Where is Our True Home?
The God who created the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef, and Mount Everest, also formed the hills I call home. Although I’ve never seen those magnificent places in person, and maybe never will, God has given me a glimpse of His grandeur and majesty in my small neck of the woods.
The West Virginian hills are beautiful in their own right. Leaving the mountains will feel like I’m leaving a piece of me. It is my home. Always and forever. But really, where is my true home?
Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Psalm 90:1
Home isn’t a place, a building, or even things. Home is a feeling of rest and security. It is a place to find shelter for your heart and soul. When I read Psalm 90:1, I realized I was living in the wrong house. My dwelling place, a place to find rest and security, was not within these brick walls. It was a place for my soul. And my soul would feel restless until it found its rest in God.
When Moses penned these words in Psalm 90 and 91, the children of Israel had refused to go to their promised home. The battle and work seemed too big, and their trust in God was too small. So God said, “No home for you here in this land.”
They either were beginning their wilderness journey or finishing it. Either way, they had no home as a nation. Psalm 90 is the oldest psalm ever recorded. This song of prayer and petition to God holds truth we can abide within.
I recently wrote a devotional called “Coming Home” based on Psalm 90. Have you studied heaven from this picture of Moses’ hymn? If not, I encourage you to get my five chapter devotional. If you purchase it, you will get over $30 worth of bonuses Bible study pages.
