O that Christ may make His home

  O that Christ may make His home my heart,
Spread Himself in every part!
Saturate and life impart!
That with all saints, I may apprehend
All the vast dimensions of my loving Christ.
Father God, forgive me if I groan;
For so long I’ve been on a plateau.
Now with tears, I bow my knees and pray
By Your Spirit make my spirit strong today.
As I came this morning to Your word
With no strength to even read a verse;
Yet my plea, is “Lord, I do need You!”
How You strengthen me, Your power within to prove.
I myself was losing heart each day;
Then the Lord brought some saints my own way;
I alone could not Thee apprehend
But with all the saints You now my joy have been.
All these years I’ve come the church to know,
Yet O Lord, there’re things I can’t let go;
Yet within me there is an “Amen”;
O now joy I never knew in me’s flowin’.

Lord, with the vastness of this universe , yet by your grace and mercy You have chosen man to be Your dwelling place, Your tabernacle.. Thank You.

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and reality.

With housing prices these days it's good the Lord is making His home.


He's making His home in our hearts—our being (mind emotion will and conscience)—as in every room and avenue of our person.

Why? That we can know, WITH all the saints who are also allowing God to permeate their heart, who He is — the breadth, length, height, DEPTH of God.

If we want to know God in a deep way, it starts with knowing God in your own heart. Only then are we given the privilege to see God in the hearts of other men—other saints in His Body. Your individual pursuit for the corporate Christ is NEVER in vain; don't ever let the enemy tell you otherwise—redeem the time!
