Keep in Mind:

“Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. Selah." (Psalm 84:4, NRSV).

Lesson Aim:

DISCOVER why the psalmist expressed joy in worship,
FEEL the joy of worship, and
PROCLAIM the living presence of God throughout creation.

Background

The sons of Korah were porters (1 Chronicles 9: 17) and musicians (2 Chronicles 20: 19) for the priests. These positions meant that they dwelt in God's house. This physical closeness to God's house prompted their love and desire of God in ways that others may not have felt. The sons of Korah long for the Lord's house because they long for the presence of the Lord. Those who can live in God's house should always respond in praise because nothing is better than being in God's presence. There is joy experienced in worship in God's presence, and the benefits of joyfully worshiping God are immeasurable.

Lesson Commentary:

The Tabernacle of Worship (Psalm 84:1-4, NRSV)

1How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!
2My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
3Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.
4Happy are those who live in your house, ever singing your praise. Selah

The Tabernacle was a sacred place where God manifested His presence and communicated His will.  The physical Tabernacle of God is "amiable" or beloved because God dwells there (v.1), and the psalmists' souls long to unite with God.  They so intently desire the courts of the Lord, that they are weakened.  Their committed love for God is passionate, so their flesh cries out for God.  There is an insatiable desire to dwell in the house of God, as a bird desires a nest (v. 3).  The Tabernacle of God is an honored placed.  Those who dwell in the presence of God should perpetually praise, worship, and adore God (v. 4).

1.    How does your desire for the Presence of God compare to the psalmists'?

2.    What stories can you tell about where the Lord has delivered you from great trouble or hardship?

The Valley of Baca (Psalm 84:5-7, NRSV)

5Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.
7They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

Our definition of blessed should align with the Word of God.  We are blessed only in God.  The valley of Baca is the place of weeping or a valley of tears.  Finding strength in God and having a heart fixed on God is the source of greatest blessing (v. 5).  Even, in sorrow and times of weeping, which we all experience in life, with God those places are made easier (v. 6).  Faithful believers in God will experience the journey and grow from strength to strength (cf.2Corinthians3:18). We all become stronger as we grow with God, never weaker (v. 7).

1.    In your valley of tears, how did you keep your heart fixed on God?

Reverential Worship (Psalm 84:8-9, NRSV)

8O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9Behold our shield, O God; look on the face of your anointed.

Recognizing God in all His splendor should dictate how we approach Him.  The reverence for God as the "LORD God of hosts" indicates the writers' honor for God being Lord over heaven and earth's armies.  God is so vast, yet the psalmists approach God requesting attention to their prayer (v. 8).  In the midst of His sovereign rule, they desire God's ear to be attentive to them.  They recognize God is their shield and protector (v.9).  We want God to look upon us when we call to Him.  We must give humble attention to the majesty of God in the midst of our prayer requests.  God is attracted to our reverential worship.

1.    How do you approach God in reverential worship?

Joy in Worship (Psalm 84:10-12, NRSV)

10For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than live in the tents of wickedness.
11For the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good thing does the LORD withhold from those who walk uprightly.
12O LORD of hosts, happy is everyone who trusts in you.

Any day in God's presence is more precious than a thousand days anywhere else (v. 10).  Time with God should be the most dedicated and valued of all the time we have.  No time on earth is more valuable.  Our time should not be more concentrated on temporal moments than moments with eternal significance.  The Lord our God is both our guiding light and our protector (v.11).  God gives us both grace and glory.  He guarantees that we have grace in difficult times and glory in times of success in Him (v.11).  As God's grace and glory is given to us, we are compelled to walk uprightly.  And as we walk uprightly, God bestows wonderful things upon us (v.11).  When we trust God, we are blessed and have everything we need (v. 12).

1.    How have God's grace and glory caused you to walk uprightly?

2.    How does the reverential worship of the psalmist impact your thoughts of expressing worship currently?

3.    How do personal views of God impact how people embrace time spent in the sanctuary?

Lesson in Our Society

Churches, worship settings, and liturgical styles are changing.  By following what's trending or what might appeal to multiple generations, we can find ourselves compromising the tangible presence of God.  Worship is a lifestyle, though, and our lifestyle of worship should be reverential.  Time spent with God impacts our lives.  Rationed time in God's presence hinders the grace and glory we receive from dwelling in God's presence.  When insatiability for God wanes, so does personal worship.  We must revive our craving to worship God; it is the catalyst for revival in the global Church
