UPDATE: That was wrong and I am glad. It is 9:22 PM April 24th so, keep your eyes open and keep in prayer. NO FEAR
They were the only tribe that stood with David when all others left, faithfulness, they were the place where the priests ministered and in Jerusalem, the holy of holies and the dwelling of the lord at the time.
I was reading this verse and it jumped out at me, you know how that goes. Thus the spirit spoke to my heart and he will too many that read this. What I got from this is as follows.
We are a royal priesthood, we are now the holy temple, temples of the holy spirit, we are as near to the lord as His beloved city Jerusalem, we are part of that new heavenly Jerusalem, the lords dwelling. His love for us, his protection, his caring, his holding us up as the foot prints in the sand.
When you are feeling down, you have the blues, not quite right, take this to heart, you are the beloved of the lord, he is with you, even when you do not feel it. The love of our heavenly Father still amazes me today, and it will to the day I die, how could the lord love me, a sinner saved by grace, or you, because of his son Jesus, the blood, and the presence of the living King of Kings.
Your heavenly father knows all you need, even before you ask, he numbers every hair of your head, he knows your name, your situation, he knows everything about you, He knows you better than anyone alive, when others may not understand you, or put you down, or take something you said wrong, and the lord knows your heart, he is the keeper of broken hearts. Every tear goes in his holy bottle.
I do not care what you feel, or what your going through today, know this, if you are one of his, he is ONE WITH YOU. Jn 17.
The lords mercy, grace, love, just came over me and encouraged me with this today, may he do the same for you, today and all your tomorrows.
The Lord watches over you when you are sleeping, he knows when you arise, he knows your coming in and your going out, he surrounds you with his Angels. The Powers That Be, The Devil, And Evil men, can not come close to that amen. They can not touch this with a 666 Foot pole.
