Acts 17:24 CJB: “The God who made the universe and everything in it, and who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in man-made temples;
When you build temples or idols or images and expect God to come and live in it, you are actually wasting your time because He does not live in temples made by human hands. Some people actually carry these things and hope that God is in it, thinking that they are carrying God around. The Truth is that God has decided where He wants to dwell. And that is in you. He wants you as His temple. For the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:16, Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
God made this choice long time ago through His Prophet Ezekiel 37:27: My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people. So my dear friend in Christ, have a change of mind. Begin today to realize that you are indeed God’s temple. He has chosen to dwell in you by His Spirit.
This awareness gives you confidence never to be afraid again. Each time you remember that your God is with you, then you will go through life with confidence knowing that you cannot fail or be defeated. No divination against you shall stand because you are with the almighty God. Place more value in yourself than in any temple or object henceforth. Ask God to reveal more of Himself to you.
Declare to yourself loud: God Almighty is dwelling in me.
Oh Lord my God, may I never forget the fact that you are with me always on the inside of me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
