Psa. 84:10-12 IF I ONLY HAD ONE DAY

Intro: Ill. V. 10a - Consider for a moment that you only had one day to live. What would you do with that one day? Maybe you would spend it doing something you had always wanted to do, but had never gotten the chance. Maybe you would choose to spend it with family and friends. Maybe you would want to spend that one day fulfilling some fantasy, or perhaps it would be spent as had every other day of your life had been spent. In this verse, David seems to be considering that thought and comes to the conclusion that one day spent serving God is better than 1,000 days spent doing anything else. It seems to me that David is saying that if he only had one day in which to live, that he would spend it serving the Lord.

If I only had one day, how would I spend it? I think I would want to spend it serving the Lord. How about you? In these verses, David talks about his decision and the reasons why he feels this way. Let's look at these 3 verses as we think on the thought, If I Only Had One Day!

If I Only Had One Day, I'd Want To:

I. V. 10 BE FOUND IN MY PLACE

A. In My Place Of Service - David tells us that he had rather be the lowly door keeper in the House of God that to enjoy the all the wealth and luxury of evil. In other words, David says that he would rather be found serving the Lord than serving the Devil! I say "Amen" to that! The Bible makes it clear that every saint of God has a special place of ministry and service to the Lord, 1 Cor. 12:7-12. Now, while some positions are more visible than others, none is any more or less valuable than any other position in the body of Christ. The greatest thing a man can say is that he is being faithful to the task God has called him to. If I had one day to live I would want to be found in my place of service doing what the Lord has called me to do! (Note: He just wants to be in the door, where he can look in every now and again and see the Lord at work.

B. In My Place Of Surrender - The words "my God" seem to infer a sense of devotion to God. David is saying that he wants to be found in his place, surrendered to the perfect will of God for his life. In other words, he wants to die on the battlefield faithfully serving the Lord who sought him and bought him out of sin and destruction. If I had just one day to live, I'd want to live it still surrendered to the Lord's will for my life. There is no higher calling than that of simply being what the Lord wants you to be! (Note: When the Lord is "My God" all of His things will become exceedingly precious to me and I will want to be near Him at all times!)

C. In My Place Of Satisfaction - David is telling us by his decision that he believes the Lord's worst is still better than the devil's best! You see, the surrendered saint has learned something that the world never gets a handle on, "all the devil's apples have worms!" Nothing is more satisfying that serving the Lord and knowing that you are in His will. If I had but one day to live, I'd still want to be found in my place serving my sweet Lord! What about you?

II. V. 11 ENJOY GOD'S PROVISIONS

A. His Presence - David calls the Lord a sun. Like the sun above, the Lord is ever with His children, Heb. 13:5; Matt. 28:20. Like the sun above, the Lord is ever providing comfort for the journey. God lights our way, He warms our way and gives guidance to us along the way. Just as the suns delights the hearts of men, so the Lord delights the hearts of His children!

B. His Protection - The Lord is also called a shield. Just as He provides warmth and light for our journey, He also provides protection for His people in the way. The Psalmist tells us that we are protected by the Angel of the Lord, Psa. 34:7. He is above us to give us what we need and He is all around us to protect us as we journey toward Heaven. Thank God that we are kept by His power - 1 Pet. 1:5

C. His Promises - Now the Psalmist tells us that the Lord will give Grace and Glory. This is a two-fold promise to every child of God. We are promised His grace while we travel and His glory when we arrive at home. There is help for today and hope for tomorrow. God is simply promising to get us home safely!

D. His Plenty - Here we are reminded that the Lord delights in providing for the needs of His children, Luke 12:32. We must remember that we are His children and the sheep of His pasture, Psa. 100:3. One reason we have the troubles we have and worry as we do is that we have forgotten to whom we belong! We are the Lord's people and we are His responsibility, Matt. 6:24-33. He will bless your life, it is simply a matter of your learning to trust Him and rest in Him!


III. V. 12 SHARE GOD'S PROMISES

(Ill. This Psalm closes with the Psalmist praising the Lord and exalting Him. In doing so, he reminds us that genuine happiness can be produced only by placing one's faith and trust in the Lord. This speaks of a life that is yielded and walking in true faith. The person who walks in faith is blessed and can count on the Lord showing Himself strong in their need - Matt. 6:33. Like the Psalmist, God's people need to be in the business of spreading the word that faith in Jesus pays off. Our job is to share the Gospel of grace with a world that is sold under sin! If I only had one day, I'd want to spend it telling someone about Him!)

Conc: If you knew that tomorrow would be your last day upon the earth, how would you spend it? God help us all to decide to spend whatever remains of our days for Him and His glory. Blessed is the man who does!
