Art of Living #39

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #39 : "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand." (Psa 84:10).
Å℘◎ṧт◎ℓḯḉ Їη☂℮ґρґℯ⊥α☂☤☺η : Only those who are truly God's face seekers, who have got addicted to the presence of God can really say from their heart, "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand." The sons of Korah who were a musical tribe of priest who dwelt in the tabernacle of God's temple to minister to the Lord through their music, came to understand the privilege of being in the presence of God so much that they considered this as their ultimate enjoyment in this earthly life. You must understand that these priests were denied property by God and were paid through the tithes of all the people for their day to day food. They never moved beyond a room, where they kept doing the same things again and again for the Lord. What did they find specially that they were able to say what a rich person in his highest enjoyment could never dare say?

If you were in their shoes you would definitely understand what they understood by experience. If a man earns a lot of money and works hard for a season and then He chooses to spend his money to drink, feast and make merry with His family and friends at the end of it all, he would be enjoying days of festivity and feasting to fill his heart with joy. But such celebration brings only momentous joy after a long time of hard work. The priest who dwell in the tabernacle to minister to the Lord do not have any property as their portion but they have the Lord as their portion and gurantee for their blessed survival and prosperity (Deut 18:1-2). When they depend on the Lord day in and day out for their day to day survival and joy, what would the Lord do? He will be very pleased not only to provide them the best portion of people's offering that they bring to the Lord, but also will fill these priest's heart with His very own joy daily and thus make them to swim in heavenly ecstacy of which the richest man can only get once a season. O what a privilege!

This is the reason, those who are sold out to fulfill the will of God as bondservants are the most joyful people on this planet earth. They will be joyful always inspite of their tough circumstances that people will consider them to have gone out of their mind many times (2 Cor 5:13; Acts 26:24). In the Old Testament only the priests had this priviledge to minister to God in His temple, but in the New Testament all the believers are called to be a royal priests of God to minister in the body of their's which is the present dispensation living temple of God made without hands (Deuteronomy 12:11; 1 Peter 2:10; Acts 7:48; 17:24; John 4:24; 1 Cor 6:19). A person like Apostle Paul reminded the whole Church to rejoice in the Lord constantly because he knew the priestly potential that they had inside them (Phil 4:4). God says to all royal priestly believers of the New Covenant, "32 For after all these things [i.e. physical, material and financial needs] the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." (Matt 6:32-34). The face seeker of God will know the secret of living an abundant life on earth because of experiencing the fullness of joy in His presence and receiving the highest pleasures of life directly from the hand of God without their effort (Psa 16:11). What are you waiting for? IF YOU WANT TO FIND THE PATH OF ABUNDANT LIFE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH, START TO SPEND TIME IN HIS PRESENCE SEEKING HIS FACE CONTINIOUSLY. If you are a face seeker of God, He Himself will become your strength and make your life a time of prelude of heaven on earth.
