Psalm 90:1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations
This psalm is a prayer of Moses to God, and he begins his prayer by saying: Lord thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations—that you are the place of stay for our spirit and have always been, and shall always be.
And Moses is right, but many of us, I dare say, most of us, do not understand or believe that God is the place of stay for our spirit which is the core of our being, the center of the interior, the essence of our being. The source of our energy which guides us daily into the unknown. We are to understand where we are and how we attain this place we called our dwelling place.
That this, that is about us, stays with God in his dwelling place, while it is yet with us—this gives us an essence, and existence that we are for the most part unaware of, but it is the guarantee of our eternal attachment to God. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. (Romans 8:39) Which is in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
Now the core, the center, the interior, the essence of our being is not found as a material thing in our human body—but it is ethereal, it cannot be seen by the human eye, but it is the life giving, animating principle in all of us, it is what gives life to our body—in fact it is life itself. This is your very existence here in this life. It came from somewhere and will forever be the core and source of our energy.
When we view people here in church who have died, the only thing that is missing from them is the animating principle, the ethereal about them. Their body looks just the same feather wise as it did while they walked upright and breathed the same air that we breathe, but now whatever it was that made then alive, is gone. So I pray you are understanding the principle on which I am speaking to you. The air we breathe is only a part that keep us going in animation. That core or center comes from somewhere, in other words it is your umbilical cord that attaches you to your father.
Moses says here in the text that that animating principle, that which is ethereal, that which we never did see with the natural eye has returned to its dwelling place. We often say at the funeral service “From dust thou are and unto dust shall thou return. But do we understand the principle or we just recite the words as it is written down. We need to sink ourselves deeper in the word of God to understand where our Lord brought us from and the here after…. It is no longer “if I perish I perish”. The old man dies so we can become new creatures in Christ.
