• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

‘At Home’ in the Lord

‘Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.’ Psalm 90:1 NKJV

David wrote: ‘Some of you were lost in the scorching desert, far from a town. You were hungry and thirsty and about to give up. You were in serious trouble, but you prayed to the Lord, and He rescued you. Right away He brought you to a town.’ (Psalm 107:4–7 CEV) Our souls need a place where we’re at rest; a place where we can lay down our worries, weariness, and frustrations. ‘My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.’ (Psalm 84:2 NIV) Recognising that our souls need a place to call home, Jesus said, ‘Live in Me, and let Me live in you.’ (John 15:4 TLB)

Notice, He doesn’t invite you as a visitor, but a family member enjoying all the benefits that go with it. ‘How do I enter into this dwelling place?’ you ask. If someone gave you a beautiful home, how would you take possession of it? You’d make sure the giver was serious, inspect the necessary paperwork, then move in and enjoy it. Is the Lord serious when He says to us, ‘Live in Me’? Yes. Is your name on the required Biblical ‘paperwork’? Yes. Then by an act of your faith, pack up and move in today. Poet ST Coleridge wrote, ‘Faith is an affirmation, and an act, that bids eternal truth be present fact.’ Turn your faith into ‘present fact’ and declare, ‘The Lord is now my permanent, secure dwelling place.’ Repeat it as often as needed. Claim the promise: ‘Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.’
