Devotion – Psalms 5

S – But I enter your house by the abundance of your faithful love; 

I bow down toward your holy temple in reverential awe of you

Psalms 5:7 CSB

O – Commentary:  God’s mercy (ḥeseḏ, “loyal love”) toward him. Another definition is favor. By this, he could approach the tabernacle to worship the Lord in reverence. The Hebrew word for bow down (often trans. “worshiped) signifies prostrating oneself, a posture that represents the proper inner attitude toward God in worship. The wicked are arrogant; a worshiper is humble before God.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures

A – Any of my family can come into my house and not feel like a guest.  We are not guests in God’s house.  Or even to come into His presence.  Through the blood of Jesus, we enter into that place with him with favor, mercy and grace.  Why?  God wants a relationship as much as we do.

R – Lord, thank you for desiring time and a relationship with me today.  Let me walk in your presence and be led by your Spirit in all things.
