Solomon dedicates the temple for the Lord. Note:
- The Glory of the Lord – After Solomon moves the ark into the temple, the glory of the Lord fills the temple – just as it filled the tabernacle earlier. Yet the temple can’t contain God, for God is greater. Ponder the glory of the Lord and praise him!
- Prayer – Solomon prays that God would hear the peoples’ prayers and forgive their sins that the people of the earth would know that the Lord is the one true God. What do you need to pray about? What sins do you need to confess? Are you seeking to spread the name of the Lord?
