Today’s Inspiration: “Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul.” The whole assembly agreed to do this, because it seemed right to all the people.” 1 Chronicles 13:3-4 NIV. The Ark of God represents His divine presence, His mercy seat, His authority and power. Within the Ark were His heavenly manna, His rod of miracles and His Torah. David didn’t just want to build a physical temple without the presence of God or it will be pointless and religious. He was a man after God’s heart. Acts 13:22. He has only one desire which is the Holy presence of God. Everyone can have an altar but without the presence of God, there is no breakthrough or power. 1 Corinthians 4:20. Remember this, satan is not threatened or fearful of the altar but the presence of God.
Building our personal prayer altar is not a religious act but a prophetic move to bring back the Ark, the presence of God into the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is our spirit, soul, and body. 1 Corinthians 3:16. Without Holiness, there will not be changes in our lives, nor we have the fear of the Lord for wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Building our personal prayer altar is building a personal relationship with God where we consecrate our hearts through the Blood and the Cross of Jesus Christ to bring back the Ark of God, His presence into our prayer and personal daily life. Only repentance can bring back the Ark of God, in confession of our sins, transgressions and iniquities. Psalm 32:1. Remember God has never left nor forsake us but will we return and repent from our sins and fleshly ways at the Altar of Sacrifice. Do you want to personally encounter God again supernaturally and be filled with His glorious presence, provision and peace? Draw near to God and rebuild His Altar. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, a contrite heart and broken spirit you will not despise or turn away. Let there be fire day and night as I light up the lamp stand in the temple and bring forth incense of prayers, petition and thanksgiving unto you. For you have called us to be a chosen generation, a royal priesthood and a holy nation as your special possession, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
