Sanctuaries 

Exodus 25:8  Let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.

Our hearts are sanctuaries for God’s Indwelling Spirit.  He resides in our hearts, opened to Him.  The Great I AM is near.  His Presence is known in the interior of our souls.  His love is felt in the deepest recesses of our hearts.  We worship Him from the inside out, for He dwells within us.  The King of Kings makes  peace reign in our hearts, and love abound!

Sustaining Spirit 

Psalm 51:10-12 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Thank you, Father, for creating our hearts to be pure, our spirits to be steadfast, our joy to be constantly restored, and our lives to be sustained by your Spirit’s power who raised Jesus from the dead. By Your resurrection power, our hearts are cleansed, our minds are renewed, our joy is made complete, our perseverance is perfected, and our lives are saved!  We relinquish our spirits to you for forgiveness, wholeness, and steadfastness. You sustain us by your power and love. We praise you! Amen.
