Psalms: Nourishment for the Soul (part ten)
The presence of our God provides comfort, stability, peace, protection, and a host of other realities. For believers living during the time of Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem, the city and that marvelous House of God served as God’s special dwelling place. After all, God chose for His name to dwell in Jerusalem. One day He will reign again from Jerusalem, and the people of the world will travel to marvel at His splendor there. Until then, Christians understand that the presence of God today is not specially confined to a city or a temple like it once was. God’s presence—and with it His comfort, stability, peace, and protection—can be found wherever the believer goes, and especially wherever believers gather together. God is still our shelter.
