Daily in Your Presence - Sept. 23

Day 267


And he will branch out from his place

and build the temple of the Lord.

Zechariah 6:12

My child, you cannot confine My glory to a temple, though many have tried to do so. My power will break through the walls and reach into the hearts of people who receive Me.  I am building a greater temple than Solomon's, or the one Nehemiah rebuilt. I'm in the process of building a new temple—made up of believers everywhere—where My glory will be housed permanently in a New Jerusalem. You're one of the stones!

Human hands have not drawn the blueprints for our final home, Lord. You are gathering Your people as living stones to build the temple of God. You, Lord, are the builder of the temple. I'm so glad You chose me to be a part of Your long-range building plans .


Sticks and stones may break our bones, but love, God's love, will heal them.
