“Surely I will not enter my house nor lie on my bed, I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids until I find a place for the Lord’
Today, life runs at 100 miles an hour. As a society we try to hold pace with the Lamborghinis and Ferraris running the same track. For War Horse, this particular season leaves little time for rest and recovery. I am very grateful for the business. I am very grateful for the number of people who trust us to help take care of their assets. The bills are paid and this little company is thriving. However, a counterfeit god looms in the distance and the surpassing peace I desire does not.
In this psalm the journey out of Babylonian captivity brought about a need for a ‘resting’ place in which the ark of the covenant could reside. David was committed to finding this place before he himself ‘rested’. This was his mission and while he did have sin, his commitment to God left no room in his heart for a counterfeit idol.
My intent is to always put the Lord first in everything we do. When I glance at the driver in the next lane a passion to ‘keep up’ overrides that intent and I allow a false god to rent space in my heart.
Be encouraged brothers and sisters. David’s dream was to provide a place for the Lord. Our dream should be the same. All golden calf’s must be removed. ‘If we want this dream to come true we must first wake up’ and see the delusion for what it truly is.
