KEY VERSE2 Chronicles 5:6 (ark brought to the Temple)
There, before the Ark, King Solomon and the entire community of Israel sacrificed so many sheep, goats, and cattle that no one could keep count!

No one truly understands my holiness, but I cannot fault you for that. You have an understanding of holy living, as well as power and beauty and love, but anything you can imagine still falls short of my reality. Nothing can contain me nor limit me. The cloud of my presence in this chapter represented my glory. There is no way to describe or experience me completely. Do not let that limit your worship. Instead, worship what you know and understand. I am bigger and beyond your experience or knowledge.

Just as the people sang that I am good and that my faithful love endures forever, sing the same song. You may not fathom all that I am doing in your life or the world, but I am active. I am at work, and I am good. Remember those things. Worship me with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Seek me, and you will find me. Meet with me and allow my cloud to envelop you. I love you today and always. Celebrate that truth!

Do you have a special place where you spend time with God? If so, go there today (or make a plan to do so). If not, think back to where you were the last time you felt close to God.
