“For the house, when under construction, was built of stone prepared at the quarry; so that no hammer, chisel or iron tool of any kind was heard in the house while it was being built.”
1 Kings 6:7 CJB
In other words, the house of God needs to be reverent, not filled with gossip and confusion, noise! It needs to be in order, the same goes for our own homes and hearts, where God also dwells! Don’t fill it with useless noise!
“May Adonai give strength to His people! May Adonai bless His people with shalom!”

In order to have shalom (peace) in our homes, we need to look to Adonai and allow Him to permeate our lives with His shalom!
“May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces.”
Psalm 122:7 CJB
Today, the best way to have shalom is to get rid of the noise, whether it’s the T.V., social media, the bickering and complaining or whatever distracts us from God!
Have a blessed day removing the garbage that distracts!

“Judah and Israel were numerous as sand grains on the seashore; they ate, drank and enjoyed themselves.”
1 Kings 4:20 CJB
When Solomon started his reign he did what God instructed him to do and Adonai gave them peace, prosperity and joy! It’s when he stopped obeying when things began to fall apart! The same is true today. God gives when we obey! This doesn’t mean we get all our wants, it just means God will bless us with peace, joy and a contentment with what we have!
“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.”
Job 8:21 CJB
Blessing doesn’t always mean health and wealth, it means being filled with the peace and joy of Adonai!

Have a blessed day!
