God Will Dwell With Us
Read Revelation 21:3 (ESV)
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.”
- What do you think God is waiting for before He comes to dwell among us? Why doesn’t He live among us now?
- Why do you think the first thing pointed out to John about what the new Jerusalem is like is that God lives among the people?
- As you think about God today, where do you locate Him? How is this different from how it will be, according to John’s revelation of the new Jerusalem?
Father, I long to see You, to see You living among us, and to finally and fully be reunited with You! There are days when I’m suddenly stopped short at the notion that I cannot locate You. I’m searching desperately for You, wondering where You are. And there are other days when it seems my breath is no different from Yours, and brief moments when my eyes see things as You do. There are times You feel so close to me that I could not be convinced otherwise, and times You seem as far away as the farthest star of the sky. You are within my very body, I know. Reset my heart and mind on this truth. Amen.
