Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place....

"Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations."
Psalm 90:1

"...Ye are going to a country where the Sun of righteousness shines not so clear as in this kingdom; but if you would know where He whom your soul loves doth rest and where He feeds....wherever you be, go forth by the footsteps of the flock.....Ask for some of the Watchmen of the Lord's city who will tell you truly, and will not lie, where you shall find Him who your soul loves. Be not discouraged to go from this country to another part of the Lord's earth: "The earth is His and the fullness thereof," This is the Lord's house and we have no assurance to lie forever in one chamber, but must be content to remove from one corner of the Lord's house to another, resting in hope that when we come to the Lord's upper city, "Jerusalem that is above," we shall move no more because then we shall be at home. And go wherever you will if our Lord go with you, you are at home as long as He who is Israel's dwelling house is your home."
Samuel Rutherford's Letter 5

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
