Rainy Days and Mondays (Psalm 67)

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations (PSALM 90:1).

⇀⇀⇀⇀

From eternity past to eternity future, those of us who know God live in God and he lives in us. There is no expiration date on his presence and no boundary to his dwelling. We cannot go where he is not already. Even when we feel he is absent, he is present. He can leave our presence but we can never leave his. He is our true home and he wants us to make ourselves at home every day.

Before we came to Christ, we were spiritually homeless. Some of us drifted from one false idea of God to another. No doubt some of us went through turbulent times in our search for a spiritual home. And then one day we heard of a divine invitation to dwell in God’s home as his own child. We responded, perhaps with excitement, or perhaps with some caution. Could such an invitation really be meant for us—we who have wandered here and there in search of a permanent home?

Then we discovered that, yes, it’s true. We have been offered a dwelling place throughout all generations. We have found a safe place to lay our heads at night. We are at home. Finally at home. Here we will stay-even through the most difficult of days.
