Psalm 84:4-11 “Blessed are those whose strength is in your house; they are ever praising You.”
That’s where we love to be – securely in God’s house, enjoying His presence and the fellowship of His family- but we are not called to a cloistered life…
“Blessed are those whose strength is in You, who have set their heats on pilgrimage. (AMP in whose heart are the highways of Zion)”
This verse is talking about people who are going places. God promises that, even if some of those places are difficult and trying (valley of Baca – ie. weeping v6), we can find victory, go from ‘strength to strength’ (v7), and find ‘His favour and annointing’ (v9).
Always remember though, that our strength is found and restored as we are found in His presence, ever praising Him.
