OUR HOME FOREVER
Psalm 90:1-2 (The Message)
A Prayer of Moses, Man of God
1-2 God, it seems you've been our home forever; long before the mountains were born,
Long before you brought earth itself to birth,
from "once upon a time" to "kingdom come"—you are God.
From the days of eternity which the human mind simply CANNOT FATHOM we were "In Christ." I encourage you to meditate upon the deep meaning of this as you open your heart to the revelations of the Holy Spirit. The plan of redemption is to OPEN OUR BLIND EYES to see our eternal inheritance in Christ. Paul discusses this especially in Ephesians 1-3. Spend some time prayerfully going over these chapters. They are REALLY POWERFUL--more than you could ever begin to imagine.
The reason that NOTHING of this earth, no matter how good it may be, will ever fully satisfy us is that OUR PRIMARY HOME is ever and always shall be in God and in God alone!!! Nothing else will suffice but that. The very best things that this world can offer us are temporary and sooner or later will pass away. Our homes, possessions, and everything else are ONLY temporary.
How long will it take us to really learn this simple truth? All of the sufferings of this present life point us in the direction of OUR HOME IN GOD. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth to bring this eternal home to us in a very tangible way (John 1:14). In the gift of Jesus as a member of the human family the Kingdom of God broke into human history in the absolutely supreme way. Now by faith we are to enter the fullness of that Kingdom, live it out, rejoice in it, and never depart from it.
