Psalm 91:1; Psalm 91:14-16
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.
The word dwell here speaks of making our home in God’s presence and under His shadow, even as Paul prayed for the Ephesian saints (Ephesians 3:17) that God might dwell (katoikeo in Greek) in their house by faith, able to find a home in their heart and lives.
How comfortable are you in church, among other believers, when talk turns to the Bible and the things of God? True fellowship with God is like coming home to a place of rest, familiarity, and joy. If that is where you live, then the last three verses of this psalm finds God speaking directly to you! Read them again. May He find you today at home in Him!
My heart, Christ’s home,
Pastor Jack Abeelen
