The word dwell is a verb meaning “to be” and “to live”. It also denotes the action of lingering, pondering or being motionless for a certain interval of time. In biblical terms, dwell is used to communicate the messages of abiding, remaining, or settling down.
When we come on to our mats, we have the opportunity to dwell. We can just be, with no pretenses or judgements. We can experience newness of life. Here we can ponder our thoughts, lingering in the peace that is produced from the movement of our bodies and the stillness of our minds. And we can abide and settle into God’s love for us.
In the Old Testament, God directed His people to build a holy sanctuary in His Honor where He could dwell among them (Exodus 25:8). For followers of Jesus, this dwelling place is not restricted by time or space. God’s presence-filled place that He longs to dwell with us in is accessible anytime, anywhere. It is a place where we can spend quality time with Him even in the frenzied world around us.
