One Day with the Lord

by | Sep 26, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Psalm 84:10 “For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper and stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.”


One day with the Lord is better than a thousand spent in ease—gratifying the flesh. So often, we look at people that have a lot and are living in ease, having everything they want at their fingertips and be in lack of nothing. Sometimes we may desire to be that way, especially those times when finances are tight. But as we read here, one day in God’s presence far outweighs a lifetime of luxurious living and living to the flesh in sin. After all, where we spend eternity is what counts. You can’t take your lifestyle of ease with you when you die. What really counts is our ‘eternal soul’.

Being in God’s presence, and having a personal relationship with our loving Father, means more to us than being in the world without knowing Him. I would rather have God, than the world’s riches and ease. Wouldn’t you?
