Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Year of the Blessing
The Temple Builders Three…
““And Solomon, my son, learn to know the God of your ancestors intimately. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and a willing mind. For the Lord sees every heart and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him. But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. So take this seriously. The Lord has chosen you to build a Temple as his sanctuary. Be strong, and do the work.”” (1 Chronicles 28:9–10, NLT)
Like Solomon, you too have been chosen to build a temple, a house for God’s Spirit to reside. The temple you are called to build is not made of gold, silver, finely cut stone, and intricately carved wood. The temple God has chosen you to build is of far more worth. It is your own life.
The temple you have been chosen to build will be built out of the “stuff” of your life. The good happenings. The bad happenings. The in-between happenings. Even the happenings that slipped past you without noticing them. The Lord God knows of all your happenings He understands the fears, the weaknesses, the temptations that halt construction and he stands ready to help. God is the General Contractor, Jesus is the Architect, and the Holy Spirit is the builder of your temple given the chance when completed your temple will be unmatched by any temple built by the hands of man.
And it will withstand anything anyone or anything can throw at it! So be strong and smart let Them finish the job…Amen!
Believe in presence of the GOD and in the strength of his GRACE!
GRACE and PEACE,
