Psalm 84:10 (Darby Translation), “For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness”.

Standing on the threshold, ready to enter, ready to cross that line, is just one single step way from entering into a whole new life, a whole new adventure in God. To stand at the threshold of the house of God, ready to enter in, ready to take that step to move up a level, ready to step in and over into something new in God, is a place where we would all love to be.

To be on the threshold of something great, to be on the threshold of a new dawn, to take that step, to cross over onto new ground, into a new area of ministry for God, into a new beginning of something so immense, so awesome. It can at times be overwhelming, and a little daunting, but never fear, for He who called you will equip you for every good work.

There is this scene in the film, ‘The Lord of the rings’ where Frodo and Sam have set off in their quest, but in the middle of a field, Sam stops in his tracks and says, “If I take one more step I go farther than I have ever gone”. If they had stopped right there, not taking that step, not crossing over that threshold, they would never have gone on to meet new friends, to fulfill their calling, and defeat the enemy. Some people are very comfortable in their comfort zones, but to take that step, to cross that line and move over the threshold into something new takes courage.

My friend, just as our text for today says in Psalm 84:10 (Darby Translation), “For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness”. I would love to be like David, who knew what it was to step over that threshold, to enter in and fulfill his calling. For even just one day, just one day fulfilling your calling, just one day stepping over the threshold into the things of God, is better than a thousand elsewhere!

Whatever threshold stands before you today, allow me to encourage you to take that bold step forward in God and enjoy the blessing of a new dawn in your ministry, a new beginning, and a new adventure of faith in the things of God. Step over the threshold and into a new level of faith, into a new place blessing for your life.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
