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!!!!
