Loving Expressions

Psalm 84:1-12

I love the way the psalmist expresses his love and joy for the Lord in Psalm 84. His tone and attitude totally struck a chord with me. My absolute favorite verse was verse 2. "My soul longs, yes faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God." And when I reached the end of the chapter, I seriously felt like standing up and shouting "Yes!" even though I was all by myself, sitting at my computer.

How would you describe the heart and attitude of the psalmist? So how did Psalm 84 impact you? Did it give you a shot in the arm like it did me? Tami W.

P.S. I invite you to listen to Back to the Bible and the series Becoming Intimate with God this week. It's packed full of good, practical teaching from Dr. Kroll, and I can't think of a better focus as we head into the New Year. Also, to all our Canadian P4ers, Happy Boxing Day! Hope you have a fun day off!

I was thinking what better place to regain proper prospective of life than in God's house, with His people, with His Word being proclaimed. The birds know where to build a safe home in God's house, why do we nor know where to establish a safe haven? We have a God that is so great and caring why do we fret, worry, complain, and get out of sorts?

LeRoy, you are right! Why DO we fret, worry, complain, and get out of sorts???

I just listened to Dr. Kroll's address on the radio, and thought it was wonderful! I would love to become intimate with God, and I am looking forward to the series of talks this week from Dr. Kroll. As I read the Bible selection for today, it's clear that the Psalmist is joyful and knows God intimately and loves Him more than anything or anyone else. I, too, want that kind of relationship with God that the writer has, and will be listening this week for how to attain it. I, too, want to have that kind of relationship with God!

This psalm spoke of the great & enduring love of the believer with the house of the Lord which would be the Tabernacle at Gibeon and the Temple at Zion. Praise God! We believers in the new covenant understand that the Church has become the dwelling or temple of God collectively and singularly with each believer being indwelt by the Spirit. I love the wording in the psalm of the love for meeting with God. I find the true worth of being in attendance at public worship services is meeting with God Himself.
