I remember when I was a kid and making all kinds of new friends. I grew up in a multi-racial urban neighborhood with kids everywhere. I loved to hang out at my friends’ houses. One of the first things my friend would always ask me was “Hey,wanna see my room?”
Your room in your parents house is a place of wonder, safety, rest and peace. But, best of all it says that you belong… its your “place”. In John 14:2 Jesus promised his followers that they would have a room in Dad’s house. That promise is for all of us who will receive it. There is a place made just for you in His house.
But, today my heart is catching fire by meditating on Psalm 84. Take a few minutes to read it from “The Message”. Let your heart dance to the worship rhythm of these phrases from that Psalm ” What a beautiful home, God-of-the-Angel-Armies! I’ve always longed to live in a place like this, Always dreamed of a room in your house, where I could sing for joy to God-alive! Birds find nooks and crannies in your house, sparrows and swallows make nests there. They lay their eggs and raise their young, singing their songs in the place where we worship. God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God!How blessed they are to live and sing there!
There is a dream in everyone of our hearts to have a room in God’s house!! Can’t wait to say to you one day, “Hey, wanna see my room?”
