TOPIC: A Place for the Lord

BIBLE VERSE: “Remember … in all [David’s] affliction; how he swore to the LORD … ‘I certainly will not enter my house, nor lie on my bed; I will not give sleep to my eyes … until I find a place for the LORD.'” – Psalm 132:1-5 NASB

April 22, 2022 Bible Verse | Devotional Message

David knew he needed to find “a place” for the Lord. He was thinking about a physical location, a “dwelling place” (v. 5). He wanted a devoted area where he could worship God without interruptions.

But the principle he described has broad implications. This can be a place in our hearts and minds. It can be a part of our daily schedule when we can concentrate on God, call on His name, read His Word, and listen for His voice apart from the distractions of the world.

The psalmist indicated that finding this place was a matter of urgency. He vowed not to rest until he found it. He was demonstrating that his relationship with God was his highest priority. Nothing else was more important.

The Bible tells us that God looks for this kind of dedication. We may think we are pleasing to Him and that we are spiritually mature. But we need to give Him a place of preeminence. As we place Him first in our lives, we can expect Him to pour out more of His blessings.

Today, think about your schedule and priorities. What kind of place does God have in your life? Have you allowed other activities to become dominant? Do you spend quality time praying and studying the Word? Make sure that you “find a place for the Lord.” Make this a priority!

PRAYER
Father, You are the most important part of my life. I love You. Help me walk in Your ways and please You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
