God’s Lovely Dwelling Place









I wonder what image was in the Psalmist mind, when writing the words, “How Lovely is your dwelling place. O Lord Most High. ” Psalm 84:1

Was the psalm writer looking at a field of flowers, covering the hillside, marveling at the intricate work of art each petal is?






Perhaps thoughts turned from the carved wooden images of flowers in the sanctuary, to  the way God sprinkled flowers throughout the earth, for all to enjoy.





Indeed, “How lovely is God’s dwelling place,”  Created for us to rejoice in.  For God, who walks beside us,  has never been confined simply  to churches. But  continues to be revealed, in the good gifts of creation . . .  Gifts to celebrate and be grateful for.  Gifts to cherish and to protect, so those who come after us, can also celebrate these good gifts of God to us.

“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,
    the world, and those who live in it.”  Psalm 24:1

  1. I have always seen that Psalm as being about the Temple or tabernacle, because of what’s in the rest of the verses. But in thinking about it some more, I remember that the tabernacle and the Temple were made with God’s specifications down to the last detail. (Like the flowers He created!) The builders made it exactly as He had instructed, which was why it was so beautiful. And I believe God sees true beauty in obedient servants, whatever things large or small we do to serve Him. HE is what makes any place beautiful, and when we are in the center of His will, we are, too. ❤

  2. Wow I like this message.
    You see I think if we meditate on this powerful scripture we get a glimpse too .
    I recall Jacob making a similar remark Gen 28:17
    New Living Translation
    But he was also afraid and said, “What an awesome place this is! It is none other than the house of God, the very gateway to heaven!”

    I think there are moments when you can sense the presence or His aura but you feel like its just a glimpse, then you think how excellent is actually His dwelling place.
    The answer we will be looking for is, “There is more from where its coming from”
    Great work!
