I wrote this in my journal way back 2008. I was amazed by how God works through my life from the day I encountered Him up to now.

This is what the Lord says:
“Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
Where is the house you will build for me?
Where will my resting place be?
Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?”
declares the Lord.”
God is looking for a house and a resting place. He who is humble is attractive to the Lord. He wants you to be His dwelling place.
I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.
The pursuit of our heart is You, Jesus. Let us pursue God and David’s heart. Let us create this culture. The people who will create culture, who is true to God will attract heavens. Heaven will be opened up for us.
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.[c]
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.[d]
7 They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion.
8 Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty;
listen to me, God of Jacob.
9 Look on our shield,[e] O God;
look with favor on your anointed one.
10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
12 Lord Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.
He wants us to create a culture because He saw that we can contain and maintain the culture in our hearts and minds. The Lord wants us to have heart like David. We should communicate with God with our hearts open. House that attitude.
The Lord is so beautiful. We have to establish a culture of Love and Appreciation to God. We honor God by how we treat His sacrifices to us. The Lord our God is always with us , to love us, to cover us. Cry out for the living God. Tears are natural response. Sometimes we do not see God because we do not cry and so our heart is dry. The Lord wants us to cry out for Him. Lay everything to the Lord and you will be blessed. We have to cultivate the “splendorness” of the Lord. we shall praise the Lord whatever is the circumstance.
The House of God is a permanent dwelling place. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord.
