2 Chronicles 5:13-14 (NKJV) Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying: "For He is good, For His mercy endures forever," that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, 14 so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God.
What a scene this must have been. Everybody was praising God with one voice and one heart, and then the Glory of the Lord filled the temple, and the priests could not even stand up because of the cloud that filled the house of the Lord. I do not know about you, but I want to see this again in my lifetime, and I believe that we can if we get ourselves into unity.
Unity does not mean that we will be doing the exact same thing. No, God has made us all different and given to us different gifts, talents and abilities. Unity is when we can take these God-given gifts and work together to get the work of the kingdom done. When we stop fighting each other and start working for the kingdom, we will see so much change in our lives. We will see so many people come into the Kingdom of God. But as long as we fight and backbite each other, it is going to be slow going.
God is not hindering His power from going forth in this world. We are! As long as we are going to fight and not do it the Bible way, then we will hinder the things of God from happening in our generation. But we can change, and we must change! We need to say that it is more important to do the will of the Father then our own will. We need to submit ourselves to Him, and watch and see what He will do in our land, and our world.
So make that decision today. Tell the Father that it is your heart’s desire for Him to be glorified. Tell Him that you want to see the body of Christ as the light of the world.
CONFESSION: I choose today to walk in love. I am a person that walks in unity, and who wants the best for the kingdom of God.
