Here’s the one thing I crave from God,
the one thing I seek above all else:
I want the privilege of living with him every moment in his house, [in his presence]
finding the sweet loveliness of his face,
filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace.
I want to live my life so close to him
that he takes pleasure in my every prayer.
I really enjoy the season of baking and cooking that precedes our Christmas celebrations. The Haleys find joy in delicious food, some sweet and special baked goods, and family time. But, if we cannot enjoy any of these meaningful things, will we still celebrate the joy of Christmas? Absolutely!
David teaches us all about priorities and cravings, today. One thing he asks and seeks from God; it is the most important craving he has in this world. He wants to be near God, because he knows God loves him with a perfect love and will take care of him while he is the world. David realizes God is the Source of true Joy! May we be filled with such cravings!
Prayer: Lord, I crave your presence above all things. Please fill me with the joy of my salvation. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
