Psalms 27:4  I have asked the Lord for one thing-
this is what I desire!  I want to live a in the Lord house all the days of my life,
so I can gaze at the splendor of the Lord and contemplate in his temple.

From time to time we should make a list of our wants and desires. We will find we tend to list them in an order of priority, our priority of our self-satisfaction.  As we look at this list we need to look at each thing asking what Jesus would want in our time and space.  If we really desire to dwell in the house of God for all eternity that desire will be on the top of our list.  All other things will relate to that one desire in some shape or form.  We have three worlds: the world of darkness where Satan is king, the world of bright light where God is King and the world between where we live.  We can’t see into the bright light for it is too bright for our eyes.  We look into the darkness and see all manner of shiny things Satin uses to lure us his way: riches, power, fame, etc.. It is hard to turn our eyes away from these things.  The longer we look at them the greater our desire for them.  God knew our eyes could not look through His light so He sent some of His light, Jesus, so we could see what was in the light.  As we learn to focus our eyes on the light of Jesus our desire will grow more and more until dwelling with Him really fulfills all the desires we can ever have.  The choice is ours: choose to look at Jesus or continue to look to the darkness and it’s temporal filling?
