A Place for the Lord

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The psalmist spoke about finding a “place” for the Lord. He certainly was thinking about a physical location. A “dwelling place.” But the principle he described has broad implications.

This also can be a place in our hearts and emotions. It can be a place in our thoughts and minds. It can be a place that is a central part of our daily schedule and routine. It can be a place within our home and work. A time and place when we call on His name, read His word, and listen for His voice, apart from the distractions of the world.

The psalmist indicated that finding this place was a matter of urgency. He vowed not to rest until he found “a place for the Lord.” He was demonstrating that God was his highest priority. That nothing else was more important.

This is the kind of dedication that God looks for. We may think we are pleasing to Him, and that we are spiritually mature. But giving Him a place of preeminence in our hearts and lives is central to receiving His peace, His protection, His wisdom, and His fullest blessings.

Today, think about your schedule. Your priorities. What kind of place does God have in your life? Have you allowed other activities to become dominate? Do you spend quality time praying, studying the Word, and listening to God? Make sure that you “find a place for the Lord in your life. Make this your highest priority!
