Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“God With Us”
Text: 1 Kings 8:10-11
“And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD,
so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD.”
“God With Us,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
King Solomon has brought the Ark, the “Dwelling Place of God,” into the Temple he prepared for God.
Yesterday we discussed Building a House for the Lord; today we see God “Filling His House with His Presence!
The Cloud that separated Israel from Pharaoh at the Red Sea, and led Israel to Mt Sinai, and through the wilderness Every Day - now filled His temple in Jerusalem! This was a clear sign of the continuity of God’s Presence with His people.
We can look forward from this moment to this day, knowing God’s Presence is With Us in the “temple” we are building with our life.
When His manifested presence fills our temple “no one can stand!” Every soul falls down in His presence.
Listen up Warrior! Faithful Warriors carry the Presence of God with them at all times. How then shall we live? He tells us how in Eccl.12:13:
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.”
And Micah also records this requirement from God:
“He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8).
Humbled by His Presence With Us, we fear Him, we do Justice, we Love Mercy, and we Walk Humbly with Him. Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
