Meditations in the Psalms
David makes it clear how blessed he was to be in the presence of the Lord – in His house! Worship characterized David’s life, and the Psalms give constant testimony to this great desire of His. How is it with us? Is this what we desire? Jesus said that those who worship the Father (John 4:23-24) must worship Him “in spirit and in truth.” What goes on inside of us is extremely important in terms of describing true worship.
- His delight in worship – verse 8
- The danger of bad associations – verses 9-10
- His dedication was clear – verse 11
- His desire to bless the Lord – verse 12
It is important to recognize the danger of our relationships in life. If we associate with the non-believers in order to have true friendship and fellowship, we will be greatly disappointed, and seriously affected in our walk with the Lord.
