1 KINGS 8-9

Focus Verse: It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord.
1 Kings 8:10-11

 

I have to wonder sometimes if God thinks during some of our church events, “Those silly humans…why won’t they just let me do my thing.” We can get so concerned with “setting and atmosphere” and trying to produce things “just right” so that the Spirit will fall…but God doesn’t need any of that. He just needs us surrendered to Him.

 

My biggest fear is that I think, in reality, if something like this were to happen in the American church today, there would be some who would only be concerned with how they were going to collect the tithes and offerings since no one can get in the church. Boy have we missed it.

 

Make no mistake, I’m very thankful for tithes. My weekly paycheck depends on them. But I have asked God so many times to do this in our Sunday morning service. For His glory to fill our sanctuary (or worship center…whichever you prefer) so that we can’t even go inside! Wouldn’t that be amazing!

 

So join me in praying for God’s glory to fall. For it to fill our churches all across this world so that all we can do is sit outside and watch Him do His thing. That’s what the world needs to see. God. Not a flashy preacher or an amazingly produced worship set. Let God do His thing…all we need to do is surrender to Him.
