THE WORD FOR TODAY
2 Samuel 6-8
2 Samuel 6-8
2 Samuel 6:11 11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months. And the LORD blessed Obed-Edom and all his household.
The song, “Surely the Presence of the Lord” is one of my favorite songs. It says, “Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place, I can feel His might power and His grace, I can hear the brush of angel’s wings I see glory on each face, surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.”
Obed-Edom the Gittite could have written that song. While trying to move the Ark of the Lord, David and his men ran into some trouble. So out of fear David left the ark of the Lord with Obed-Edom. Scripture records, “And the Lord blessed Obed-Edom and all his household.”
The ark of the Lord represented the very presence of God. It brought comfort and blessing to God’s children but it brought curses and problems to God’s enemies. I don’t know about you but I want HIS blessings on my home. I want HIS presence to comfort, heal, help, and hold me and my household close to Himself.
I pray that today you can feel the presence of the LORD in your life. AS you walk, work and worship this day may the fact that HE is with you bring you strength needed for today.
Father, You are with us and we praise YOUR Holy and Majestic Name…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
