We are to live and move and have our being in Him. His desire is to live and have His being within us, His Holy tabernacle in the earth. Under the Old Covenant He gave very specific instructions for the building of the tabernacle. He changes not; even under grace, He still has details, specific instructions for building and inhabiting His temple, the place of His dwelling. God desires to meet with us in the Holy Place, that which is created and made according to His instructions.
Many have lived their lives around gifts and callings. Gifts and callings are those things, which originated in the heart of God and He gave to us. His desire is to receive from us those things that originate from within our heart – worship, adoration and reverence for Him. The Fruit of the Spirit, as it is produced in our lives will become a living demonstration of His abiding presence. He says our gift will make room for us. Once room is made, we are to become a representative or a demonstration of His abiding presence. His presence enables the Fruit of the Spirit to grow and reproduce in our lives. Many times, we fall into using His gifts to demonstrate His presence. Gifts are given for the building of His Body. We are not to be known by our gifts, by the Fruit and our love for one another. It is possible to move in the gifts and not have love. Love is the bouquet or aroma of the combination of the fruits and gifts in our lives. There are times when to walk in the Fruit of the Spirit is a sacrifice of praise, especially during this season.
He came into the earth, even though no room was made for Him. We celebrate this season of His birth, but many times, we make no room for Him. We become so caught up in our own plans, family, church or relationships we have no room in our daily lives for Him. We fall into the trap of saying after I do this…, when I finish…, the next thing on my list… He promises to come with His abiding presence, but how many times has He come and there has been no room. We sing our songs with our friends, spend time with family and He comes and we make no room for Him. How many times has He come into our church services, when we were gathered in His name but He found no room?
His desire is to be in the midst of us. He desires room in our life. His desire is to have a dwelling place in the earth for Him to live, move, and have His being. He stands at the door of our heart and knocks, asking, “Will you make room, right now, this very moment?” He desires to come in with His full salvation, His presence today and find room within our hearts. He desires to have the fullness of His being – a living, manifesting demonstrating presence that will show forth His glory in the earth. We desire the power and the authority; we long to see signs and wonders. He’s asking today, if you hear My voice to open and let Me come in.
