Inquire in His Presence

Inquire in His Presence

One thing I have asked of the Lord, that I will seek after…to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4

Once you taste the manifest presence of God, you will want to come back for more.

When King David said, “One thing I have asked of the Lord,” he clearly identified that one thing—the manifest presence of God. He clarified God’s manifest presence in three ways—“to dwell in the house of the Lord, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Psalm 27:4). Dwelling refers to living in God’s manifest presence; gazing refers to seeing God’s manifest presence; inquiring refers to wanting more of His presence. We inquire about things we are interested in to learn more, to experience more, to gain more.

Today, as you pray, tell God how much His presence means to you. Ask Him to share with you His heart, His perspective, His motivation, His passion, His compassion and most importantly His presence.

Father God, today, I come to inquire of You. I want my heart to be exposed to Your heart and for You to share with me Your secrets. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
