{ Day 163 }

One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. —Psalm 27:4, NKJV

This was the number one theme of King David's life. He had a desire to be fascinated, to be filled with wonder, to be awestruck, and to marvel. Our fascinating God created us with a need to be fascinated. The Word promises that the Branch of the Lord, which is a term for the Messiah in His humanity, will be seen in His beauty throughout the entire earth. The Father will use the beauty of Jesus at the end of the age to fascinate the end-time church with Jesus. The Holy Spirit searches the deep things of the beauty of God, and the Father has granted Him permission to impart aspects of this revelation to you and me. A billion years from now in heaven we will still be discovering new dimensions of the vast ocean of God's beauty.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Like David, I long to be fascinated by Your glory. Your beauty fills me with wonder and marvel. I will never stop being motivated by Your love to become more and more like You.

To live before God with even a beginning measure of awe
completely changes the way we look at sin.
