Give Thanks in Your Brokenness Because You Can Go into God’s House!
– Day 12
Psalm 73:17 till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.
“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
David wrote in Psalm 122:1, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.” We don’t know when he wrote this particular psalm but there were times he was on the run, sometimes trying to escape Saul and his wrath against David. He even lived among the Philistines for a while! Only he knows the reason why, but there is one unmistakable fact: there were times he could not visit the “house of the LORD”, or the Tabernacle, in his day. His circumstances did not allow him to go to the house of the Lord at times.
Like David, you may have different circumstances going on in your life. Family issues, health issues, job issues, and many more things can consume your life. But thank God we can go into the house of the Lord freely and corporately worship with other brothers and sisters who may be going through similar situations. No matter what you have experienced, you can be sure that you can get what you need in the House of God!
1. Think a time where you got what you needed when you went to God’s house. What did God do for you?
2. Have life’s circumstances ever kept you away from God’s house? How did you feel during that time?
