Where God Is Holy

His presence makes you holy.

What does holiness mean to you? Blessed, sacred, without sin, the essence of God Himself. A look through the Psalms on what is holy reveals a surprising result:

Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion. Ps 2:6

In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. Ps 5:7

He will answer from His holy heaven. Ps 20:6

Or who may stand in His holy place? Ps 24:3

When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary. Ps 28:2

God sits on His holy throne. Ps 47:8

In the city of our God, in His holy mountain. Ps 48:1

A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows is God in His holy habitation. Ps 68:5

And He brought them to His holy boarder. Ps 78:54

His foundation is in the holy mountains. Ps 87:1

Over half of the references to holiness  in the Psalms refer to a place. God makes a place holy just by His presence. The presence of God sanctifies, purifies, blesses. And when you receive Jesus and Savior and Lord, you receive Him into your heart and life. You are made holy because He is in you. You carry the holiness of God to the grocery story, the gas station, the backyard. Mediate on what holiness really means, then feel the power of it inside you. It is the power to heal, to restore, and and to bless. You’ve been given everything.
