Happy Monday! Today begins our reading in Hebrews chapter 9. “That first covenant between God and Israel had regulations for worship and a place of worship here on earth. There were two rooms in that Tabernacle. In the first room were a lampstand, a table, and sacred loaves of bread on the table. This room was called the Holy Place.” Hebrews 9:1-2 NLT
Lord, thank you for the initial covenant and instructions for worship. While we know the Holy Place being described will begin to reveal our need and ability to worship and praise the Lord any where and at any time, I pray that He will reveal to us the significance of this chapter – about His covenant promise to Israel and our great need for a personal savior.
Father God, we thank you for your grace and mercy. We thank you for the opportunity to worship you in spirit and in truth. We thank you for your steadfast love that is unending and unchanging. That even in the midst of trials and joy we can worship who you are. Lord, continue to fill us with your praise. Lord, this week, help us to see how great and wonderful you are in our lives. Help us to worship you and you alone. In Jesus name, amen!
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
