean we have to! Seek Him in His temple. Do you know that when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savoiur, when you repent and ask Him in, that He comes and lives in your heart. He is in you and that's were you seek Him in His temple, your heart. Paul said "don't you know that your bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit which lives in you". Look life isn't easy and nobody said it would be, but we have a "burden bearer" who wants to carry those things for us. Especially when it gets really tough and hard to walk through, He is there. Seek Him with all your heart and look to His beauty. Spend time with Him, its all about the relationship!. Stay Blessed, PJ
