the best place to be

Psalm 45:8-9 (JDV)

Psalm 45:8 Myrrh, aloes, and cassia emit from all your garments; from ivory palaces harps bring you joy.
Psalm 45:9 Kings’ daughters are among your honored women; the queen, adorned with gold from Ophir, stands at your right hand.

the best place to be

The king’s glory was a common theme in the psalms, and the songs about him always hinted at the greater king to come.

Oh, to be in the presence of the king! To catch a whiff of his exotic fragrance — to hear the strumming of the strings as they play in his honor — it is the best place to be.

And the people you see! Do you see that queen, adorned in gold? And other kings’ daughters are there, just adding to the splendor of his presence. It is the best place to be.

Today, I want you to know that experience. My king in all his glory is coming. You don’t want to miss the thrill of being in his presence.

Come, Lord Jesus! Your presence is the best place to be.
