An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Not location

(Psa 63:2 KJV)  To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

As I read this, I needed to think a little bit.  David is talking about being in the sanctuary, but the temple has not been built yet, not even close.  He must be talking about the tabernacle.

Although the tabernacle was built to God’s specifications, I somehow don’t think about it being awe inspiring.  I think about a hot enclosure.  It smells like canvas and is on uneven ground.  Yet in spite of this, David is able to worship God’s glory.  It is more important to be aware of God, and to be in His presence than it is to have a specific spot that is architecturally beautiful.

So? Worship where you are.  It is not always location, location, location.  It is always person, person, person.
