This is Derek Prince with a word for you from the Word.

And in God’s temple everything says, “Glory!” (NASB)

“Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love.” (Psalm 29:9; 48:9 NIV)

You see, what sets God’s temple apart from every other place in the universe is it’s a place where there is only one theme, and that is God and His glory. Everything in the temple says, “Glory!” Not just the persons, not just the angelic beings, not just the worshipers, but the furniture of the temple, the very building itself. All cry out, “Glory to God.”

And then it says, “Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love.” It’s not merely outward expressions that ascribe glory to God, but it’s the inward meditation of the true worshiper. Its meditation is focused on God, on God’s unfailing love and faithfulness and mercy.

That means that God’s temple can be anywhere where we meet those conditions. When we meet those conditions – when our whole being cries, “Glory to God,” when all our thoughts are focused and centered on God, when we meditate on Him, then there, where we are – it may be in an automobile, it may be in a kitchen – but it becomes God’s temple because everything is saying, “Glory!” and every thought and meditation is centered on the person of the Lord.

So that’s what it’s like to be a temple of the Lord – and, remember, you and I are supposed to be God’s temples.
