And they that love his name shall dwell therein. I find just the thought of loving his name brings a dwelling place in experience that sets all things right. When the thoughts of this world come knocking on our door characterized by contempt, criticism and fear it is vital to recognize them. As we do recognize the unkind and unsettling thoughts that are looking to find a dwelling place within us we are reminded to love his name. As we do receive this gift of awareness and actually turn to love his name we find that we are back in our natural place of dwelling. In this natural place there comes the experience of peace and soundness and again perspective. No matter how things in the world appear it is also vital that there be some that abide in this place. For it is us that acknowledge this need true need that this world may eventually find its resting place in loving His Name.

“unsettling thoughts that are looking to find a dwelling place within us”
What a thought to consider….
We choose that which dwells within us. How many consciously exercise this choice?
Let us choose to be mindful, of which spirits we welcome in, for the unsettling variety don’t even exist until we lend them a body through which they can act.
What an awesome realization, that we have all overlooked to some degree, a formula for victory, that the Lord might have those through which He can act!
The choice is clear, let it be done.
Your words are very clear Joshua they carry the spirit of the verse. Thank you for playing your part in extending His Name.
