Psalm 90:1

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
(ESV)
For the Lord to be your dwelling place, there are two things that need to happen.

First, the Lord needs to be a dwelling place, and if you know Him, you know that He is exactly that. He is a shelter from the storm. He is a refuge. He is our rock, our fortress. He is our comforter. He fulfills His role of dwelling place beyond any human understanding.

But secondly, for the Lord to be our dwelling place (emphasis placed on "our"), we need to enter in. We need to enter into fellowship with this God of refuge. For Him to be our God, is more than acknowledging the existence of that dwelling, it is to actually dwell there. To walk there, to talk there, to live there, to lay our heads down and rest there.

He has been a dwelling place in all generations of man, and there have always been men who made Him their dwelling.

Where do you dwell?
