Our Everlasting Home

“ Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. “

Psalm 90 : 1-2

One cool morning , I woke up and became teary-eyed as I remember my departed parents. How I really missed them , wishing they were still by my side. To find comfort, I turn on to the pages of the Scripture and Psalm chapter 90 was opened before me.

This passage reveals the brevity of one’s earthly life, and the importance of applying wisdom in everyday life, and numbering our days wisely. Above everything else, it reminds us of our God, as our perfect eternal home.

God alone can provide us a permanent home, for He alone is eternal. Our earthly home provided by our parents or spouse is bound to fade away one day. We should never rest our security in our earthly home. We should accept as one of the loneliest realities of life that our earthly home is just temporary and will not always be with us.

But as believers in Christ, we should be comforted that our loving Heavenly Father provides us a home that will never leave, a home which is meant for eternity. My earthly home has now gone with the passing away of my parents, even the physical home which used to be an abode of a happy family and which shelters me for about fifity one years has also gone when it was burned down last June. All that remains with me are the precious memories it brought me, but as a believer in Christ, I am blessed to be belong to a heavenly home which will never fade away. This home will never ever leave me nor will it be destroyed . This home is destined for eternity.

This is indeed one of the greatest blessings of being a child of GOD. Receive the Lord JesusCHRIST now into your heart and surrender your life to Him completely and you will be a partaker of His everlasting home.
