God Is Our Dwelling Place

As we begin the new year,
God will give us 365 days broken into 8,760 hours.
Of these hours, 2,920 will be spent in sleep,
and about the same number at work.
An equal number has been given to us to spend in reverent preparation
for the moment when days and years shall cease and time shall be no more.
What prayer would be more spiritually appropriate than that of Moses,
the man of God:

"So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
- Psalm 90:12 -

Of all persons the Christian should be best prepared for whatever the New Year brings.
The Christian is more than a student, more than a philosopher.
He is a believer, and the object of his faith makes the difference, the mighty difference.
The Christian can face tomorrow cheerful and unafraid
because yesterday he turned his feet into the ways of peace
and today he lives in God.
The Christian who has made God his dwelling place
will always have a safe habitation.
- Tozer On Christian Leadership -


"LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world,
even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God."
- Psalm 90:1-2 -

Have a blessed Lord's Day!

Even as a Christian I struggle with facing those difficult tomorrows. This is a wonderful post and reminder that as believers we really have nothing to fear.
