Deuteronomy 12:5-7

Deuteronomy 12:5–7 (ESV): 5 But you shall seek the place that the Lord your God will choose out of all your tribes to put his name and make his habitation there. There you shall go, 6 and there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, your vow offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock. 7 And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.”

God has a specific place for you to worship. He chooses the house we are to belong to for His purposes. Stop church shopping and pray! He has the right place for you.

Moses makes a declaration relating to the place of worship for the children of Israel. Jerusalem will become that place. God’s temple will be erected there and this altar will become the main place of sacrifice. The tithes and offerings of each worshipper are to be brought to this house of worship alone. People were not free to worship corporately as they had decided. God made that decision for every family.

Do you belong to the place of worship that God has chosen for you? Christians these days have so many options for worship. Sadly, many choose a church based on the amenities offered hence the phrase, “church shopping.” Stop it! Pray for God to lead you to the place He has chosen for you. Then be active in that place serving, tithing, and worshipping the King of glory. He has the right place for you. Seek Him and then go where He leads you.

Father, thank You for directing us to the place we are called to worship You corporately. May we contribute with our tithes and talents for the glory of Your name and blessing of others we pray in Jesus name, amen.
