Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Chron. 3 & 4)
“The Message of the Temple”
Text: 2 Chron. 3:17
“Then he set up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand and the other on the left; he called the name of the one on the right hand Jachin, and the name of the one on the left Boaz.”
“The Message of the Temple,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
These Two Massive Bronze Pillars, 27 feet tall and 18 feet around, were set at the entrance to the Temple. They had a name with a message to declare to all who entered:
Jachin - He shall Establish
Boaz - In it is Strength.
The Message of the Temple is God Loves to Establish Things With His Strength.
When Israel looked at the Temple they saw these massive bronze pillars, “Jachin” and “Boaz” and were reminded that God Establishes Things With His Strength.
This reminder gives us the proper mindset of humility (dependence upon God Alone) and confidence (in His All-Sufficiency), to enter His House, His Temple in our heart every morning, noon, and evening.....
King David saw “Jachin” and “Boaz” in God’s Plans for the Temple; and the Message of the Temple was central in David’s heart as he wrote Psalm 27:
“One thing I have desired of the LORD,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD,
And to inquire in His temple.” (Psa.27:4).
The Message of the Temple is to us today. God Establishes You and I With His Strength. Our dependence upon His Strength keeps us humble, and also Confident in His Unlimited Power, Love, and Wisdom - that Establishes our steps of righteous living:
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the LORD upholds him with His hand.” (Psa.37:23-24)
Listen up Warrior! Hear the Message of the Temple: God Establishes and Strengthens us With His Strength; as we Do Justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly With Our God (Micah 6:8).
