Today’s 333 Devotional: “Meeting at the Mercy Seat”
When wanting to hook up with someone we say, “Let’s meet at “Fill In The Blank” This is what God is saying to us. God wants to hook up with us at His mercy seat.
After giving Moses the tabernacle’s blueprint, and the construction of the Ark of the Covenant, the Lord said, “And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.” (Exodus 25:22)
The Ark was then placed in the Holies of Holies, the innermost room within the sanctuary where the High Priest would come yearly to offer Israel’s sacrifice to bring them into a right relationship with God. It was there that the Lord would meet with His people, from above the mercy seat.
It is from the mercy seat that God meets with us today. But not the one built back in Exodus, but the real one, the heavenly one, and the reason God meets with us from His mercy seat is because of what Jesus Christ did as our Great High Priest.
“But Christ came as High Priest … with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” (Hebrews 9:11-12)
It’s because of His sacrifice and His shed blood upon God’s heavenly mercy seat that we have redemption, that is, we’ve been made right with God, therefore, it’s from God’s heavenly mercy seat that He meets with us today.
It is with this complete assurance that we can meet with God.
The writer of Hebrews tells us. “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 14:6)
And so, God wants to hook up with us today at His mercy seat to reveal His will and way.
