Feet of God

Ezekiel 43:7 “He said, ‘Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place for the soles of my feet. This is where I will live among the Israelites forever.'” (NIV)*

He desires to live among his people. The temple of the Old Testament provided a place for him to be with them. Flash ahead to New Testament days where the believer—yes, we humans—are referred to as the temple of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 3:16).

Feet of God

gently treading by

remove your sandals here.

Unfurled crimson carpet

invites, waiting the

feet of God.

And how could the feet of God walk here, except by the sanctifying blood of Jesus?
