A Royal Blessing

In first Kings nine, the Lord responds to Solomon after he finished building the temple. “I have heard your prayer and your supplication, which you have made before Me; I have consecrated this house which you have built by putting My name there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.”

Think about it. We are now a temple made without hands. We have been anointed to be a habitation for the creator of all things. Yahweh has set his eyes and his heart within us. We have the capacity to see how he sees and experience his heart.

Ephesians 1:18-23 speaks about how Jesus was raised from the dead and raised to a seat of great power at the right hand of God. The power and authority he received was for our benefit. But, it doesn’t stop there. Chapter 2, verse 6 says this in the Amplified: “And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” Paul calls it “immeasurable riches.” It’s a royal blessing to be in his house and share in the expansion of his Kingdom.
