One is Enough

2 Questions:
1. Would you rather have one penny, or 1000 pennies?
2. Would you rather have one dollar, or 1000 dollars?

Silly, right? In this day and age, we know that a penny buys you… nothing. But a thousand pennies equals $10, which buys you a couple of fancy coffees or lunch. Even one dollar isn’t worth much today. But $1000 is significant. I’d certainly be happy with that!

Or, would I?

In today’s world, we think more is better. One dollar – or a thousand dollars? The majority of us would probably choose the latter. But having faith in Jesus means we have a much different perspective, don’t we?

This morning I was reading Psalm 84:10-11

“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. 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.”

In this case – ONE IS MORE.

One is – enough.

It’s all we should long for. Merely one day in the presence of Jesus our precious Savior, is better than a thousand apart from Him.

Psalm 84:1-2 –

How lovely is Your dwelling place,
O Lord Almighty.
My soul yearns,
even faints for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the LIVING GOD!

Just ONE day. It makes a huge difference. January 12th, my wonderful, Godly father was airlifted to a hospital having a massive heart attack. ONE day changed his life, and all of our lives forever. That day could’ve ended very differently. Thank You, Lord that he survived it, and is getting better every day. One day – makes a difference.

Today, I just pray that we may be filled with the awe of knowing without a shadow of a doubt that WE are chosen by Him. We have been chosen to live and dwell with Him. To grapple with questions, and worries – and bring all of it to Him. To trust in His wisdom, and Spirit to lead and guide us. To give us peace and understanding. To see our world through His eyes, and not our own. To rest in the knowledge that just ONE day – today – is better with HIM than a thousand anywhere else without Him.

And then… do it again tomorrow. One day at a time. May each morning bring refreshing, knowing that we have yet one more day to walk with Him. To do the beautiful dance of life with Him. Not apart from Him.

Psalm 143_8 - Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

God bless you – God be with you – may His joy be complete in each of you today, and every single day!
