Dr. Bruce Northam - Senior Pastor
In our text, David begins with a universal question, “Lord, who may dwell in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill?” The question is not only about Heaven, it has to do with living in the presence of God. “How may I as your child live daily in your presence?” That question I am asked regularly, “How can I walk with God regularly?” “How can I dwell with Him?” David didn’t ask his pastor, he asked God. He went to the source! David asked this question because he, like us, understood well the overcoming power associated with a daily awareness of the presence of God. David understood the comfort, the power, the protection; every benefit of walking with God. His understanding of the power of God’s presence is illustrated by the way he phrases his question.
