David has seen the power of God in his past dealings with God. Spending time worshiping on his own, he has seen God moving in miraculous ways. He has seen the power of God in the past.
If you feel like you are in the desert like David, are you able to look back and see where God has done great things? Have you experienced or seen the power of God in operation?
Now David would not have been allowed in the inner part of the sanctuary, but he came as close as he could consistently and saw God’s power and glory.
It is our regular worship that prepares us for the crisis experiences in or lives. You can’t expect to have God’s peace and confidence if we never spend time worshiping.
Our past experiences with the power and glory of God, prepare us for what lies ahead.
Warren Wiersbe says this: “What life does to us depends on what life finds in us”
Do we have a love for God in us? Do we have a storehouse of memories and knowledge of God’s word in us for which to look back?
David didn’t live in the past, but he used the past to get him through the present.
If we experience the love, power and glory of God in here, why do we not think we can experience it elsewhere?
David saw that in the temple and trusted him for the same in the desert.
