King David’s One Thing

“King David Said it this way:

‘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 inquire in His temple. (Ps. 27.4)’

David’s desire was to look upon His Lord, to contemplate His beauty, to dwell in the house of the Lord. ‘As for me, I will behold they face. (Ps. 17:15; 2 Sam. 7:18; Ps. 65:4)’ To David the place of God’s manifest Presence was in the ‘perfection of beauty’, the ‘joy of the whole earth’. He delighted in His Lord. He took pleasure in His Lord. He adored the Pre-incarnate Son of God. He wanted simply to be with Him, to look upon Him, to know Him, to love Him, to worship Him, to enjoy Him. That was David’s end, the highest purpose of his life. This is the heart fully turned towards the Lord, of which God Himself testifies that it is ‘perfect’ before Him. (1 Kings 15:3; 1 Sam. 13:14; Acts 13:22)” To Enjoy Him Forever by Malcolm Webber, pages 56, 57, Healthy Leaders, Leader Source
