God’s New Home – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 18th



(Your Heart Is His New Altar)

TO THE BIBLE: Acts 17:24 CEV
“This God made the world and everything in it. He is Lord of heaven and earth, and he doesn’t live in temples built by human hands.”

Many people still love to designate special “altars” where they “meet with God,” whether it’s a particular room in their house or a corner of the living room.

While having moments of privacy with the Lord is essential, creating “special altars” is not a necessity today. We are now His living tabernacles; your heart is His new altar.

In the Old Testament, they built altars for worshipping the Lord, and these altars served as places where they met with God and received divine direction.

For instance, Jacob returned to Bethel, where he first built an altar to the Lord (Genesis 35:3).

Genesis 8:20 tells us about Noah, who “…built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.” However, this was the old order.

Today, where you are is where the altar is, for the altar is in the temple, and you’re the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16 NIV): “…For we are the temple of the living God.

As God has said: ‘I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.’”

1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”

Everywhere you are is the place of His presence. You can pray in your room, speak in tongues in the kitchen, and worship in the Spirit even in the bathroom!

Anyone who comes in contact with you encounters divinity because you are a carrier of God, the home of His presence. Hallelujah!

I’m a God-carrier, the home of His presence; I could never fail or be defeated, because the greater One lives in me. I impact my world with His divine presence today, and saturate my environment with His glory and righteousness. Blessed be God!
