Dedicating Your Temple For The Lord
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord"
1 Kings 8:10-11
This wonderful event occurred during the dedication of Solomon’s temple, which he had built for the Lord. The ark of the covenant has just entered "the most holy place" (verse 6) and that’s when this happened - a cloud of glory so great that the priests could not even stand to minister. The glory of God overwhelmed them all. Oh praise God! When you and I realize that Jesus Christ, God’s ark of His New Covenant, lives within us, and we are a temple of the Holy Spirit, and we dedicate our temple to our Lord, and meet with God as ministers to our Lord (1 Peter 2: 6-9), then God’s glory fills our house!
Oh yes, beloved child of God, know this as you minister today in your Lord’s presence. God our Father is blessed when we dedicate our temple to Him. Meet with God, dedicate your temple to Him, and let His cloud of glory fill your innermost being to the point where it’s not even about you ministering any longer, for His glory has risen, overtaken, and overwhelmed you. Praise God in and for His presence. Let the glory of the Lord fill your house. Hallelujah!
