Daily Read - 1 Kings 7:1-51; Acts 7:30-50; Psalm 128:1-6; Proverbs 16:31-33
But Solomon built Him a house.
"However, the Most High does not dwell in
temples made with hands, as the prophet says:
'Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
What house will you build for Me? says the Lord,
Or what is the place of My rest?
Has My hand not made all these things?'
I now dwell in your very heart for you are the temple of the Holy Spirit. I find My rest in places that welcome and embrace My presence. Those places in the hearts of My people and those places geographical that prepare for My Kabad glory to come.
I am not interested in just visiting My people; I desire to inhabit the praises of My people. I never want to leave, but I want to remain in a constant communion with My bride. I love You and long for you to love Me.
Nothing could ever be built on this earth to house the kabad of My presence. Heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool. The most majestic palaces and extravagant structures in the world cannot even come close to holding whom I Am and yet, I live in you, My precious bride.
The greatest empires of man pale in comparison to My omnipotence; after all, the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of your God!
I search for places of holy habitation. My Word gives instruction for the church to prepare the way of the Lord and to make a place ready for My glory. I look for surrendered people who are washed in the blood of My Son Jesus Christ and desire to walk in obedience to My living Word. I move toward those who are radically in love with Me and embrace Who I Am in totality.
My glory is coming in a measure unlike anything seen or experienced before on earth. Is your temple ready for My coming? Have you prepared the way for My glory in your life?
Lord Jesus, if there are rooms in my temple unkempt, I invite You to come into those places and purge them from all impurity. Forgive me for neglecting these areas and trying to hide them from Your sight. I desire that my entire being spirit, soul, and body be ready to carry Your glory when it comes. It absolutely astounds me to know the God who sits on heaven's throne also sits on the throne of My heart. Amazing beyond comprehension. You are an amazing God.
