In Psalm 90 Moses pens these words.
Lord thou has been our dwelling place in all generations.
Then our savior comes behind him to declare "I go to prepare a place for you", ...a dwelling place. This station that we now occupy is but temporary and fleeting like the grass which springs up and dies off. How then do we get to the place prepared for us? Jesus said I AM the way the truth and the life which makes it all the more easier because with that we do have to look for or discover the route. There is no need for Google Maps or WAZE all we have to do is follow Christ by the way that we live since it is because of Him that we are made alive AGAIN and He has declared that He will never leave us.
As we go back into the sanctuary at Providence we praise God that while we have been apart from each other we have NEVER been away from Him. While have been not been in contact with each other for a good long time we have NEVER been disconnected from Him. Now we can come back in the same space and CONTINUE to do together what we have not ceased from doing apart for some 16 months.
Lord thou Has been our dwelling place.
