Dear wonderful Sparkers,

I was reading 2 Chronicles 29:1-36 and it really blessed and inspired me! The passage is about Hezekiah becoming the new king of Judah. The previous king (his father Ahaz) actually shut the doors of the Lord's Temple so that no one could worship there. But during the first month of King Hezekiah's reign, he reopened the doors of the Lord's Temple and had them repaired. (verse 3) Hezekiah summoned all the priests and Levites to remove all the defiled things from the sanctuary and he asked the Levites and priests to purify themselves and purify the Temple of the Lord. In verse 17 of 2 Chronicles 29 it says "They began the work in early spring, on the first day of the year, and in 8 days they had reached the inner room of the Lord's Temple. Then they purified the Temple of the Lord itself, which took another 8 days. So the entire task was completed in 16 days. In verse 35b -36 says, "So the Temple of the Lord was restored to service. And Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced because of what God had done for the people, for everything had been accomplished so quickly."

"WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ME? " you may be wondering. Well, we live in the new covenant because Jesus has already come to earth and died on the cross for our sins and HE was resurrected on the 3rd day and He ascended back up to Heaven and HE is there right now. AND NOW the presence of God's Spirit, is no longer in a building like it was in 1 Chronicles, but WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LORD! (1 Corinthians 6:19) His Spirit has taken up residence in us who call upon the Name of Jesus to be the Savior and Lord of our life.

APPLICATION FOR ME AND POSSIBLY FOR YOU: The Lord wants to do a complete changeover in you during these next 16 days. He wants you and me to get rid of those things that should not be in the Lord's temple. He has some special things to reveal in His Word and during your prayer times and ALSO in the outcome of your physical body as you exercise daily, and stay within your calorie range daily, and drink lots of water daily...notice how many times I typed DAILY. :)

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I believe that You speak to us through Your Word everyday, but I confess that sometimes I miss the mark. Please help me to take this rhema Word (Now Word) that you've placed in my heart and expectantly ACT on what You've shown me. These next 16 days, (August 7th - 21st) I want to post a reply about what I'm doing physically with my eating, exercise and also what I'm doing spiritually and what You are revealing each day.
I am excited to see what You, Jesus, are going to do in ME! And as I change on the inside and the outside, my desire is for You to be glorified! In Your Name I pray, A-men.
