January 26, 2020, 1 Kings 8:54-61 – Post 2 – ISSL Reflection

As you read through Solomon’s blessing/prayer what did you notice?

He moves from kneeling and facing the altar and as he addresses the people he first acknowledges the Lord God. My suspicion is he turned to face the people and now calls the people to face God.

He brings to their recollection their travels with God the faithfulness of God over generations.

He asks God’s continued presence with them and calls them “walk in all [God’s} ways.”

He reminds them that the walk with God is carried out “as each day requires.”

He ask them to keep in mind that they are a “witness” to all others as they walk with the covenant keeping God.

And it is a whole hearted walk as they “devote themselves completely to the Lord our God.”

What stands out to you?

Was your attention called to something I failed to acknowledge above?

What speaks to you the loudest?

Is there anything in Solomon’s blessing/prayer that leads you to notice a gap in your prayers or daily walk with God?

If so, spend time there and offer that insight to God.

We’ll talk later.

{ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est}
