Worship is the Key
Surely or only goodness, and mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord (and His presence) shall be my dwelling place. Psalm 23:6
The Psalmist David devoted his life searching for the presence of God. And he found what he was in search of. Once he found God’s presence he never wanted to leave. He wrote many times of his desire to dwell in the presence of the Lord all the days of his life. He said that being in the presence of God was a dwelling place, a house that you know when you enter into His presence.
David loved to be in the presence of God, in the house where the glory dwells. David was a worshiper and he discovered that as he worshiped God, he would experience His presence. He found the key that unlocks the door to the house of God. The key is worship.
God inhabits praise and worship. Worship builds the house, and God comes down and fills the house. Where there is praise and worship He is present. As a worshiper David built a house for the presence of God. He discovered he could be in God’s presence all the days of his life as he worshiped Him. Worship therefore is the key to dwelling continually in His presence.
Lord I love the habitation of your house the place where your glory dwells. Psalm 26:8
One thing I have asked of the Lord, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord (in his presence) all the days of my life…Psalm 27:4
The Right Path: If you are in search of His presence and desire to dwell in His house then worship and sing praises in your heart to the Lord. Put on a CD in your heart first thing in the morning and sing and worship the Lord all day. You will discover as David did that you can dwell in the house of the Lord (in His presence) all the days of your life.
