23rd Psalm – Sat – 22-10-29

Have you ever visited someplace and wished you could live there? Maybe you’ve been to an all-inclusive resort on some Mexican beach or Caribbean island. Or maybe you’ve been to a lodge nestled in the mountains with a fantastic view. A nice home near a great golf course attracts some people. Others visit a city that has all the amenities and attractions, and wish they could afford to live there. For me, I’m more of a mountain person. I get bored at the beach. I hate the bustle of the city, though I appreciate some European cities more than those in the U.S. I also think Hong Kong is beautiful. But I’ll take the mountains over anything. 

We all want a safe, beautiful place to live with great weather and the people and things we enjoy nearby. A place to live the good life.

God’s care for us is described as living with him. Psalms 23:6 says, “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” (NIV)

Does the idea of dwelling in God’s house excite you? My guess is probably not. But the psalmist tells us that God cares for us in many ways. He provides for us, protects us and lavishes his blessing on us like a banquet. That’s what his house is like. God caring for us is the good life.
