Meditation Verse for today       
 
Scripture.  One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple.  Psalm 27:4  KJV
 
King David wrote this psalm. 
 
God calls David "A man after My Own Heart".
 
By following David's lead we can become, "people after God's Own Heart," and be overcomers in our battles just as David was.
 
In previous verses within this chapter David sings that the Lord is his Light and Salvation, and Strength therefore, of whom should he be afraid?
 
How true for us today! 
 
We stand in the Strength of Almighty God and all who oppose us, oppose Him
 
He cannot be overcome, and in Him we are overcomers!
 
David says he sings praises to the Lord and asks for God's Mercy in all his trials. 
 
He also asks the Lord to teach him of His Ways.
 
Lastly, David says he waits on the Lord. 
 
He does not go out to fight battles unaided by the Lord. 
 
He waits and prays, and praises and learns, gaining strength so that through him, God may be glorified, when the enemy sees what little David did to gain the victory.
 
God desires to do this for us today and has laid down this chapter of beautiful scriptures to teach us.
 
This is the Way to prepare for each day.
 
Meditate on the value of waiting for the Lord to go before you into every battle so you will be victorious and God will be glorified,
 
Prayer

Lord, thank You for the psalms of David which teach us so much about You.  Help me to be faithful in waiting on You while I learn about You.  Amen.
