A Psalm of David.
1 Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the LORD; I shall not slip.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart.
3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, and I have walked in Your truth.
4 I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, nor will I go in with hypocrites.
5 I have hated the assembly of evildoers, and will not sit with the wicked.
6 I will wash my hands in innocence; so I will go about Your altar, O LORD,
7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wondrous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your glory dwells.
9 Do not gather my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 In whose hands is a sinister scheme, and whose right hand is full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be merciful to me.
12 My foot stands in an even place; in the congregations I will bless the LORD.
I have loved the habitation of Your house, and the place where your glory dwells. Where exactly is that? It can’t just be at the physical building of the church. God is far too big for that. Remember, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory. So Jesus is the glory of God, and where does He dwell? He dwells in the lives of those who call Him Savior and have pledged their lives to Him. If that is you, then your life is the habitation of His house and you are the place His glory dwells. If you remember that always, and live your life with integrity, then you will walk in God’s truth, stand in an even place, and you will be able to truly love your life and live it without any regrets.
