Thus, says the Lord: Heaven is My throne, And earth is my footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? Isaiah 66:1 NKJV
I have heard people say God lives in one place or another. Some say life began on this planet when cosmic germs where deposited here from other places in the universe.
The popular theory among people who deny biblical doctrine is that a great explosion created the universe. Some people still believe mankind evolved from apes.
God created the heavens and the earth. The Lord created us in His image and likeness!
God does not need to lay His head down at night. He is not limited to one location at a time. God says heaven is His throne. The Earth is His footstool.
Imagine God sitting on His throne in heaven. His feet upon the earth. The Spirit of God fills every area of creation. God is everywhere all the time.
The bible does say there is one place where God chooses to take up residence. He chooses to dwell in the hearts of men and women who live by faith in Jesus Christ. God chooses to dwell with His people. Jesus chooses to live out His life in us and through us.
God loves all people. He does not want anyone to spend even one more day in bondage to sin. Jesus does not want anyone to spend one more day in bondage to unbelief!
Jesus is saving people today. He is bringing people back into His good and perfect will. Jesus is bringing people out of bondage to unbelief. Jesus is setting captives free.
Jesus is holding out His hand to you today. He is calling you to join Him in His work!
God can do great and mighty things in the lives of ordinary men and women. He can do great and mighty things in your life and with your life!
Will you call out to Jesus today? Will you ask the Lord to use you to share the message of life with people who are dead in trespasses and sins?
God does not expect you to do anything on your own. Jesus wants to set up His throne in your heart. Jesus wants to form His life in you and live out His life through you today!
The Lord’s throne is in the heavens. The earth is His footstool. The Spirit of God rests upon all people who choose to live for Jesus!
Will you give Jesus a place to take up residence today? Will you open your heart so Jesus can dwell in the innermost parts of your eternal soul?
