Psalm 84: A Roadmap of Reminders

Psalm 84

Have you ever experienced this longing deep in your soul for something more? Do you ever get to the end of the day and think, “There must be something else?”

I love this psalm because it reminds us that, as believers, we are all on a journey. We are not home and, so, there is this undefinable thing inside of us – this restlessness – to remind us that we are not yet there.

Psalm 84 is a bit like a roadmap of reminders for our journey.

• Our ultimate destination is the presence of the Lord (vs 1.)

• The longing in our souls is meant to spur us on (vs 2.)

• Scripture contains songs for the road – to uplift and encourage us (vs 2.)

• The Lord awaits our arrival and has a place prepared for us (vs 3.)

• The Lord provides strength for the journey (vs 5.)

• The Lord will bless those whose hearts are committed to the journey (vs 5.)

• As we travel, we are to bring life to barren places – light to dark places (vs 6.)

• We do not travel alone – they go, they make, they go (vs 6-7.)

• The destination is totally worth the journey (vs 10.)

• The Lord provides good things along the way (vs 11.)

There may be steep hills to climb
On we walk – one step at a time
Though valleys come – we march through
Knowing the road leads us to You
