The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. —Deuteronomy 34:27

            Truly, if God is our dwelling place then we have an eternal dwelling place because He is eternal.  All other dwellings are temporary.  The homes we live in are only temporary.  Even our bodies are only temporary dwelling places— “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands” (Deuteronomy 34:27).  Yes, we have an eternal dwelling place!

            We can take great comfort now in knowing that for those who know Jesus and follow Him “underneath are the everlasting arms” of our eternal God!  How much safer could we possibly be? 

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. —Romans 8:37-39

            Fellow follower of Jesus take great comfort in knowing you are safe and secure for all eternity.  We are solidly held by Him who is eternal and can never be moved or overcome.  We are overcomers in Him—

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. —I John 5:1-5

Dear Father I am so grateful that You have made me eternally safe in Jesus.  Out of my gratitude may I truly live for You and serve You by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.  So be it!
