“Longing to Be With the Lord God”
If I were to ask you if you are looking forward to living with the Godhead forever, I suspect many would say yes; someday I want to live with the Lord God.
But the question is, do we long to be with the Lord God?
Please read the following verses.
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.
2 From the ends of the earth, I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
5 For you have heard my vows, O God;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.
Ah, I long to live with the Lord God in heaven. Thinking about this brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart.
Even with my longing heart, comes the realization that I am content to wait on the Lord’s timing.
I am kept very busy doing the things the Lord God has given me to do, now that I am a believer.
One glorious day, heaven awaits.
Until then, with the Spirit’s help I live for Christ.
