In Places of Praise
"They are happy who dwell in Your house! Continually they praise You." (Psalm 84:5)
Imagine living where we could praise God all day long. Imagine being where just a few footsteps would bring us into His Presence, and we could come before Him in adoration.
'O you who fear the Lord, praise Him in the places where you are now. Change of place does not affect any drawing nearer to God, but wherever you may be, God will come to you.' (Gregory of Nyssa)."
Praise Him in the place where I am now? Wherever I may be, He will come to me? Now, that is a beautifully 'cloistered heart' idea, and a striking promise, and I know it is the truth.
I do, however, need lots of reminding. So with this in mind, I hope to spend the next few days here visiting some of the places where God can meet with me. Would you like to come along?
The truth is: we live precisely where we can praise God all day long. Just a word of prayer can bring us into His Presence.
We can come to Him in adoration, wherever we may be.
