A House for Me

A House for Me

from Series: Prayer Points on Property

Moses built the Lord a house; we call it the tabernacle. Solomon built Him a house and we call it the temple.

Acts 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands.

Why are men so set on building God a house, when He doesn’t even dwell there? The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that God fills heaven and earth (Jer. 23:24). We don’t need a house to place God for He is everywhere. And if He wanted a house, He could build one much more majestic than we.

But there remains a need for a house, not for God’s benefit but for ours. We need a place where we can pray and worship and meet with others who wish to do the same. We need a place to remind us that the God who is everywhere is also right here. We need a place to display His fame and to invite others to call upon His name. To these ends then, let us pray for a house for the Lord.
