Lord, remember David
And all his afflictions;
How he swore to the Lord,
And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
“Surely I will not go into the chamber of my house,
Or go up to the comfort of my bed;
I will not give sleep to my eyes
Or slumber to my eyelids,
Until I find a place for the Lord,
A dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
— Psalm 132:1-5

This is why Psalm 132 is so crucial in our experience. It shows us a mature saint who has grown by the Lord’s transforming hand. He has become one with the Lord. He no longer thinks, “How can I bless other saints? How can I be used by the Lord? How can I be a blessing to the church?” Now he is in a different realm. He can tell the Lord, “I don’t know whether I’m a blessing or not. I don’t care whether I’m used by You or not. These things no longer matter to me. But Lord, I am still so desperate! I ask You, where is the reality? Where is the substance of all the things we have talked about?”
