Sit Before The Lord


“Then went King David in, and sat before the LORD.”
II Samuel 7:18 (KJV)

I love this verse. The Bible makes it clear that King David was a “man after God’s own heart.” David knew the heart of God and wrote many of the beautiful Psalms that we have come to love. In today’s passage we see David was moved deeply by God and had to talk to Him. What I love is that David went into the Tabernacle and sat before the Lord. This is the same Tabernacle where the sons of Aaron died because they did not follow protocol. Now some teach that sitting was a sign of worship in the ancient days. But it sure wasn’t what the Priests did. They could only come into the presence of the Lord and do exactly what was set down in the law. No more, no less. And here was David, like a child before his Father, sitting, no doubt in reverence but also in love. Love for His heavenly Father. And because of Jesus and His sacrifice for us, we too have become children of God and get to sit in His presence any time we desire. The Lord bids us to come to Him, worship Him, share with Him, pray to Him. Today, come to God. Sit before Him, enjoy His presence. Share with Him your burdens, your concerns. Express to Him your joy and your love. What a glorious privilege is ours, to sit before God Almighty.

Dear Heavenly Father, I sit before You in deep wonder and worship. Who am I that You would allow me to know Your presence and yet You do. Your love for me is immeasurable. I sit in worship and adoration. I sit in humility and praise Your Holy name. You are my God and I sit humbly before You.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
