Have you ever wondered or even thought of what or how Gods house looks like? Its shape, kind of arrangement, how many corridors it has and all that stuff that’s included in a house?
Well I could try to paint a picture of how awesome and beautiful I think it is.
Every single day that’s passes, we all have something we desire, a thirst we want to quench or a need we want to meet but one thing am sure of we have all desired to dwell in the house of the most High. Our prayer is always to dwell in His courts for all the days of our lives.
Psalm 84:10 (BBE) For a day in your house is better than a thousand. It is better to be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to be living in the tents of sin.
They say that I a house is not a home until its filled with the laughter and noise of the family living in it. Growing up, we lived in a simple beautiful bungalow house spacious enough that we each had our own room. It had all the basics that made a house complete ranging from the sofa sets, the wardrobe’s, TV sets among many other things my parents considered necessary to make it a complete house for us. Within this big house, my favourite room was the living room, it was made up of the most prestigious items of the house including the game station and the nice sofa chairs where would sit and swing my legs up without any worries. Often, I invited my friends over just to parade the sofas that were got from hwan sung furniture.
It was really a nice spot to relax and hang within the house. We as a family always made it a point to get together every evening in the living room, get to watch movies, play games and listen to our dads’ old stories.
In the same manner we have a father in heaven whose house we yarn to dwell in all the days of our lives, the nature of God is that He is love, His a selfless God. I believe without a doubt that our fathers house is only full of love. The kind of love that He exhibited when He gave His only son to die on the cross for me and you, the kind of love that He has granted us all His inheritance in the kingdom as He has called us to be heirs to His kingdom with Christ. He basically just provided everything for us, I doubt then His house lacks anything. Psalms 84:4 teaches us about the blessing that’s in the house of the Lord.
His backyard decorated with beautiful roses, with angel’s allover the house shinning in their white attires, lifting and singing praises to Him with their beautiful voices. In the house of our God there is happiness, laughter, joy, dancing and singing and above all there is love. A love that puts everything aside just to care for you whenever you call upon His name.
His presence filling up the atmosphere, His spirit moving allover the place reconciling us in Him and keeping us together in the oneness of the body of Christ.
