Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing Jehovah-Jireh…
This is God’s House on Earth…
“The one thing I ask of the Lord— the thing I seek most— is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.” (Psalm 27:4–5, NLT)
Yesterday while writing the Glory Seed Peace and Rest in my imagination I saw that God’s House is made of glass. The concept of God’s made of glass is based on what Jesus said about hiding a candle. “No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5:15–16, NLT)
God’s House is completely transparent with the exception three rooms a Prayer Closet, a Bath Room, and Safe Room. It is in the Prayer Closet where we can have intimate conversations hidden from the world and prying eyes with God. One thing I have discovered wherever I open the door walk in and shut the door behind me not only can I get intimate with God I also get intimate with myself, discovering things about myself I would never have discovered any other way. In addition to the normal use of a bathroom the Bath Room affords one a place for cleansing the soul/spirit.
You wouldn’t think you would need a Safe Room in God’s House after all how much safer could you be living in God’s House? The answer to that is really very simple, if you are reading this then you are living in God’s Glass House on Earth, this isn’t God’s Forever House. However, even though this is God’s Glass House on Earth you’re still afforded Divine Protection by the Holy Spirit. But when living in a glass house people can see in and you can see out. What you see in the outside world can be very disconcerting and challenge your faith so by going in the Safe Room and shutting the door you’re not only temporarily shielded from the outside world while at the same time the Holy Spirit is strengthening your faith.
“Faith isn’t hoping for the best life has to offer, Faith is anchoring oneself to the Best God has to offer!”
Grace and PEACE,
