“One thing I have asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.” [Psalm 27:4]
A defining moment meets a divided heart.
David's one pursuit:
- “to live with God in His house my whole life long”
Pursuing one thing:
- True pursuit of any thing involves desire and action
Why pursue a life with God?
- “to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord” (to know God’s character)
- “and to inquire in God’s temple.” (to know God’s wisdom)
Our focus is on one thing:
- It is either God or self.
Focus: Our choice is God, and we can go in His direction for our lives, or our choice is self, and we can follow a path that is cluttered by many distractions.
