The Essential 100, Day 38

God is with us. As we go through our day today, it’s important to realize the presence of God in our life. Solomon understood that as he built and dedicated the temple to the Lord. Read 1 Kings 8:1-9:9.

The dedication of the temple was extremely busy with so many reminders of the glory of God. This was an opportunity for the people to see God working and moving in their daily life. God was here, in their midst, and now they had a visual reminder of that every day.

When we think about our life, God is here and with us every day. The question becomes whether or not we remember that or if we act like that. Do we act with the knowledge that God is with us? The decisions that we make and the choices, do we recognize that God is with us wherever we are? Are we living in such a way that we would bring glory to God?
