Psalm 84

Chapter Summary

Singing of God’s House

This beautiful song extolls the beauty of God’s earthly temple at Jerusalem, but can also be applied to the beauty of dwelling with God in our hearts. Do you have the security of a bird in her nest because your heart is safe in God? Even in the Valley of Weeping, can you drink from the spring of life that is the Spirit within you?

Day 210

Holy Spirit, live in me. Make a spring of water to eternal life, as Jesus promised. Let me live in Your courts now and in Your heavenly courts forever.
