New Year's Eve

December 31, 2004
Psalm 90:1
“Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations”

INTRODUCTION: We come once again to the end of another year – 365 days have passed – the Year of our Lord 2004 – a year in which we have been blessed by God to serve Him, to be a witness, to experience His mercy and grace. What can be said concerning this past year? Possibly David summed it all up in the words of our text for this night: “Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling-place in all generations” {Psalm 90:1}

I.        The Lord our Dwelling place.

A. The Lord Almighty has been and is a refuge from the tempter and the destroyer.

B. He is a shelter from every storm.

II.     In All Generations.

A.          An Ancestral Home. Think of the repository of family traditions and memories and associations we’ve been permitted to experience this past year.

B.          Yet, in Christ we have a home more real than house filled with material things. The presence of Christ fills us and everything associated with Him. Think of those moments this past year when you have known of His presence in your life. Think of those times in which He was there yet we may not have known it… Only in eternity will everything be completely revealed.

CONCLUSION: Thus close out in just a few hours the year of our Lord 2004. In each year, in all generations the Lord Jesus has been our dwelling place. May He continue to sustain us from this generation to the next.
