One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4 May I be always amongst those who not only hear but know Thee, who walk with and rejoice in Thee, who take Thee at Thy word and find life there. The Valley of Vision, Puritan Prayers and Devotions, 1600/1700s

For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in his dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.

You are the one sure thing when everything around me shakes, You are unshakable. Beth Moore, b.1957, Christian author and teacher, So Long Insecurity


(in the day of trouble) my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord. Psalm 27:6 Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith. Henry Ward Beecher

Hear my voice when I call, O Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. Psalm 27:7 Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude - an attitude of dependency, dependency upon God. Arthur W. Pink


When You said, ‘Seek My face,’ My heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.’ Psalm 27:8 It is a great sign that God means to hear us when Himself shall thus invite the prayer. Thomas Goodwin
