Living Today In My Future House With God Forever

I will live in Your tent forever and take refuge under the shelter of Your wings.  Selah
-Psalm 61:4

Living forever with God, beginning now.  Being sheltered under Gods care.  This is what I need.  And this is my ambition.

This is what I desire.  This is the one thing.  This is my request.  I want to abide in God.  

I want to dwell where God lives.  I want to go there and live there.  That is where my home is.

God's dwelling place is my refuge.  God's house is my safe-house.  His place is my bomb-shelter.

God's house is sanctuary for me.  That is where I always want to Go.  

God's house is my north-star.  His presence and place is where I am always wanting to go.

Wherever I am on earth, I point myself toward where God is.

My trust is in God.  God's care of me.  God watching over me.

I am protected from everything by God.  I trust in the secret place of God's wings.

God hides me and I am hidden in God.  I am under God's protective care.

In my misfortune, in my time of banishment, I ask God to let me live in the house of God.

People have rejected me.  People have not noticed me.  But God sees me.

I ask God to let me live in the house of God, now and forever.

In this forlorn place, this dry place, this desert place; I set my will to live with God now and forever.

I am making my loss into gain by declaring that living with God is my goal in life.

My desire is to find God's house, in my life time.  I want to go to God's living place and visit.  This is the journey that I am on.

My purpose in life is to find God and be protected by Him.  

I desire to worship God, with other people and by myself.  I desire to worship God inside a structure I can see and also in God's invisible structure.  

I desire to be a worshiper wherever I am.  

I will be restored to worship and prayer with people, in visible structures.  But today, in this distant, obscure and hidden place; I worship God.  I wholeheartedly commit my life to God, seeing my future in God's house forever.

The Two Disciples and The Two Donkeys

When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus gave two disciples a task.  He said to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter, you will find a donkey tied up and a colt with it. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anybody says anything to you, say that the Lord needs it.” He sent them off right away.  Now this happened to fulfill what the prophet said,  Say to Daughter Zion, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble and riding on a donkey, and on a colt the donkey’s offspring.”  The disciples went and did just as Jesus had ordered them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and laid their clothes on them. Then he sat on them.
-Matthew 21:1-7

On what we call Palm Sunday, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. But, he had two disciples get two donkeys: a mother donkey and her colt. Jesus rode the young male who had never been ridden before. In his carefulness and perhaps kindness towards these two donkeys, he had th…

God Will Always Bless Your Rest, by Graham Cooke

Graham Cooke:

"So in Genesis 2, by the seventh day, God completed his work which he had done and he rested on the 7th day from all his work he had done, and then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it he rested from all his work which God had created and made.

God will always bless your rest.

Always.

Since I learned rest, there has never been a time when God has not blessed that rest and honored that rest and sanctified my rest.

In other words, set aside peace for me; set aside rest for me.

So, for me, therefore, when God blesses something and sanctifies it and sets it apart; what that means is rest is always available as an absolute essential for life.

So, every circumstance you encounter already has rest in the issue.

No matter how hard, no matter how harsh, no matter how difficult, no matter how awful; every single circumstance has rest, because it's the one thing that God has blessed and sanctified, in terms of his relationship with you.

So, it'…

God's Secret, Hidden People

(The children) of Elam 1,254.  -Ezra 2:7

Do you feel hidden?

The name Elam means secret or hidden.  Do you feel like you are on the shelf, not being used by God?  Maybe you are part of God's secret agents.

God has people who are in secret.

I have this idea that God has His attention on secret people.   I believe that God has rewards for secret people coming.  You may feel on the shelf, but you are actually hidden for a special purpose.  God has you in reserve.

The number one thousand, two-hundred, and fifty-four; tells us God's plan for his hidden, secret, and in reserve children

One thousand speaks of recompense.

Recompense means that you will be compensated or made amends to, due to harm or loss you suffered. In Genesis 20:16 is the story of Abimelech recompensing Abraham and Sarah.

Two speaks of fellowship, partnership, and co-laboring (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

There are hidden people who have felt like they are "going it alone", who are about to be joined by someone.  …
