Built For Worship

You read of the elaborate house Solomon built for Me, it does not begin to compare to thee. How do silver, gold, jewels and the like, carry the price of a human life?

That house was built to worship Me, how much more I’d ask that you bow before Me, least once each day, to ask and pray for the lost, the lonely, those broken of heart; the ones that never had a start–for sin took their life.

Please pray for those left behind, to bear the pain, suffering and shame of a choice not right; maiden flight–stolen in the night, a heart too freely give.

Please bow thy knee, entreat of Me to come, to mend the heart clearly numb…

I’ll come

I’ll come

Each house is built to worship Me–a project only God could see–for the human mind could not devise, the intricacy of body, spirit and soul, placed together to make one whole. A spirit inclined toward the divine–the missing key, to fill the hole, of a heart that’s not complete.

Please pray for that one, that hungry soul. Please bow and ask that they might know…

That I can make it all aright…

I’ll come

I’ll come

The house was built for worship, a costlier one had never been built–until there was you–nothing compares to you!

Not gold, not silver–just you.

Worship and pray

I will come!

“The house which I am to build will be great, for our God is greater than all gods. But who is able to build him a house, since heaven, even highest heaven, cannot contain him? Who am I to build a house for him, except as a place to burn incense before him?” II Chronicles 2:5-6

“Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s house; all that Solomon had planned to do in the house of the Lord and in his own house he successfully accomplished.

Then the Lord appeared to Solomon in the night and said to him: ‘I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there for ever; my eyes and my heart will be there for all time.'” II Chronicles 7:11-16

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who seek him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24

“Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.” Proverbs 8:10-11

“–and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects.” James 5:15-16

“And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts, and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off for ever.” I Chronicles 28:9
