It Is Far Better To Be Connected With God Daily

April 13th, 2021

One day with God is better than 1000 days without Him. We have a choice to make for our families and ourselves. While it's not popular, God asks us to choose him first. Every day seek God. The Psalmist wrote it this way:

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. Psalm 84:10 NLT

As long as we live on this planet, there will be challenges, heartaches, and disappointments that threaten to steal our joy. Thankfully there will most likely also be days of peace and even happiness. Through it all, it is far better to be connected with God daily. For the Psalmist, he was willing to be a gatekeeper just to stay close to God. 

We stay close to Him through prayer, fasting, reading the Bible, and putting ourselves in places of corporate worship with people of faith. Open up your heart, life, relationships, vocation, and allow God to be a vital part of your life. This will keep you connected to Him and His house. For us, His house is His presence in our lives daily. 

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. Psalm 84:10 NLT
