The Father’s Blessing: True Refreshment
“You’re all I want in heaven! You’re all I want on earth! When my skin sags and my bones get brittle, GOD is rock-firm and faithful. I’m in the very presence of God— oh, how refreshing it is! I’ve made Lord GOD my home. God, I’m telling the world what you do!”Psalm 73:25; 28 MSG
Can I honestly say, “You’re all I want in heaven and on earth.” I would tend to agree with the heaven part…but what about “all I want on earth?”
When I fully acknowledge and recognize that I am totally dependent on God—right now—and when “my skin sags and my bones get brittle,” then I will totally agree with the Psalmist, “You are all I want. Period.”
He is GOD. I am not.
He is rock-firm and faithful. I am not.
He invites me to enjoy His presence now…and now…and now…and now. Here on earth and forever in heaven. So whether I am here or have moved to heaven, the Lord God IS my home.
It doesn’t matter where I am living as long as I know that God IS my home. Location plays no part in my residence, as my life is in Him alone. And therefore, I am refreshed.
Refreshed in my temporary home.
Refreshed in my forever home.
And as I’m continually refreshed living in His presence, I want all around me to enjoy His rock-firm, faithful presence too. (Yes, even in the earthly storms of life.)
So I shout it from the depths of my soul so your soul would respond to His rock-firm, faithfulness. Real living! Such refreshment!
