I Have Chosen This Temple

I was reading in 2 Chronicles tonight and ran across this passage where Solomon had asked God to hear his prayers and the prayers of the people of Israel that were offered at the newly-built Temple. God replied in chapter 7, verses 15-16:

I will listen to every prayer made in this place for I have chosen this Temple and set it apart to be my home forever. My eyes and my heart will always be here. (NLT)

After I read that, I got to thinking. God doesn't dwell in the Temple anymore (Acts 7:48), but He lives in our hearts. That means:
  1. God will listen to every prayer of MY HEART
  2. God has chosen ME/MY HEART to set it aprt to His home forever
  3. God's eyes and His heart will always be on, with and in ME/MY HEART
How awsome is that!
