Psalm 63:2 – In the Sanctuary

As far as we know, David’s eyes never “saw” God. Not in the way we see each other. But I’m guessing each child of God can understand why he wrote:

I have seen you in your sanctuary
   and gazed upon your power and glory.
(Psalm 63:2)

 Oh, Lord! For a glimpse today of Your glory!

Christ’s death ripped the barrier apart—that barrier between Creator God and the creation He loves. The door to the sanctuary is flung open, and we’re invited to enter fearlessly, guiltlessly, in awe of the Almighty God and in awe that He names us His children.

We know His power and glory are there constantly, like the cloud and pillar of fire that guided His people through their wilderness. He guides us through our wildernesses, and we catch glimpses of the glory, we have tastes of the power.

As our eyes have been opened to know you, Father, we’ve seen your power and glory. Today let us linger in Your sanctuary and gaze upon all You are … gaze long and full and in awe.

Here we are, in Your sanctuary…



O God, you are my God;
    I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
    my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory.
             Psalm 63:1-2
