Temple Of God
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for December 7, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
Lord our God, we gather in your presence, coming from this world so full of suffering, grief, and misfortune that we could well be afraid. But we do not have to rely on this world. We can come to you, the almighty God. You are our Father, and no matter what may come, we remain your children and receive your blessing. So protect us in this present time. Even if a flood of evil seems about to break over us and our hearts are heavy, you will uphold us. You will strengthen us so that we can bear this time patiently, hoping in you and in what you do for all people, who are your people just as we are. May the praise of your name be in our hearts for ever and ever. Amen.
Daily Commentary: The temple of God lies within us and we are to cherish the gift as a sacred bond between the Lord and us. No where is it more important than right now to dwell in the house of the Lord for He has promised us salvation.
Our hopes, our dreams and our future relies on us being faithful to the Lord. Let Him teach us his ways so our path is straight. When suffering, grief and misfortune befall us who do we turn to? Is it society? No, it is the Lord and when our hearts a entrenched in house of God, nothing can take us away from His love.
As we make our way along the pathways of life, let us come to the mountain of the Lord and lay our fears and our problems at His feet. May we always be mindful of our thoughts and actions and put God’s thoughts and God’s actions into practice.
