King David said “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple” (Psalm 27:4). The New Living Translation reads, it is the thing that David seeks the most. King David is a man of prayer. He cries to God when he needs help and praises God when he receives the answer. And if there is one thing that he seeks most, more than anything else in the world, it is to be in the house of God constantly gazing upon the beauty of the almighty. He loves to admire his heavenly father in an environment of prayer.
In the new testament, our Lord Jesus makes clear to us what the house of the Lord is. In Matthew 21:13 he says, “My house will be called a house of prayer”. I truly believe that both our Lord Jesus and King David were referring to the same house which in modern english should mean an environment where we continually come to God in prayer. Literally it could be a prayer room or your car or any place you almost frequently come in contact with the Lord. This is where we are able to seek his presence and admire his glory just as David did. Do you agree with me? If you have another revelation to share, please comment below. Thanks for reading.
