The Dwelling Place

Christ’s righteousness dwells in you. It is through Him that we choose to do right from wrong; that we choose to love instead of hate; that we choose to help instead of ignore. Some days are rough. Some days we do not feel like acting in a manner becoming of God; but those are the days God uses us the most. It is easy to represent God when life is good. It is easy to celebrate God when we are on top. But God needs us to show the world that even though times are bad; even though tragedy has arrived; even though the storms are raging; we know He is God. We know He is on the throne. We know He is in control. The only way to do this, is to be in His presence.

Psalm 91, “1He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 9Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place . . .”

It is God’s desire that we make His presence our dwelling place, that we stay encamped around Him, and from that we are equipped to be married, raise a family, work in our church, work in our community, and serve others. Wherever we are, we are in His presence. Whatever we do, we are in His presence.

God has no restrictions on where He can be or where He can go. He is not limited by past or worry or boundaries. By allowing His presence to dwell within you, you will be under His shadow and in His protection.

Today, spend some quiet time with God. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy presence. Remind yourself through out the day of your special bond with God. Keep Him front and center. Dwell with the Most High.
