Our Dwelling Place


“Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations” (Psalm 90:1)

Moses called God His dwelling place. That is a significant statement considering Moses lived as an infant hidden in slaves’ quarters and in a basket in the Nile River, grew up in a palace but fled to the desert, and spent the last several decades of his life wandering in the wilderness. Sometimes we put down roots and believe we “own” a place; we grow attached to the land. But Moses, throughout his nomadic life, knew the truth: our real home is found only in Ma’on. This was true for Moses and his generation, and it is true more than 3,000 years later. It is true for the homeless and it is true for the mansion dweller. Hold fast to Ma’on: Our Dwelling Place; wherever you are, you will always be at home.
