What's your house look like?
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Psalm 27(New International Version)
This is only the first half of Psalm 27. I thought it was a bit long to share here and I stopped at this point because these verses caused me to picture the many types of dwellings that people live in. Whatever our homes look like, as believers, whether or not we live in a fortress or a tent, a sturdy house or a mud house, we are safe in God’s House. Though storms, wars, or any number of disasters may destroy our physical homes, nothing can destroy the Home we have with God.
I honestly wasn’t thinking of this when I started writing here, but please pray for the people who have had their lives destroyed by the earthquake in Nepal. And if you are able and so called, make a donation to any number of organizations which are already sending aid.
