“These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go along with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God, with the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival” (Psa. 42:4).
David spent a lot of time in exile away from
Jerusalem , and he wasn’t able to be at the temple
worshiping God. He really missed it. His soul
was thirsting for God, like a deer pants for water (Psa.
42:1), and he was longing to be in worship again. He
remembered how great it was to be in worship and rejoiced
when he could get back. When we make our lives around
worshiping the Lord, the loss of worship time will leave a
big hole in our lives. Let’s not fill that hole with
something else. Let’s get back to God before it is too
