Title: God is Our Home
Text: Psalm 90: 1-2
A home is an indispensable need for any living thing and being. Regardless of form and type, it is where belongingness, security, abundance are met. If God is our home how could all the needs felt and experienced?

II. This world is not my home, I’m just passing through
Our second home is the earth. We are created by God so we came from God and God has given the opportunity for us to relish on the beauty of the earth he has designed. But we cannot dwell here forever, there will come a time that we will leave this place.
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. (Ecc 3:20). However, the totality of our own being will not cease in going to the dust. There is something more than the soil, more than the physical.
III. There’s no place like home.
Psa 127:1 If the LORD does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless; if the LORD does not protect the city, it does no good for the sentries to stand guard.
What’s in a home?
It is where we feel we belong.
We are accepted, there is acceptance.
Even when a person wanders and nobody accepts him/her there could be no other better place to be back than to a home where open arms can embrace him/her. Even when a person squanders all his/her resources and finds himself in scarcity and decides to go home, he will be fed accordingly with the riches available in the home.
It is where we exercise all the rights we have
As homeowners, we have the right to live in that home with all the amenities
It is where security abounds
Life is assured and it is protected.
There’s no place like home when it comes to caring and sense of concern, it is there where you will find everything.
A home that we yearned and for so long prepared for us.
It is a home incomparable to a human-made building.
It is where we belong to a parent that really cares for us, who loves us.
It is a home where life is assured and secured.
It is only in Gods’ hands.
God is our home here in this life and after. We should have the feeling of yearning to be with him always, anytime, everywhere and any situation.
