May 18 – Psalms 26, 40, 58, 61, 62, & 64

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Psalms 26, 40, 58, 61, 62, & 64. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

Some of the best memories I have of my life include times of worship. As a follower of Christ for my entire life I have had numerous intimate moments of worship. Some of them have been in a corporate setting at church or at convention, and others have been while I have been alone, with no one else around. The settings are different, but on the memorable instances one thing stands true; I have entered the sanctuary of God.

In David’s time on the run, entering God’s sanctuary of worship might be just what sustained his life. Read again David’s words … “I wash my hands to declare my innocence. I come to your altar, O LORD, singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders. I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.” (Psalms 26:6-8 NLT). David had such a relationship with God that he was able to enter God’s sanctuary.

I have connected with God several times in my life where I feel I have entered his sanctuary. All those times are when I come to worship already feeling closer to God. If you want to enter God’s sanctuary and truly feel his presence it is something you will have to foster long before entering worship.
