May 29–Living the truth of the 23rd Psalm–Part 8

Day 8 of reading through the 23rd Psalm–a few verses at a time–and asking the LORD to show me (us!) what living the truth of His Word via the 23rd Psalm means each day. Whether it is a day of sadness, surprises or celebration. 

…and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:6

Wow! A permanent address! I am a welcomed guest–a very beloved child–invited to take up permanent residence in my Abba’s house.

The Living God–my eternal LORD and Shepherd–calls me to dwell with Him forever. To guarantee my residential rights, my LORD and Shepherd has put His Living, Eternal Spirit within me now as both my eternal house key and my spiritual GPS–God’s Presence Secured–forever.

Home. My dwelling place is now and forever with My LORD and Shepherd. I have His Spirit living within me now–assuring me that I am His…and He is mine. And that He is my home. The Spirit of my LORD and Shepherd dwelling within me assures me that one day I will be fully home. I have the absolute promise that when I die to this world I will enter into the fullness of my LORD and Shepherd’s unveiled, perfect, beautiful and loving presence.

No more nomad life. (In spite of the 12 moves Tim and I have made since 1980–and 9 others I made pre-marriage, if you want to include apartments and dorms!) No more nomad life.

Read, again, today’s verse:

…and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:6

I have a home–a dwelling place–now and forever. And, in my LORD and Shepherd, this has been true ever since I first accepted Jesus as my Savior. 

Do you know your eternal dwelling place? Do you know how to get Home to Abba–to the LORD and Shepherd? Now and eternally?

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me?”–John 14:6

You can accept His invitation now–to be His child, to set up residence with Him…and He with you now and forever. Acknowledge your need for a Savior. Acknowledge your need for the forgiveness of all of your sins. Acknowledge that you can not earn your way into Heaven as your Home with the Eternal God of all Creation.

He is the way. All of us need the blood of Jesus to mark our way Home. To mark us as God’s eternal children.

Invite Jesus to be your Savior. You will be welcomed Home by Him with love, forgiveness, freedom and joy! You will be given God’s Living, Eternal Spirit as your own eternal house key and spiritual GPS–God’s Presence Secured–forever.

Today is a good day to move. Tell someone about your decision to move in with Jesus–and have Him move in with you as your Savior, your LORD and your Shepherd.

As we each put our trust in the full, perfect and loving sacrifice of Jesus Christ–the Holy One, our dwelling place, our residence, our permanent, unchanging, eternal address is–and will always be in the house of our LORD and Shepherd forever!

It’s good to be home! I pray that we’ll be neighbors!

 In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
