For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits whose name is Holy. "I dwell in the high and holy place, with Him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble spirit to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."
Baby boomers are retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day, and many of them can afford second homes. For some, it's an investment, providing rental income or real estate value. Others enjoy the fun of living part time in a vacation-oriented area.
According to Isaiah 57, God has two addresses. He dwells in two places. His heavenly home is a high and holy place where He fills the highest heaven with His glory. His throne reigns reigns supreme in the center of Zion, ruling over the physical and spiritual realms of His creation.
But He also lives in the hearts of his humble people, and when He dwells within us, He revives us. His presence restores our souls. Hid abiding Spirit within us radiates enthusiasm, peace, joy, gentleness, and the very character of Christ.
We cannot lift ourselves to heaven to draw God down, but He comes willingly, gladly, and in grace. He gladly moves into our hearts and makes us His temple.
The great God, who is big enough to fill His mighty universe, is small enough to live within our hearts. We are the temples of God. He literally dwells in us. Hallelujah!
