Habitation requires a habitat. Creating a place by making it ready to receive what it was designed for. There is an interesting word in the Greek and it is, hetoimazō, which means to make the necessary preparations, get everything ready and drawn from the oriental custom of sending on, before kings on their journeys, persons to level the roads and make them passable. This word is used for John the Baptist preparing a way in the wilderness (see Mark 1:3) and the Bride of Christ making herself ready (see Rev. 19:7). We also see it in how Jesus prepares a place for us so that we can dwell where He is (see John 14:3).
Here we see there is some “work” to do in order for a King to come in full Headship. Notice how Adam was charged to tend the Garden he was placed in. He had to serve and guard the habitat in which God walked with him.
How do we build this habitat?
Adoration is very important. Adoration is respect, reverence, strong admiration or devotion in a certain person. God literally sits and is enthroned on the praises and adoration of His people (see Psalm 22:3). Another way is getting cleansed. God will only require what He has first given you.
How to prepare a place for His Head to lay.
Being rooted and grounded in love.
Create a foundation of the Fruit of the Spirit.
Creating new paradigms.
Becoming an avenue or prism for the light of God to be displayed in His multicolored wisdom.
To believe that God is truly with us.
To have God shatter what we think we know about Him in our paradigm paralysis.
Come to the experience of the depths of Christ’s love.
Walking in the secret place.
Know we are here on earth to “do” and be.
Get rid of and live free from all shame.
Submit to Him and His polishing.
Know what the Church is really for.
Let us create that habitat for Divinity…not just a place for Him to visit but a place for Him to dwell.
