6/24/16: God is Known
Psalm 76:1a caught my eye. “In Judah God is known…” (NKJ). The Psalmist continues by telling us how it is that God is known in this region. He tells us God’s name is considered to be great, His tabernacle is known to be in the area, and everyone knows God’s dwelling place is in Zion. The writer also lets us know how God has protected them by breaking the arrows, shields, and swords that have come against them in battle.
I jokingly refer to our humble home as “Elliott Manor.” So, can it be said “In Elliott Manor God is known”? Is there evidence in our lives to point to the greatness of God’s name? Is there any indication on our property of God “tabernacling” with us? In other words, is the manor a place of prayer and peace – a place where God’s glory rests? Can folks come to our home and hear memories related of God’s protection and deliverance when hardships have struck?
What about your life and home? Insert the name of your household. Would this be a true statement? In ________________ household, God is known.
