1 Chronicles 22:19
19 Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the Lord God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the Lord.”
David said to his son Solomon, “My son, i had it in my heart to build a house for the name of the Lord my God” 1 Chronicles 22: 7. You must be deliberate in building the house of the Lord. David saw it as an opportunity to build the house of the Lord even though the Lord never permitted him to do that. Today, the Lord has given everyone the opportunity to build a house for Him; a house for His Holy name. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says “Do you not know that you yourselves are God’s temple, and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?”
Devotion and earnest pursuit of the Lord prepares Gods temple. Your bodies must be kept comfortable for God to dwell in by seeking His ways diligently.
Blessed is the man who has made his temple Holy for God to reside, because as God resides in your heart He comes along with His sacred articles.
