When I asked God what would help with a relationship I was struggling with, I immediately knew it was this word- humility. Just as those in authority have a responsibility and weight hanging over them for us, they also have a joy of seeing our growth when we exhibit humility. Solomon took a posture of humility in this dedication prayer at the temple. On his knees with arms outstretched before the people, God answered by accepting the sacrifice and sending fire to consume it.- Teresa #Itrieditmywayandfailed #urwayisbest

Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel and spread out his hands. (ESV)

2 Chronicles 7: 1-3 (ESV)

7 As soon as Solomon finished his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. 2 And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord filled the Lord’s house. 3 When all the people of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped and gave thanks to the Lord, saying, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.”
