- About Us
Like David, we are able to walk with God and keep our spiritual fervour by putting God first in all things, being captivated by a bigger vision, being prepared to correct our mistakes, and being willing to adjust our expectations.
This psalm helps us to walk with God through pain and to encourage others to do the same. There are four stages: weeping, worshipping, waiting and witnessing, and we mustn’t move too quickly to the next stage.
We bear fruit by concentrating not on the fruit itself but on putting our roots down in God. We are created finite and need to focus on what God wants us to do rather than trying to pour our lives into everything. Then we can avoid our work being in vain.
We are called to wait on God as a servant waits on his master, watching for an instruction before doing as he says. In the ordinariness of life we can get impatient, but we shouldn’t be giving instructions to God.
David was excited to go to the house of God, not because he had to or because he was looking for a good time, but because he was passionate about the purposes and presence of God, and wanted God’s name to be glorified.
