GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
When you are tired – troubled – stressed – do you have a place where you go to be alone, unwind, relax? A place where it is just you and God? Some people have a prayer closet, an actual room set aside for their alone time with God. Your prayer closet does not have to be a room, per say, it may be a special space that you’ve allocated for your alone time with God to sit, relax, and talk.
“Get in a quiet place – shut stuff down – get with God!” – Pastor Victor S. Brice
“Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46:10 (NIV).
We are commanded to be still – stop stressing – get to know God. God is with his people, us. He is our stronghold – our fortress – our strength – our refuge. Whatever you are experiencing, give it over to God. For any relationship to work you must get to know each other. Grow your relationship with God – get to know Him like He knows you. Often, we take the easy road – the easy route to reach our destination. However, no road is easy all the time. You will eventually run into bumps, twists, turns, and sometimes must take a detour.
i.e., We accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We have been saved and know that we are destined to live in eternity with God. We attend church on Sunday – not regularly. We participate in praise and worship – only in church. We pray – not consistently. Complacency is not good.
How is your relationship with God?
It is not hard to get to know God. Spend more time with Him – spend more time in His Word – spend more time in being obedient to His Word – spend more time in sharing His Word – spend more time in prayer. Grow your faith – grow your relationship with God.
Once this happens, you will routinely go into your designated quiet space and shut down everything outside of God. Your space will become God’s Space. Remember, God’s Space is consecrated, therefore, handle yourselves accordingly.
“There is no one like you, O Lord, and there is no God but you.” – 1 Chronicles 17:20 (NIV).
This is reality. It behooves us to give Him all the praise and honor. Make your space His Space. Get in His Space and get in His Peace. He wants us there and we need to be there.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:7 (NIV).
