Shalom Within Our Walls
ps122:7 Peace[shalom] be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. 8 For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
guys, I believe God wants our house, our homes to be a place of shalom. To carry an atmosphere of His shalom - rest and refreshing, love and joy.
I was with an older wise lady this week that Holy Spirit so much speaking thru her and in her house was just such a peaceful atmosphere. Everyone who came there was just blessed by it. The shalom of God protects our hearts as a shield against worry and attack. Guarding our heart with His love. phil4:6
col3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Shalom in our houses and the houses of our hearts. That our houses may be a house of prayer and worship.
Isaiah 56:7 these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
As our bodies are temple of Holy Spirit (1cor 6:19), so let our house be house of the Lord, His presence, a temple of worship :)
ps5:7 But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house, At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You.
ps138:2 I will bow down toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name.
ps33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
ps48:1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. 2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. 3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
ps122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. 2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
