1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
2 My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
3 Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O Lord of hosts,
my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise! Selah
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
in whose heart are the highways to Zion.
6 As they go through the Valley of Baca
they make it a place of springs;
the early rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength;
each one appears before God in Zion.
8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
9 Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed!
10 For a day in your courts is better
than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
12 O Lord of hosts,
blessed is the one who trusts in you!
How often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Jesus has told us!
1 John 4:16
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1 John 5:4
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.
What describes our Jesus?
1 John 4:8
God is love.
1 Corinthians 13:8
Love never ends.
Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God
God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us
Nothing in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Peter 5:10
God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Jesus has told us in Your Word, You are His Father and Our Father.
When two or more are gathered, You are there. When we call on Jesus, He is there. And in John's Gospel Chapters 16 and 17, Jesus prays for us.
When we seek You, Father God and Call upon Jesus - we always pray in Your Holy Spirit's Presence.
Even in the Book of Acts, Luke wrote of the prophets being long ago, You are as Vast as the Heavens and a Day to you is Thousands of Years. You are yesterday, today and tomorrow.
We turn again, that our sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of You God, our Lord, and that YOU will Jesus Christ. Heaven will receive us to wait for the time for restoring all the things. Knowing we live by every Word of God.
We lift up the people we love, the people You have given to us with Love and the Nations and world who call upon You. Knowing in the Power of Your Word, we are upheld. In Jesus the Lord. Amen.
