Dwelling With God In His Dwelling Place
Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:
“David My servant will be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever. My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people”
Praise our Lord God that He has set His sanctuary in our midst forever specifically so “My dwelling place also will be with them!”
God WANTS to dwell with and within us, His Own New Covenant people, and the entirety of this Scripture from Ezekiel is true for us right now through Jesus Christ, Who presently dwells within us as both our King and High Priest. Jesus, from the line of David, currently is our forever Prince of peace and we are in a New Covenant of peace with Christ, Who dwells within us, having set up His sanctuary presence of peace within us, in our midst, so He may always be with us, for He is our God and we are His people!
Let us humbly, gratefully, and joyfully dwell with our God Who has come to dwell with us.
We are so blessed and favored to be dwelling with our God through His new and eternal “covenant of peace.” Yes, we are certainly highly favored to be currently living in peace with our “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6), knowing for sure, concerning our Savior, that “He Himself is our peace” (Ephesians 2:14).
The Hebrew word used for “dwelling” in this verse means: a dwelling place, tabernacle, resting place. God is presently dwelling within us and we are blessedly invited to dwell, to tabernacle, and to rest with Him in His covenant of peace.
Beloved child and priest of God, minister to your Lord today in His presence and, in so doing, allow the peace of Christ, Himself, which surpasses all understanding, to fill your heart up to the fullness of God in Christ.
Yes, bless Him! Dwell with Him! Tabernacle with Him! Rest with Him! Minister to the Lord! Hallelujah!
