God is my Home

Psalm 90:1-3

Our eternal home is God.

Moses, the author of this psalm writes this sentence as one of the very few people in the Bible who many of us would say spend most of his life as ‘homeless.’ I understand Moses a little, we have moved home more than 16 times the last four years. Home is a comfortable feeling.

Moses and the Israelites had a home, but that was a home of bondage (in Egypt). So, in faith, they left their homes and wondered for more than forty years in the desert. Home was not comfortable, there was dust and noise and desert storms that battered their tents frequently. It was anything but home to our understanding. Still, he calls God his dwelling place, his home and refuge. For he has understood that in God we can never be unhoused, neither can anyone take us out of his hands (John 10:29).

( See Deuteronomy 33:27, Ezekiel 11:16, Ephesians 3:15-17)
