His Dwelling Place (Psalm 84:1)

“How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” (Psalm 84:1)

“Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.” (v4)

On Sundays around the world, people gather in church buildings and homes worshiping the Lord. (more…)
