The Dwelling Place

What are you thinking about at this moment? What are you dwelling on right now?

Have you ever thought about this…?

Whatever you think about…whatever you dwell on…becomes bigger or larger to you.

For instance, when you look through the eye of a microscope at a tiny little piece of sand, it gets bigger. When you use a magnifying glass to look at a coin such as a penny, it also gets larger.

Therefore, what are you focusing on now? What are you looking at in your life? What is grabbing your attention during this time? It could be your current living situation. Perhaps, there are problems at your workplace. Maybe, the people around you are a distraction.

Whatever it is, it can be catching your attention or hindering you in your life.

Natural circumstances can temporarily steal your comfort, peace, and happiness in this world when you focus on them. Sometimes, you can give them the power to do so.

What is your dwelling place? Who is your refuge? Who is your dwelling place?

The same way we look at things in this natural world is the same way we should see things in the spiritual world at times.

Let us look at God’s word, and see what He has to say about this subject.

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8)

Notice what our Father says, “…meditate on it day and night.” By meditating on His word, we will be successful.

What are you meditating on now? What are you dwelling on at this moment? What is your dwelling place?

It should be God’s word and God Himself.

When we do what our Father tells us, He and His word will become bigger. Just like when we focus on natural circumstances, it becomes larger than life. All of the little things in life will actually appear much smaller when we take Him at His word and meditate on His word. Both He and His word will then become huge. By comparison, everything else will fade into the background.

God’s word puts issues, concerns, or problems into perspective. By looking at His word more carefully and closely on a daily basis, God takes His rightful place and everything else falls into its rightful place behind Him. Therefore, let us magnify God because He is the solution to every minor issue in this life.
