Imagine how amazing it must have been for the Israelites in the wilderness to know that the very presence of God lived just on the other side of the curtains of the Tabernacle. God, in all His power and glory, was… right there! But in time, they began to take God’s presence for granted, and their hearts turned away to idols. As a result, they lost His presence! Did you know that God still longs to dwell with us today, but He will not do so if we have any other “gods” before Him. Are we actively cultivating our hearts to be a pure, holy, welcoming place for God’s presence to dwell?
God’s Wisdom for Everyday Life
If you knew there was a book that contained eternal wisdom for every area of your life; a book that would help you make wise decisions in your family, your finances, your job, your relationships… would you read it? God has given us that book. It is called Proverbs, and if we study it, God’s wisdom and character will flow through our lives, affecting the day-to-day decisions that we make.
