“I come to your altar, O LORD, singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders. I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.”
Psalms 26:6-8 (NLT)
David knew that it was more important to know God than to know about Him. He did not hide behind his role as King but remembers what it was to be a shepherd. A shepherd out in the fields worshipping God and trusting Him with everything He did. He knew God and worshipped Him with songs and instruments. Later in life David would write today’s passage sharing about the same experience. He writes, “I come to your altar, O LORD, singing a song of thanksgiving and telling of all your wonders. I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells.” It is easy to get in a rut learning all about God but never spending time knowing Him. It is great to love Bible study. Who doesn’t love an inspiring sermon. It challenges us to live for God. But in all the learning, in all the doing, we also need to love worship. We need to love spending time in His presence. Today, spend time in His presence. Come to His altar and spend time in praise and communion.
Father, I love Your word. I love serving You. But in all my haste, I must confess, I often forget to love You. I haven’t spent the time in Your presence. I haven’t taken enough time to worship You. Help me to come to Your altar more often. Help me sing thanksgiving to You and meditate on Your wonders. Might knowing and loving You be more important than knowing about You.
