Mid Afternoon Meditation 7-11-19

 

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
    whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
    they make it a place of springs;
    the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
    till each appears before God in Zion.

Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;
    listen to me, God of Jacob.
Look on our shield,[e] O God;
    look with favor on your anointed one.

10 Better is one day in your courts
    than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
    than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
    the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

12 Lord Almighty,
    blessed is the one who trusts in you. Psalm 84:5-12

What does it mean to you to have your heart set on pilgrimage?

  1. The KJV do not use the word pilgrimage. Base on verse 6 that refers to those who passed through the valley of Baca, it is referring to the journey of the Jews to Jerusalem to worship in the temple. Thank God our journey is no longer physical because the Lord abides in our heart.
