A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, October 27


2 Chronicles 7:1-3


verse 3: When all the Israelites saw the fire coming down and the glory of the Lord above the temple, they knelt on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “He is good; his love endures forever.”


This is the most fitting response to being in the presence of the Lord! We should fall on our faces in thanksgiving. God is with us all of the time, yet somehow we have become comfortable with this totally outrageous truth. I am so comfortable I am at risk of taking it for granted. I pray to God today to give me new perspective, that I may appreciate and be truly thankful for the gift of the Holy Spirit, which lives in me. Amen

In today’s reading, we see how the LORD God answered the prayer of Solomon, by coming down as a fire from the heavens, consuming the sacrifice. The fire did not come down responding to the fact that a sacrifice was presented at the altar, it was in response to the praying of that prayer. And those who were gathered in the temple courtyard did not run away in fear ; they instead showed their adoration and worshipped God.

Let us pray – God of Fire, Power and Great Strength , accept our worship and adoration to You and You alone, for You are Jehovah , Mighty God !! We pray, LORD, that You keep Your arms of protection and guidance…

2 chronicles 7:1-3 When all the people of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the lord above the temple, they bowed down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” The temple is dedicated by God with fire from heaven. The people responded with a combination of reverence and worship. Their praise glorified the goodness and mercy of God. I would have thought they would be filled with fear as they watched the fire come down from heaven, instead they were not afraid, just more aware of the goodness and mercy of God.  This dramatic appearance of the presence of…

2 Chronicles 7: 1-3


3 When all the Israelites saw the fire coming down and the glory of the Lord above the temple, they knelt on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “He is good; his love endures forever.”


Worshiping God in days gone by is very different from the way we worship today. We worship because our faith in God and the Trinity are part of our life. We have no symbols of burning bushes, or angels speaking to us and yet we believe. We worship because we believe in God and all that he has done for us. His love truly endures forever.


Dearest Lord, you…

2 Chronicles 7:1-2 - “When Solomon had ended his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. The priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord filled the Lord’s house.”


God, in His wisdom, changed the entire face of worship when the supreme sacrifice of Jesus eliminated the need for sacrifice of animals and the Holy Spirit filled those who follow Jesus and love God, making they themselves the Lord’s house, filled with the glory of the Lord. We have a duty to show this to others. It is part of being in what John Wesley called, the…

20201027 Tuesday, Daily Devotion - 2 Chronicles 7:1-3


1 When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. 2 The priests could not enter the temple of the LORD because the glory of the LORD filled it. 3 When all the Israelites saw the fire coming down and the glory of the LORD above the temple, they knelt on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and they worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD, saying, “He is good; his love endures forever.”


Today’s scriptures show the process of how to communicate between God and His people. First, Solomon prayed to God…
