Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. (Psalm 90:1, NIV)

We might as well settle down in God now, for the day will come when only God will remain. Our bodies, our homes, our financial security, our jobs, all these house us but temporarily, and one day all of them will fail. We had better be “home in God” now. Then if we lose all else we still have all we ever really had. — Vance Havner

By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones. (Hebrews 11:22, NIV)

As a foreigner, Joseph had climbed to the pinnacle of power in Egypt. But he wanted the generations that followed to know that his hope was not in the grandeur of Egypt, or being buried in a large pyramid. Rather, it rested in the promises of God. — Walter A. Henrichsen

Abide in me, and I in you. (John 15:4, ESV)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6, ESV)
