Dwelling Place

dwelling place judy bauer Sep 04, 2020

Dwelling Place 

Dwelling Place: home, refuge, residence, a place to restore and refuel. Sounds perfect! A place to sit down, to remain...count me in!

In our world sitting still is considered unproductive. We've got to be busy, busy, busy cause we're not a slacker...and on and on the mantra plays keeping us wound up tighter than an old clock.

I will say of the Lord, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'...If you make the Most High your dwelling - even the Lord, who is my refuge then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent."

Jeremiah would not have been considered a success by just about anyone. However, he was a success in the eyes of God. That makes all the difference.

Looking through the lens of the world's view he was a miserable failure. For 40 years he served as God's spokesman to Judah. When he spoke, no one listened. He continuously urged them to act on God's commands, but nobody moved one inch toward the things that mattered to God. He was poor, underwent hunger and deprivation in order to deliver the message God had given him...
