Come Home by Worship Pastor, Lori Willey

Psalm 91:9-16 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”   Someone once asked me to describe my husband in one word.  From deep within me an immediate response came to my mind and words.  HOME – He is my home.  No matter where I am, what I am doing, what my circumstances are, I know everything will be ok because I have made my natural life’s home with him.  He keeps me safe, provides for our family, loves me, watches over me, and gives to me all the time.   In the same way, I have made Christ my HOME.  Everything starts and ends from this habitation.  I love the safety of being under his watchful eye.  I am at peace because His heart is to take care of me.  What a beautiful life.   Today, my thoughts are simple to communicate.  I encourage you that if you have already made Christ your HOME … stay close, enjoy His presence, and praise His name.  In Matthew 21 … Jesus makes his entry into the town and the crowd is crying Hosanna, Hosanna in the Highest.  His presence and their praise caused the whole city to ask, Who is this and What is going on?  Shout it loud that … Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!  Let's be a part of bringing a whole city to ask ... Who is this and What is going on?   If you don’t know Him … Invite Him in and make Him your habitation (HOME).  If you have wondered away from this safe place … Come HOME!  You are loved, wanted and always provided for in His presence.   Matthew 21:6-10  The disciples went and did exactly what Jesus told them to do. They led the donkey and colt out, laid some of their clothes on them, and Jesus mounted. Nearly all the people in the crowd threw their garments down on the road, giving him a royal welcome. Others cut branches from the trees and threw them down as a welcome mat. Crowds went ahead and crowds followed, all of them calling out, “Hosanna to David’s son!” “Blessed is he who comes in God’s name!” “Hosanna in highest heaven! “As he made his entrance into Jerusalem, the whole city was shaken. Unnerved, people were asking, “What’s going on here? Who is this?
