Our Dwelling Place

The Lord provides a place to dwell - a place to relax. Unwind. Be yourself. He invites us to abide in Him - make ourselves at home with Him. To do this requires great intimacy. It also requires a heart that recognizes Who God is. He is the Most High. He has been before the world was formed. He is Lord over my life! Yet, this awesome, powerful God invites me to "dwell" with Him. To be intimate with Him. He longs for me to be comfortable to share my struggles and lean on His understanding.

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or ever You had formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
Psalm 90:1-2

Who is the man that fears the Lord?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
He himself shall dwell in prosperity,
And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant.
Psalm 25:12-14

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust."
Psalm 91:1-2
