GUARD AT THE GATE
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
This verse from Psalm 84 is so much more than it seems on the surface.
After all, God does not live in temples made of stone but makes His home in human hearts. So the house of God is in fact your own heart.
If you don’t guard your doors and gates from infiltration of falsehood, deception, fear, rebellion or anything that opposes God, you dwell by default in the tents of the wicked. God and wickedness cannot abide in the same house.
What fellowship can light have with darkness?
For this reason, it’s important for us to protect our doors and guard our gates. Otherwise, we may become a habitat for wickedness rather than a dwelling place for the goodness and glory of God.
In times of tumult and upheaval, we are more vulnerable to enemy insinuations. As an example, therapists report more patients with strong homicidal thoughts and feelings of deep hatred or hostility. The doorkeeper and the guard at the gate are essential to our wellbeing in the midst of violent times.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Psalm 84:10, 2 Corinthians 6:14, 10:5
Have you ever thought about your choice—
To be a doorkeeper in the house or God?
Or dwell in the tents of the world?
How do you choose between these two options?
How effective is your guard on the gateways to your inmost being?
