Verse: He built an altar there, and called the place El-bethel (El Bethel), because there God had revealed Himself to him when he fled from his brother. Genesis 35:7
Meaning: The God of the House of God.
El Bethel, abide in me. Set up your home in the very depths of my soul. Let your words dwell in me that I may know and live by them and for you. Reveal to me the sin I must confess and turn from that I may be pure and blameless in your sight. Show me how to best honor you through this temple which you have set up within me. Guide me in my eating habits, in my entertainment choices and even in what I wear so that your house – El Bethel – that is in me may glorify you in all that I do. Grant me the discernment to know how to reflect you well.
