(Psalms 132-135, 1 Corinthians 8)

Arise, O Lord, and go to your resting place, you and the ark of your might.  Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, and let your saints shout for joy. (Psalm 132:8,9)

Do you know that you are the temple of the Lord? You!  You are called to be the resting place of the fulness of God. What a thought!  You.  Me. Us.  We are the house of the Divine.

David and his mighty men were stepping into the prophetic directives of their day.  They were searching the scriptures, listening to the rhema word of the Lord, and stepping into the promises given for their lifetime.  They were in the Word.  It was alive to them, and they were alive to it.

David sets up a tent and places the ark of the Lord in the midst of the people.  Open for all to see, David reestablishes the priests and assigns them to their duties.  The singers and musicians are appointed into a rotation, and 24/7 the Lord is honored and worshipped.

What a picture!  Today, may we step into this.  For all to see, let us dress in the righteousness of Christ.  Let us be the very resting place of our God.
