And the King of glory shall come in. —Psalm 24:7 (NKJV)
I had a dream once where Jesus walked through the door.
He was right there — before me, with enough room to fall on my face at His feet. To talk. Or weep. Or throw my arms around His neck and cry, “It’s YOU! You’re here!”
January and February have been tough months for me in the past. They’re gray — the months with the least amount of sunlight, the cold keeps us huddled indoors, and we’re in the post-holiday & revving-up-the-new-year mode where productivity reigns. So I tend to fall into thinking in the here and now…
My thoughts are consumed with: What’s on my To-Do list? What’s on the kids’ calendar? What’s the next task or goal I have to accomplish?
Go, go, go.
That’s a far cry from thoughts on what it would be like if our King actually walked in the room. Right now. Here, today.
Everything would come to a screeching halt, and Kingdom thoughts — glory thoughts — would dwell among us.
Whether we’re busy, overwhelmed (I so pray we’re not!), in a goal-oriented mindset, or in the midst of packed-calendar living… My prayer is that we’ll remember that glory is there in the room. He’s constantly with us. Dwelling in the spaces we work and live and worship. So may we lift up our eyes — not just on the slow days. The “holy” holiday days. Or Sunday morning. May we lift our eyes to find Him in the room, day in and day out, and focus our thoughts on our dwelling place with Him.
Dwelling in His glory,
