June 1

“But will God really dwell on earth with humans? The heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!”  2 Chronicles 6:18 (NIV)

King Solomon asks this question in his prayer of dedication of the new temple in Jerusalem. Of course, what Solomon meant was that the temple was not big enough to contain all that God is. Even though it might be called the house of God and His presence would be there, He would also fill the universe. Although Solomon was praying about the temple, his question has a good answer in our lives. He asked, “Will God really dwell on earth with men?” What a wonderful truth that God DOES live on earth, right with us, as part of our lives. And at the same time He is everywhere!
