Lord , who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?
He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the Lord ;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.
Psalms 15:1-5 NKJV
I want to dwell with the Lord.
My heart wants to live with God each and every day.
And I can!
Through Jesus’s sacrifice, my salvation is secure.
The Holy Spirit resides in me, giving me my heart’s desire of dwelling with the Lord.
Of course I still long to be physically present with Him, but that time will come.
In the interim, I look to scripture daily as my guide and direction for the fruit of a life surrendered before Him.
Therefore, I love these verses.
Words of guidance: walk uprightly, work righteousness, speak truth in my heart, be careful of my words, be cautious with my speech.
Words of comfort: “He who does these things shall never be moved.”
My physical place of residence has changed many times, but my spiritual dwelling with the Lord is secure.
John 10:28 NKJV — “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.”
To know my soul is safe in the hand of Jesus.
Thus I dwell in today as His bondservant, dead to my personal short-sighted dreams and alive in Christ and His plans for me.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You so much for Your Word. How great and wonderful it is to live daily for You and with You in my life! How great a comfort and assurance there is from knowing nothing on this earth can snatch my life from Your hand. Lord, I am Your humble servant, do with me as You see fit. My life was nothing before You and I know it is only through Your sacrifice that I find salvation and safety. This day is Yours. Please help me to walk in Your ways, keeping Your Word, living unto You in all things. Lord, please put a guard on my lips, that I might not sin against You. Please place a hedge of protection around my mind, that my thoughts might be only truth. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
