David’s life is oriented towards the sanctuary of God. Like a little child who immediately turns to look for his father whenever he is unsettled, David turns to God, and lifts his hands toward the sanctuary, crying out for God to hear and save him. David understands that God is not confined to a building, but is teaching his own body reverence for God’s presence, symbolized by the temple. In Christ, God’s people are the temple of God, and so when we worship together, we too lift our hands, discipling our bodies in the motions of reverence. And like David, when God does respond, our cries for deliverance turn into songs of thanks.
