In the past 10 years, i've had so many incredible moments in ministry all over the globe. Whether singing for a small family in a grass hut or leading thousands as we gather to worship in song, there is always one common denominator that joins us; our deep human desire to experience our creator in an authentic, tangible way. In those moments where we seek god with all of our hearts, we find him, and our lives are changed forever. These moments are called sanctuary. In psalm 73, the psalmist was strongly tempted to envy the prosperity of the wicked; a common temptation to each of us as we are constantly comparing our lives to others. In verse 16, the psalmist says, "when i tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till i entered the sanctuary of god; then i understood their final destiny." this psalm was written during the time of captivity where there was no physical sanctuary at babylon, and at jerusalem it had been long since destroyed. The word sanctuary here comes from the word mikdeshey, which may be taken in the sense of holy places - places set apart for prayer and meditation. There is no doubt that the captives had such places in their captivity; places set apart to meet god in for prayer, supplication, confession of sin, and meditation. These places are holy unto the lord and are, therefore, his sanctuary, whether in a house or an open field. My team and i pray that this recording will be a resource that provides an environment conducive to drawing near and experiencing jesus. So whether you can set aside once a week or more, i want to challenge you to get alone, hit play, and spend time with the lord in the sanctuary.
