Solomon built a magnificent temple for the Lord and, as he was finishing the dedication of it, fire came down from heaven to consume the burnt offerings and sacrifices and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
The redeeming grace of Jesus changed our relationship with God.
Now his spirit lives within us.
And God wants to fill us with his fire and with his passion – just like he filled Solomon’s temple.
God wants to fill us with his glory – so that his love and light can shine out of us.
God wants to fill us with his power, his goodness, his peace.
We just need to let him.
In Proverbs 2, God tells us to store up his truth within us. He tells us to call out for insight and to search for his truth like it was hidden treasure.
When we do this, we will understand the knowledge of God and we will know every good path that God wants us to take.
We want to be filled with your spirit, dear Father.
