Dedicated

2 Chronicles 7:15-16 (NIV)
15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.

These are God's words following the dedication of Solomon's temple. These words follow an admonition for repentance and humility. God promises that His eyes and ears will always be open. To the repentant heart, to the humble soul, God will not resist but He will see and hear and respond. This is His choice, His covenant with the place where He is worshiped.

The NT says that I am a temple, that I have been consecrated. There is a promise I believe here for me that God's eyes and heart are turned towards me. "El Roi," the God who sees, sees me. He has chosen me, consecrated me, and I bear His name forever.

It has was always God's intent to dwell with and in men rather than in tents or buildings. Lord, let my heart be a dwelling place for You.
