1 Kings 7:19 
The capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were in the shape of lilies, four cubits high. (NIV)

And the capitals on top of the pillars in the portico were shaped like lilies, six feet high. (CSB)

The detail and artistry displayed in the Temple, its grounds, and furnishings are truly inspirational. This verse is easily overlooked with all of the other notes related to this massive project. Ponder the purpose of these lilies. They are forty feet up on top of the pillars. No one was ever going to see them from above.

The craftsmanship and beauty of these lilies were extravagant. Yet they were not placed there for the benefit of those on the ground looking up. This artwork was only seen by God. 

There are some songs sung only to God in the privacy of one’s own worship.

There are prayers heard only by God from the depths of hearts seeking what only God can provide. 

There are commitments carried out by dedicated souls who only communicate with God about their paths. 

Where is there unseen beauty in your life? 

Where is there private communion with God and God alone?

Where is there service seen only by God?

Where are the lilies in your life?

I will cultivate adornment visible only by God.

Our Father, in a world far too eager to tell all of its secrets, give us the grace to dwell in wonder and beauty known only to the two of us in private communion. Set this anchor in our souls that we may express your goodness in everything we do and say. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
