O Lord of hosts,
Psalm 84:12New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The preceding verses talk about God being our shield (protector), our light, and gracious lover Who withholds no good from the upright. Because of this, it is better for us to spend one day in His courts than a thousand elsewhere! We are so blessed by trusting in Him because He takes care of us better than even the best earthly father could. He shields us faithfully and guides us gently. He lights the way for us and is the Light of our lives. When we put our trust in Him instead of ourselves or others, we are entrusting our lives to the most capable Protector and Guardian. He gives us more than we could ever want or deserve. How good it is to seek the Lord and be continually in His presence! How truly happy and prosperous is the one who trusts in Him!
