Dwell In God’s House

Psalmists love to use the metaphor of dwelling in God’s house.

I wonder what they meant.

Preachers, priests, church leaders, they all seem to interpret that as being in (their) church buildings.

At the time the psalms were written, there were no church buildings.

I am pondering this in a spiritual sense. Dwelling with God. Both Old and New Testaments have phrases about living in God and God living in us.

What if they were talking about living each moment as if we were with God? Like an intimate relationship? Like when I have options there is something or someone inside me that guides me toward the proper decision or action?
