From Pastor Tony Cameneti
In the olden days God’s people were satisfied while they were IN the Lord’s House.
They mentioned two things about the Lord’s House; its goodness and its holiness.
Psalm 65:4 Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, the holiness of your temple! (ESV)
- Notice the presence and holiness of God in a place was enough to satisfy these Old Testament saints.
- That was then, today the presence of God isn’t in an earthly tabernacle because it became available to people.
As much as they enjoyed God’s presence, today we that are in Christ are much closer to the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? (ESV)
Here are some thoughts about being satisfied:
- If the Old Testament saints were satisfied IN an earthly house, how much more can we satisfied today?
- Why? Because we have God’s presence IN US.
- We can enjoy a double whammy when God’s Spirit comes ON US as we worship God in church.
Let’s soak in His presence allowing Him to comfort us, speak to us, and minister to us.
Most of all, let’s allow Him to SATISFY us!
Every blessing to each of you,
