Better is One Day

"Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise! ... For a day in your courts is BETTER than a thousand elsewhere... No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly... O Lord, blessed is the one who trusts in you." -Psalm 84:4, 10, 11-12

May we truly believe that Jesus is BETTER ...better than any worldly comfort, earthly pursuit or temporary pleasure, JESUS IS BETTER. He alone is the God of all comfort, He is our hope and He is our peace. He is ever faithful and never changing. Because of Him we are able to say "It is well with my soul," even when it is not well with our circumstances. It is finished, the debt is paid; He is the way, He is the truth, He is the life, and one day He is coming back to reign. May our lives reflect that we truly believe ONE DAY in His courts are better than a thousand elsewhere...

"Oh praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead ... Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow!"
