Life only has meaning and I only have worth if I have ___________ in my life.
What’s the “one thing” that your heart craves?
What’s the “one thing” that you think would change your life?
What’s the “one thing” that you look to for satisfaction, contentment, or peace?
What’s the “one thing” that fills your day-dreams and your meditations?
What’s your “one thing”?
Through your times of jubilation and times through of sorrow,
through your times of great success and through your time of failure,
all through life, let ONE THING remain:
Let God Be YOUR “ONE THING”.
MAY YOUR ONE THING BE – to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life!
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me to devour[a] me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.
For I delight in your commands because I love them. I lift up my hands to your commands, which I love, and I meditate on your decrees.
Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart. They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways.
I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, O LORD, proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
I have sinned against the LORD.’ And Nathan said to David, ‘The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
Jesus Said… "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
