TRUTH: Have you ever wondered why Jesus prayed “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”? There are a host of reasons but one of the main ones is Worship. We humans were created to worship. We are compelled to worship and commanded to worship by the God Who wrote His Law on each human heart. In his rebellion, the majority of mankind has always worship anything but the One True God of the Bible. But David, under inspiration from the Holy Spirit, exemplifies what a man or woman of God should think, walk, talk, and be like. ONE THING – he prayed in this verse, one thing he asked from the Lord. By standing on those two words, we too can exhibit to our Heavenly Father that He alone is EVERYTHING.
This one thing remains – just as our God inhabits and abides in the praise and worship of His people, we too much see to dwell in His House for every more and worship in His Temple. Isaiah Chapter 6 tells us of the sheer power, awe and majesty of the Temple of the Lord with the Cherubim and Seraphim flying back and forth before God’s Throne saying “Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty”. This is the real Temple of God and there are no designer coffee and expensive HD projectors with super star preachers. There is only God and Him Alone. This is where David wants to behold and look on the sheer awe of God forever more! This is an incredible reality and WOW! Is this your “ONE THING”? IT SHOULD BE!
