S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Chronicles 13:14
The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he had.
David had desired to bring the Ark of the Covenant back home to Israel, but there was trouble along the way. David, out of fear of God, placed the Ark in the house of Obed-Edom and God blessed that house the entire time it stayed there.
Wherever the Ark of the Covenant was in the Old Testament, the presence of God was also there. I run into people all the time who are looking for something that will put them over the top, so to speak. They feel like what they have isn’t enough. They approach life with the continual thought, “If they had just a little bit more.” Some go for “More Work.” Others go for “More Pleasure.” Still others go for “More Education.” All of these are good to a point, but in time they don’t satisfy. I have found great satisfaction and fulfillment living in, “The Presence Of The Lord.” While living in His presence, The Lord has helped me love my wife, work hard, and raise a family. I’m telling you, there’s nothing like … “The Presence Of The Lord.”
Thank You, Lord, that just like Obed-Edom I’ve been blessed to live in Your presence. Thankfully, it’s been for a whole lot longer than just three months. Amen
