2 Chronicles 5:13 It was the duty of the trumpeters and singers to make themselves heard in unison in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord, and when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals and other musical instruments, in praise to the Lord, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever,” the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, 14 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.
The temple of the Lord in Jerusalem had just been dedicated and, while the people were worshipping, the glory of the Lord showed up – causing the priests to fall to their knees. It doesn’t happen often, but there are times when I’m worshipping or singing and the presence of the Lord strikes me in such a way I cannot keep singing. In fact, I usually go from singing to weeping. Not tears of pain or sorrow, but tears of gratitude and love. And I’ll usually fall to my knees. This ever happen to you? It’s okay if it hasn’t. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. It’s just that not everyone experiences God in the same ways. That said, this passage resonates with me this morning.
Come Lord Jesus. Overwhelm us with your presence. Amen.
