GOD IS YOUR DWELLING PLACE IN LIFE!

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations (Psalm 90:1).

Every Christian is expected to know the fact that God is his dwelling place in life. When God is your dwelling place, you are forever secured and protected in life. That is the reason why a Christian is expected to be bold and confident in the Lord no matter the challenges and obstacles of life. The Bible says in the opening text that Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God is his dwelling place in life. He should learn to be fully secured in God’s dwelling place and protection in life. A life that is without God in place is absolutely a life that is devoid of location and timing in life forever.

The Psalmist knew the fact that God is his dwelling place, and that was why he fully declared in Psalm 91:1 thus, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Whenever a Christian learns to make God his dwelling place and shield, he experiences the shadowing presence of Jehovah in life. When God is your dwelling place, you abide under His shadow of the Almighty in life. Abiding in the shadow of God is the secret place of the Most High where one is eternally shield from all dangers and attacks from the enemies in life. A life that is absolutely secured in God always is indeed a life whose destiny will surely be victorious and triumphant in God forever.

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ is our divine place, environment and location of our safety and deliverance in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” In fact, everyone should endeavor to make Jesus Christ is dwelling place, new location and eternal environment in life. When you are in Christ Jesus, you are dwelling in the secret place of the Most High and under the shadow of the Almighty in life. Therefore, a life that is without Jesus Christ is of course a life that is absolutely devoid of location, environment and safety in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is the secret place of the Most High and the shadow of the Almighty in life forever. Shalom!
