I Settle Down at Home In You

I don’t often publish the sensational on my site because it tends to encourage people to seek manifestations instead of seeking Jesus, but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in genuine expressions of the supernatural becoming normal parts of our lives. A few years ago, one of my new-found friends from New Zealand, John Beaumont, was caught up in a vision of God’s throne. While there he heard a song being sung out of God’s glory. He felt like it was something God wanted to share specifically with Ireland, but I think its application goes far beyond that. One of my friends in Ireland sent me a CD of the song and John’s sharing about how it came to be.

I first heard this song in Ireland a couple of years ago and I am taken by its content and by the path of simple humility God outlines for us to live in him. It’s content reflects much of the content of Philippians 2:5-11. The song is from God’s heart to his people. It his he who wants to ‘settle down at home in you,’ which is as awesome a commentary of John 14:2 as I’ve ever heard. Can you imagine that the God of the universe has made a way so that he can settle down and be at home in you and you in him. What amazing grace!

The last two lines is our response to God’s incredible work of grace. In response to him being at home in us, we have the opportunity to choose to take our place and reign in him. The song goes like this:

The Call

There is a path. There is a way;
An upward path, a narrow way to walk with me.
It’s simply named humility.

A humble heart, an open heart.
A trusting heart, a yielding heart
A loving heart, an eager heart.
A sweet and pure and gentle heart.

A heart like that here’s what I do.
I settle down at home in you.
A God of grace and glory too.
“I take my place and reign and in you.”
“I take my place and reign and in you.”

I have attached a link so you can hear the chorus. It is sung by a group of believers Ireland who were just learning the song, so the quality isn’t great, but I think you will enjoy it just the same.

Whether you hear it or not, let the reality sink in. This Father wants to settle down at home in you, and for you to be at home in him. What could say it any better?

    Wow Wayne. That is beautiful and what a message.

    The Father simply desiring to dwell in the humblest of vessels, "the least of these", and grant them the grace to sit in His big chair with Him, "the greatest of all".

    Awesome!
