Today’s Scripture Selection: First Kings 5:27

“But will God really dwell on earth?  The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you.  How much less the temple I have built?”

It showed amazing humility.

Here, a young king, who has built a most magnificent temple to God, admits something.  Even in the prayer of dedication, Solomon puts things in proper perspective.

No temple, not even the greatest one on earth, can “contain” God.

And it was perhaps because of that humility that God was pleased to dwell there.

I believe the same can be said of our hearts.

When we humbly

  • Admit our limitations
  • Admit our need of God
  • Admit how without God’s grace we would be nothing
  • Admit that we have done nothing to “deserve” such grace
  • Admit that God has blessed us anyway – out of the depths of incomparable love

Then – our hearts are ready – for God’s indwelling in them.

Prayer: Lord, may the words of my mouth and meditations of my heart be pleasing in your sight.  AMEN.
