II Samuel 22:21 ” The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has rewarded me.”

It asks in Psalm 24:4, “Who may stand in His Holy place?  He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol.”  To stand in the presence of the most Holy God is a place of reverence, but also refuge.  It’s a place of refreshment, rejoicing and reflection.  But it’s also a place of rebuilding and reconciliation.  Spend some time today in the Lord’s presence to fully experience His love, peace and perspective.

Nehemiah 8:2-3 ” So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. “

The Israelites had gathered together and asked Ezra to read the Law.  Many had never heard the reading of the Word, for they had been born and raised in Babylonian captivity.  The Lord had been faithful in rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem…He had miraculously  aided them in rebuilding the crumbled walls…but now it was time to rebuild His people.  The  Lord is wanting to rebuild His people again…to reclaim, restore, and re-establish  Believers for His glory.  Now is the time for you to break off the chains of captivity and allow God to begin a new rebuilding project in you.

Zechariah 1:3 ” ‘Return to Me’, declares the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will return to you’…”

Job 22:23 says, “If you return to the Almighty you will be restored.”  The responsibility lies on our shoulders…the decision, squarely on us.  For only we can resolve to turn around and come back to the Lord.  God’s position has never changed…it’s us that have wandered so far away.  But if we only turn our hearts back to Him, He will restore and rebuild our lives that are in shambles.
