Christ our Dwelling Place

You think Moses really demanded God's presence? Of course not! Being bold before God is not the same as pushing Him around. At first glance, it almost seems as Moses is trying to push Gold around.

LORD, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations – Ps. 90:1

You think Moses really demanded God's presence? Of course not! Being bold before God is not the same as pushing Him around. At first glance, it almost seems as Moses is trying to push Gold around. But what it really speaks of is Moses' deep relationship with God. He knew God would not abandon him. He spoke to God with a freedom many of us can't seem to find even in our relationships with one another, much less with God! Psalm 90 is the only one Moses ever penned himself and he gives a startling revelation: God's dwelling place has always been around, has always been available to us. Perhaps that’s why Jesus Christ would later say, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Mt. 11:28) .

Are there issues in your life that are causing unwanted burdens, Beloved? Then know that Jesus Christ is your dwelling place and He desires to give you rest. Notice that Jesus understands that restlessness leads to a feeling of being burdened, being weighed down. That He desires to exchange your burdens for His because his yoke is easy, His burden is light (Mt. 11: 30). In effect, Jesus is asking us to get His life into ours. What is the end result when we can accomplish this? Jesus Himself gives us the answer, "…and you will find rest for your souls" (Mt. 11:29). God wants you to have a lot more than just rest from the daily struggles of life. He wants your rest to be permanent. He wants every part of your life to feel at rest with Him.
