God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. -John 4:24
Lord, you have been our home since the beginning. -Psalm 90:1
I was recently reminded that God is not far away or up there, but rather as close to us as our home. Moses in his prayer in Psalm 90 reminds us that God is our home and has been since the beginning. We find comfort in the roof and four walls of our homes. Familiar furniture, special keepsakes and lasting memories are some of the things that make my house feel like home. What makes your house feel like home?
Remember that God is with us in the presence of the Holy Spirit anytime and anywhere. God can be equally familiar to us, like our homes. Max Lucado says it well, "with time you can learn to go for nourishment, where to hide for protection, where to turn for guidance. Just as your earthly house is a place of refuge, so God's house is a place of peace.
As you spend time in your home this week, think about the ways that you can invite God into every aspect of your life. Put your trust in God knowing that he goes before, stands beside you and walks behind you.
