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.
David found a secret to becoming a man after God's own heart. He discovered a dwelling place in Him. He took the time and effort needed to go there and abide.
Listen to his words in Psalm 91: "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 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."
David didn't keep the treasure he discovered to himself. He gives us the inside track to his discovery. The mystery? Dwell, or take up...
