Oh, Lord God, the power of this verse makes me shiver in awe. The visual of your glory coming to rest on the Holy of Holies affects me deeply, and it must have impacted the priests and the witnesses even more. I just rest in reverence to your greatness and your desire to be close to your beloved. I am humbled that you desire an intimate relationship with me. I bring my thanks to your mercy seat in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“’For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever,’ the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.” 2 Chronicles 5: 13b-14 ESV)
