Get Out of the Way!

2 Chronicles 5:14 - So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house.

In our text today, the Ark of God was brought for the first time to the newly finished House of God. As Solomon and Israel finished building the Temple, the musicians began to sing and praise God as the ark is brought in. When the ark is brought in, something even greater is brought to the Temple: the Power and Presence of the LORD. As some like to say, "It got thick in there!" So much so, that the priest could no longer stand and minister because of the glory of the LORD.

When is the last time you felt the power and the presence of the LORD in such a magnificent and magnified way? When is the last time, while ministering for the Master, you just had to "get out of the way" because God had taken over? Far too many Christians have lived their life never to experience this. May it be our prayer today that God will show up in our churches and our families in such a manner that we will have nothing left to do but, "Get out of the way!"

  1. Don't you wish you could have been there to have witnessed that glory?

    I know we'll see it in heaven, but it must have been overwhelming to have witnessed it here on earth.
