Verse: A single day in your courts
is better than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.
For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The Lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies,
what joy for those who trust in you.
Insight: There is simply nothing better than serving God and being in his presence. The love, protection, and grace that God provides cannot be found anywhere else. These great blessings are for those that trust him, and in trusting him, we find great joy!
Prayer: God, we thank you for blessing those who trust you with overwhelming love, protection, and grace. There is nothing better than serving you. Help us to always place our trust in you, as it brings overwhelming blessings and joy. We love you, Lord. In your name, Amen.
