Psalm 37:3-4 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
One of my convictions from the beginning is that it is important to live in the place you minister. We own a house in Santa Maria, about 25 miles from Lompoc, and the thought of commuting was not appealing to me. So much ministry happens in the off hours. So last night as we were packing up things in our house I was praising god that He opened doors for us to "dwell in the land." We are still in awe at how God brought it about about. On December 1st we will begin to dwell in the land God has called us to. Even though we don’t live in The Village God has put us in a place where six families from the church live less than one mile from us! Talk about granting the desires of our heart! Not only do we have a house that exceeds our desires but we blessed with friends near by.
There are a lot of other powerful points in this passage and we are learning them day by day.
