Dwelling In God’s House


Dwelling in the house of the Lord is not only an afterlife experience. It begins in the here and now.
~ Lisa Blair

Our most valved longing should be our desire to seek after the Lord. All other desires are temporal. As we go through life putting God first, we will find all other things fall in place and no longer vie for our full attention.

When I think of peace and safety, I see myself in God’s presence, like David (the author of the Book of Psalms) persevering in worship while conducting God’s work as I go through my daily life. Our dwelling place is anywhere we find ourselves: home, the studio, school, work, store, restaurant, library, church, the laundromat, on the bus, on a train, in a plane, walking, or in the park, anywhere we are at the moment. They are all sacred places because we are God’s children.


I’ve learned that while I travel through my day, I can just as easily hold internal conversations with God as I do with self-talk that is often harmful, doubtful, and demeaning. Inserting God into everything I do provides clarity and comfort. I am dwelling in Him instead of the world.
I become strengthened through conversations with God, which at times include prayer, praise, worship. I find studying the Word teaches me His Holy language, provides discipline and gives new light and understanding to our conversations. I love that my thoughts are ensconced in His Word.

Our ultimate purpose is to be in service to the Lord in all that we do. We are here to learn, grow, and be God’s ambassadors on earth. We were born again to dwell in the house of the Lord. Where do you reside?
