Week 29: Even the Swallow

Week 29: Even the Swallow

Today’s Text: Psalm 84-86

Key Text: Psalm 84:3-4

“Even the swallow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young – a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house, they are ever praising you.”

We all need a place of rest, a place to recover, a place to be renewed.

People find it in many different locations.

Some find a place of real rest and recovery; others sadly find something less – a counterfeit – a place that might promise rest and renewal but really can’t in the long run.

The Psalmist understood, however, that the greatest place of rest was with God in God’s holy temple.

Even the smallest, most fragile of creatures, can rest easily there.

So, if you are tired, overwhelmed, in need of a truly safe place, somewhere where you can be renewed body, mind, and soul – why not find it with God?

Blessed are those who dwell in your house…

It’s an open invitation, to all who will accept.

Come. Rest.

Be still and know God is God.

Let that be enough.
