All nations whom you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord; and shall glorify your name.
– Psalm 86:9
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
David worshiped God. From hiswe can see he knew that God is the Creator, and that the created human beings should worship God and obey God. David cared for . When he saw the people of Israel had no place to worship God in the wilderness, he wanted to build a temple for God, so that the people of Israel could have a place to worship God and praise God. This was his wish in all his life. All that David did is the manifestation of his love of God, and is the expression of obeying God and caring for God’s will. So, David was one who worked most in accordance with God’s heart. From the thing of David building the temple for God, we gain some inspiration: If we want to be someone after God’s heart, we should care for God’s will in all things, share God’s restlessness and wants, and what we do is all for the sake of satisfying God’s will. Only such people are fit to serve God. God’s words say, “Those who serve God should be God’s intimates, they should be beloved by God, and capable of the utmost loyalty to God. Regardless of whether you act behind people, or in front of them, you are able to gain the joy of God before God, you are able to stand firm before God, and regardless of how other people treat you, you always walk your own path, and give every care to God’s burden. Only this is an intimate of God. That God’s intimates are able to serve Him directly is because they have been given God’s great commission, and God’s burden, they are able to take God’s heart as their own, and God’s burden as their own, and they give no consideration to whether they gain or lose prospect: Even when they have no prospects, and they will gain nothing, they will always with a loving heart. And so, this kind of person is God’s intimate. God’s intimates are also His confidants; only God’s confidants could share His restlessness, and His wants, and although their flesh is painful and weak, they are able to endure pain and forsake that which they love to satisfy God. God gives more burdens to such people, and that which God shall do is expressed through these people. Thus, these people are beloved by God, they are servants of God who are after His own heart, and only people such as this can rule together with God.”
