Home Is Where The Heart Is

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. You turn man back to dust; and say to the children of men, return. For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
Psalm 90:1-4

Isn’t it great that you can have place that you call home? Some people say that home is where the heart is while others say that home is wherever they can hang their hat. This psalm was written by Moses. Remember, Pharaoh wanted to kill every boy below the age of two but Moses was rescued from the river by Pharaoh’s daughter and grew up in opulence for forty years—but he wasn’t home. At age 40 he fled to Midian and was there for forty years, married a wife and had children—but he wasn’t home yet. At the age of 80 he led the children of Israel out of Egypt’s bondage and for forty more years led them through the wilderness—but he wasn’t home yet. The only dwelling place that he had while on this earth was the Lord Himself.

He recognized the security of dwelling totally in God and God alone. He knew that God alone was eternal and if he could find a safe place to pass through this life until he finally got home it was in God. Before the earth was formed, or the stars were put in place, or the sun and moon were spoken into existence—God was and is—that is security.

You and I may have a good place to call home and we may have a good bed to sleep on at night, but we are not really home yet. When we get to our eternal home a thousand years with the Lord will seem like a day or as Moses put it, “like a watch in the night.”

You may get the idea that I like the old songs and I do because they speak to my heart and mind so here is a verse of another: “There’s a land that is fairer than day, and by faith I can see it afar; for the Father waits over the way, to prepare us a dwelling place there.” We have a home that waiting for us so let us continue to be faithful to our Lord and His Word. For some of us our dwelling place may be almost ready to move in. Don’t despair, it will be more beautiful than anything that we can ever possess here. Keep looking up and don’t give up. Have a blessed day, amen.
