PSALM 132:13-15

13. For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation.

14. This is My resting place for ever says the Lord; here will I dwell, for I have desired it.

15. I will surely and abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her poor with bread. Amp.

Luke 1:69 And He has raised up a Horn of salvation (that is a mighty and valiant Helper, the Author of salvation) for us in the house of David His servant.

This is talking about Jesus. God will bring redemption and deliverance to His people (vs.68) through the line of David through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the true resting place. We which do believe are part of His body and receive all of His wonderful attributes. We can also become His habitation.

John 14:23 Jesus answered, If, a person really loves Me, he will keep My Word – obey My teaching; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.

It is all about love. Many churches are filled with people who want to go to heaven. They just want to believe that if they are a basically good citizen and do not break any laws, go to church once a week and serve self the rest of the week, God will be impressed and let them in heaven. They will be surprised.

John 6:44 No one is able to come to Me unless the Father Who sent Me attracts and draws him and gives him the desire to come to Me…

The Father knows who will be false to Him. He sees down deep in our heart and already knows us. We still are accountable for our ways; He just knows them before we do. He draws us with His great love, which is divinely irresistible.

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. KJV

When you taste of His love and goodness, nothing else can compare. His Word is so satisfying unlike anything this world can offer. It always leaves you wanting more of Him. To have Him come and dwell in our heart is the best gift there is. He is always there to guide and protect. He is there to provide all the love that you need from His never-ending supply. A ticket to heaven is just not enough for any believer, He wants heaven here and now! And that is what we get when they come to dwell inside of us.

John 4:23 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; For the Father is seeking just such people as these His worshippers. Amp.

We are called to be His worshippers. We must let Him mold us into what He desires us to be. We must be in the Spirit and not in the flesh. We must worship Him in Truth. We must mean the words that we are singing to Him. He will not accept a lie. If we say we love Him first then He must be first, etc.

We are a blessing to Him in our worship. But not near as the blessing that He is to us in our worship. He will manifest Himself in such wonderful ways! Yes, then we can truly taste and see that the Lord is more than good!
