The Influence of God’s House

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Psalm 84:7

They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.


These are the words of the Psalmist concerning those who love the House of The Lord. He said they continue to grow in strength until one day they see the Lord.


After being raised in the House of The Lord myself, I can attest to what the writer is promising. “The Influence of God’s House” on my life and the lives of my children has been overwhelming. Every time I’m in God’s house I leave renewed and strengthened. My sons have experienced the same phenomenon. Where else do you receive this kind of continual influence of power on your life? The clubs can’t provide it. The race track can’t provide it. Athletic events are fun, but leave you exhausted. The long-term effect of any of those fields of influence weakens, not strengthens, you as a person. However, when you talk about the long-term effects of dwelling in the House of the Lord, it only takes you from “Strength to Strength!” To be honest, I live for Sundays. That’s when I get my STRENGTH on!


Dear Jesus,

Thank You this AM for Your house. I live to be in Your house. Thank You that just like You promised I have moved with my family through the years from “Strength to Strength!” Amen
