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?
Let’s start with our reflection by calculating your own death’s clock.

II. This world is not my home, I’m just passing through
Our second home is the earth
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Ecc 3:20
III. There’s no place like home.
Our first home is God
Jer 9:19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded because we have forsaken the land because our dwellings have cast us out.
Jer 9:23 The LORD says, “The wise should not boast of their wisdom, nor the strong of their strength, nor the rich of their wealth.
Jer 9:24 If any want to boast, they should boast that they know and understand me, because my love is constant, and I do what is just and right. These are the things that please me. I, the LORD, have spoken.”
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.
