May 5 Scripture Selection: II Chronicles 4-6

Food for Thought: II Chron. 5:12-14

What the people experienced during worship on the inaugural day of Solomon’s Temple can still be experienced today. There is something spectacular and glorious about a group of people singing and playing musical instruments to worship the Lord in one accord. What begins with natural human efforts and ability quickly becomes something that moves into the spiritual realm. The atmosphere is literally charged, and the presence of the Lord can be strongly perceived, even with our natural senses.

As the Word says, in His presence, there is fullness of joy (Ps. 16:11). That is why the psalmist encourages the people to enjoy His presence together in Psalm 34:3, 5a: “Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together…They looked to Him and were radiant…” Psalm 95:1-7 is another great exhortation to worship the Lord in song as a congregation.

Marvelous things happen when there is unanimous, faith-filled worship. In God’s presence, people receive healing and deliverance. Others receive a particular word by the Spirit for their precise need. But most of all, the presence of the Lord pushes away any malignant influence, and in its place, there is complete peace, love, and joy. It truly is glorious as we magnify the Lord together.
