God desires to be with you. Think about that – the God of the Universe wants to be with you and me. Is that not amazing!
Title: God’s Desire Topic: God Dwelling with Man
Scripture – I Kings 6:12-13 “Concerning the temple you are building if you keep all my decrees and regulations and obey all my commands, I will fulfill through you the promise I made to your father, David. I will live among the Israelites and will never abandon my people, Israel.”
Observation– God makes a conditional promise to His people in this verse. God wanted to dwell with the Israelites and to stay with them forever. He promised that He would live among them if they would obey all His Commands. God is expressing a desire to be with mankind….He wants to be with the people He created.
Application – God’s desire is to be with me and for me to live not apart from Him but with Him. He wants to bless me with His presence and will do so if I follow His ways. God desires for me to want to be with Him and He wants me to respond to His love by doing the things He wants me to do….by following His Ways.
Prayer – Lord, help me to desire you as much as you desire me. Help me to understand the depths of your love for me.
