Exodus 39, 40
Focus Verse: Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. – Exodus 40:34

God was pleased with the tabernacle that the people of Israel constructed for Him. All that God commanded, they did, and their obedience was blessed. From the altar to the holy garments, everything was designed according to His plans. God did not have to change any of their work. All of it was done to His satisfaction. So pleased was He that His glory filled the entire tabernacle and no one else was able to enter it for quite some time.

God no longer dwells in tabernacles made with human hands. He dwells in the tabernacle of your body. He desires to fill you completely so that no one and nothing else can enter.

God values your body. He created it. His Son, Jesus the Christ, saved it. And the Holy Spirit lives in it. Take care of and honor your body in such a way that is pleasing to God.

You will not find God in a building. You will find Him in your body. God lives in you. His glory permeates your being.
