The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today August 5 2023 is ”Wherever You Are” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
As the summer months come to a close, we return from travels to the place we call home. And we refresh our understanding of God’s promise to be with us and to strengthen and guide us into the next season of life.
In the Old Testament, home for Israel was the Promised Land. God intended for the nations of the world to be drawn to His glory as revealed in Israel. But in this Church Age, home is not geographical. Christ has sent us out from Jerusalem into all the world. And He promises to be with us wherever we go (Matthew 28:19-20). In the patriarch Jacob’s life, home was Israel. Even when Jacob journeyed afar, God promised to bring him back to his home. For us, home is the Kingdom of God—the presence of Christ through His Spirit.
As you head into your fall routine, establish Christ and His Word as the center of your home life. Wherever you are, He is with you.
Help us, O Lord, our homes to make, Thy Holy Spirit’s dwelling place.
