Psalm 84:10-A Day In The Lord’s House

Psalm 84:10–For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

Doorkeepers= a person attending or guarding a door or gateway. A modern day “USHER IN THE CHURCH.”

Are you excited when Sunday (the day of the Lord) comes? Does your hearts burn within when you think of  the House of God?

Believe it or not, many people do not have a desire in their hearts to enter God’s House on Sunday mornings. They find one excuse after another as to why they should not go. Its too hot or cold, they are too busy, they are tired after working all week, they are too tired because they hang out all night, they do not feel like that church stuff on today,  they do not understand what the preacher is saying,  they do not believe there is a God. The list goes on and on.

David not only knew, but he understood the true value and importance of the dwelling place of the True and Living God.  

The Doorkeeper was responsible for opening the gate of the Temple so people could come into the presence of the Lord. The Doorkeeper was also responsible for the rooms and treasuries of the Temple. 

Afterwards, King David moved the ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem and placed it in the tabernacle he had constructed for it.  At that time, Obededom guarded the temple gate; he became one of David’s doorkeeper of the Ark of the Covenant, a treasurer  and a worshiper in the temple.

 David boldly claims on today that he would rather chose a day in the courts of God and to be a doorkeeper of His house than to spend a thousand days dwelling in the tents of the wicked.   WOW!!!  

 What Powerful Words Spoken here by David!! “For a day in your courts is better than a thousand.” Or “Better is the one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere.” I would rather be a doorkeeper of the house of God than to dwell in the tents of the wicked.

Serving God may not come easy to you, but I can guarantee you one thing and that is “it will be worth it when we see Christ face to face.” Yes, there is a pay day coming after while. There is a crow awaiting those that are faithful.

I CAN ONLY HOPE AND PRAY ON TODAY AS YOU ENTER THE LORD’S HOUSE THAT YOUR DESIRE IS TO PLEASE GOD.

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOU TOO HAVE A HEART AFTER GOD.

KNOWING THAT YOU DO HAVE A HEART AFTER GOD, I KNOW THAT YOU TOO CAN BOLDLY SAY ” A DAY IN THE LORD’S COURT IS BETTER THAN A THOUSAND DAYS IN THE TEMPLE OF THE WICKED.”

REMEMBER THIS: A doorkeeper starts in the heart!!!

GOD BLESS AND TELL THE LORD THANK YOU!!!!

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
