We Are His Lovely Sanctuaries

God of Heaven’s Armies, you find so much beauty in your people! They’re like lovely sanctuaries of your presence. Deep within me are these lovesick longings, desires and daydreams of living in union with you. When I’m near you, my heart and my soul will sing and worship with my joyful songs of you, my true source and spring of life! Psalm 84:1-2 TPT

“However, the Most High God does not live in temples made by human hands, as the prophet said: ‘Heaven is my throne room and the earth is but a footstool for my feet. How could you possibly build a house that could contain me?’ says the Lord Yahweh.‘And where could you find a place where I could live? Don’t you know that it is my hands that have built my house, not yours?’ Acts 7:48-50 TPT

He finds such beauty in us that He chose to dwell within us by sending us His Holy Spirit. His Spirit has joined with ours to birth His Kingdom in the earth. I love this concept. He chose us. Imperfect, but made perfect. Simple, yet complex. Ordinary, yet special.

A place where His Spirit dwells, that’s who we are. His sanctuary. Precious in His eyes. Surrendered to His plans and purposes. Not our own but bought with a price. Glorifying Him in all we do and say. Talking unashamedly about His faithfulness and goodness. Honoring Him daily. Giving to Him first of all that we have. Spending more time in His presence than in our own pleasures.

Be the sanctuary that carries His presence today.
