This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet I will be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they have gone.” Ezekiel 11:16

Every place in which the Lord manifests Himself is a sanctuary to a child of God.


Jesus is our sanctuary, for He is the true place of worship built by the Lord, not by human hands. We see the power and glory of God, in the face of Jesus Christ.

Because every place is a sanctuary, where God manifests Himself in power and glory to the soul. Moses, doubtless, had often passed by the bush which grew in Horeb; it was but a common thorn bush, in no way distinguished from the other bushes of the thicket. But on one solemn occasion it was all “in a flame of fire,” for “the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire” out of the midst; and though it burned with fire, it was not consumed. Therefore God being in the bush, the ground round about was holy, and Moses was bidden to take off his shoes from his feet. Was not this a sanctuary to Moses? It was, for a holy God was there! Thus wherever God manifests Himself, that becomes a sanctuary to a believing soul. where God manifests Himself

We don’t need places made holy by the ceremonies of man; but places made holy by the presence of God!

Then a stable, a hovel, a hedge, any unadorned corner may be and is a sanctuary when God fills your heart with His sacred presence and causes every holy feeling and gracious affection to spring up in your soul.
