Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would

dwell in the thick darkness.     2 Chronicles 6:1 (KJV)

2 Chronicles 5:13-14 (KJV)

13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord;

14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.

2 Chronicles 6:1-3 (KJV)

6 Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.

2 But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.

3 And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood.

When we hearken to the voice of the Lord and keep His commands He will always exceed our expectations. We serve a God, who is faithful, and He is faithful to fulfill all His promises that He has spoken over, in and through us.

When the true presence of God comes in the room, it will stop all activity. His presence bombarded them to the point that the priest could not stand to minister. Know that has not changed; when God comes in the room and fills it with His glory; God begins to minister and OUR posture changes to WORSHIP. When the Lord shows up, know He has come to make good on His Word or to release divine instructions.

Know that He says that He would dwell in the thick darkness. Today ask yourself have you truly experienced the darkness of His presence. The place of hiddenness, the place where glory is not covered up or masked. It’s the place where eyes become opened, and we begin to see Him in all of His Majesty.

Because He dwells in darkness know He has the power to penetrate every realm of darkness. He created darkness. Therefore, God is not afraid to come into your darkness to rescue you and bring you out of all your fears.

Today let’s ask God for the real manifestation of His glory that will cause men to stop and experience the magnificence of HIS presence.
