Psalm 84:3 Lark Sparrow in Aronia Berry Blossoms, Washington County, Nebraska.
“Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God.” Psalm 84:3 (NIV)
Living in God’s Presence
Only once a year the Jewish high priest was allowed to enter into the Holy of Holies in the Lord’s Temple. The Holy of Holies was where the Jews kept the Ark of the Covenant. God’s presence dwelled there.
Due to human sin, no other person could enter the Holy of Holies. Only the priest could enter. But birds, like all of God’s creatures, are without sin. It is thought that this psalm tells of a bird (and perhaps more than one) that built its nest in the Holy of Holies and had a home in the presence of God. How awesome!

God’s Mighty Acts Today
The Bible speaks of God’s mighty acts. When we read through its pages we can read about the great things God did in the past.
The ancient Hebrew people were witnesses to these acts. But how do we experience His mighty acts today. We may not see Him part the Red Sea, bring down fire from heaven or instantly calm a stormy sea, but we can still see Him work in our life and in the lives around us.
If for some reason we don’t see His mighty works in our life nor in the lives around us, we can look at His creation. Many wonders of creation like mountains, are glorious powerful and majestic. How much more glorious, powerful and majestic is their Creator!
