January 28 – Day 14: Tabernacle Prayers
The Altar of Incense
In the book of Exodus, the requirements needed for the temple were very specifically laid out in God’s instructions. The items he requested allowed his people to move toward him depending on their level of purity. The altar of incense represented worship.
Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering. (Psalm 141:2)
THE ALTAR OF INCENSE – WORSHIP
Prayer and worship pleases God. He has done so much for us and continues to on a daily basis. In response, we pray, we give thanks, we offer sacrifices and we worship him. God reveals himself to us in new ways every day. He may have been God your Healer, God of Peace, God your Shepherd, and God your Provider. Each day think about how God has revealed himself to you and how you can worship him for it.
Today, in your prayer time, worship God for all he has done, for all he is doing, and for all the ways he has revealed himself to you. Be assured that your worship is like a sweet incense to God in heaven.
think about it:
What are some of the ways God reveals himself to you?
How can you worship God today?
