When we think of dwelling with someone, we often think of people that are close to us, for the most part those who love us and want to be around us. Of course there are other situations where we dwell with people that share a common goal or task, like those in the military or in a college dorm. They may not love us or want to around us, but they do so for the sake of the common goal.
The dwelling that is referred to in this verse is more like those who love us and want to be around us. It is written countless times that dwelling with and being with humankind is something God wants to do and in fact loves to do. Our part is to have a contrite, and humble heart and spirit to be able to receive this gift. May your spiritual pilgrimage prepare your heart and spirit to receive this indwelling of the Lord God!
