God's Great Worth

"One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: 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 inquire in his temple" (Psalm 27:4, ESV).

It's also my recent favorite verse. It connects with the verse I began to treasure early in my life: Psalm 73:25 and it says, "Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you."

Both verses implied the Great Worth of God. So, if our eyes would be open to His Excellence, we would desire Him more than anything or anyone else. We would seek the privilege to be in His Presence to behold His "beauty" -- or to meditate on His Goodness and Greatness!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
