8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
nor are there any works like yours.
9 All the nations you have made shall come
and worship before you, O Lord,
and shall glorify your name.
10 For you are great and do wondrous things;
you alone are God.
11 Teach me your way, O LORD,
that I may walk in your truth;
unite my heart to fear your name.
12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
and I will glorify your name forever.
13 For great is your steadfast love toward me;

My Soul Longs for the Courts of the LORD
84 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO THE GITTITH. A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH.
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
O LORD of hosts!
2 My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
3 Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise! Selah
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6 As they go through the Valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength;
each one appears before God in Zion.
8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9 Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed!
10 For a day hin your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be ia doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12 O LORD of hosts,
blessed is the one who trusts in you!

Are you all here. I’m here. In the Presence of the Lord. In the total stillness and absolute silence of who our God is. And He is, I AM. There is an absolute peace and bliss in this place. There is a total slow down.
I had asked my friend for a quiet and slow love song. She loves songs but unfortunately she loves loud blasting songs.
But I’m in this place of silence and peace and the quiet still waters and I’m sipping in the presence of a holy God. One drop at a time. One breath at a time. One moment at a time.
What time. There is not time in this place. I could just be here and sit and bask in the glory of the Lord for all time and He just is the great I AM and I be thee His child, His bride.
What more can there be but that He is God.
Leviticus, Global University. I’m here in the presence of a holy holy holy God.
