I love your sanctuary, LORD, the place where your glorious presence dwells. – Psalms 26:3
David wrote a short psalm where he once again vindicated himself before God, but he turned the page and began praising God for the protection and provision He gave Dave. Nearing the end of the passage he told the LORD how he loved the place where the glory of God dwelt. In those days God’s glory hovered above the Ark of the Covenant in the tabernacle and later in the temples of Solomon and Herod. Today that glory dwells in the hearts of the disciples of Jesus.
The glory is where everything we need is. One place where the glory of God dwells in within this temple not made with human hands, my body. For know ye not ye are the temple of the Holy Ghost? God made us, humans, to be ultimate place where his glory would dwell among people on the earth. It wasn’t meant for tents or stone temples to house the Spirit and presence and glory of God, for he asked the psalmist where could anyone house him? Truth is there is no place but in the hearts and spirits of his children!
Father, thank you for making me the ultimate dwelling place of your Spirit. Help me to be a clean, useful temple for your glory and the advancement of your will in the earth. May my life be a living testimony to the greatness of your love and glory! You alone are worthy of all glory because you won’t share your glory with anyone else. I love you! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
