When the Glory of the Lord fills the House

I Kings 8:10-12
And it came to pass, when the priest were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord. So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.

I reading through some scriptures and got a couple thoughts for this. If there one thing that every Christian needs and every Preacher needs and every Home needs and every Church needs it is the Presence of the Lord. When Gods presence showed up in this place the priests couldn't even minister because the Lord was so thick. Would God help us to see his presence so thick that all we can do is stand still and see his glory.

I. We need is Presence in our Hearts.
I know were are saved, but having his presence is essential in our lives. I know I have lived my life without his presence, and I know when I have his presence. I have prayed and just felt like that was useless.
When we have is Presence in our heart
Sin will be Confessed
Self will be Crucified
Spirit will be in Control

II. We need his Presence in our Homes.
When his presence is not in our Home that means that most likely their is Rebellion going on. Rebellion is wrong no matter the reason rebellion is going on.

Husband will be Spiritual Leader.
Wife will Submit
Children will be Suborninate.
This is the way home must be for our churches to see his presence. The Lord will help us get to this point in our homes if we let him. Our churches will only be as strong as our homes.

III. We need his Presence in the House of God.
His presence there but we need the move of God in his House. What happens when he gets in the house.
Sinners Repent. People will get Saved.
Sliders Get Right. When God's presence shows up they have no where to run but to the altar.
Saints Revive. We get are shout and excitement back when he fills the House.

In closing may the Lord help us to see his glory fill these three areas in our lives.
