This psalm has inspired several contemporary Christian songs. It was written around 535 B.C, during the time that the foundation of the second temple was laid. As I read this psalm, I heard these words as foundational to our faith today.
- We will find our strength in the Lord
- Our trust in the Lord will bring us Joy
- One day living in the Lord’s courts is worth a thousand years elsewhere
When we love the Lord, we long to live with Him. He is with us every day, but it is easy to forget that and battle on within our own strength. But when we call to Him for help, He will be faithful to help us.
For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:11
I am grateful today that the Lord calls us home. He lives within us today and welcomes us to spend eternity in His courts.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 85
