We are the Dwelling place of the LORD.

         Psalm 84: 1-2 , 4-5a, 11-12   How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!
         2      My Soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD, my heart and flesh sing
                 for joy to  the living God.
         4     Blessed are those who dwell in your house, ever singing your praise! Selah
         5     Blessed are those whose strength is in you.
         11   For the LORD God is a sun and shield, the LORD bestows favor and honor.
                No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
         12   O LORD of Hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!

We, our bodies, are the temple of the Holy Spirit. 
So, in the words, "How lovely is your dwelling place" it means me and you - we His people.  See:
                  I Corinthians 6:19-20 (ESV)   Or do you not know that
                              your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, 
                              whom you have from God?  You are not your own, 
                              for you were bought with a price.  So, glorify God 
                              in your body.
Am I living as one who appreciates all He is and has done.

Am I proactively giving God thanks in ALL things, and seeing that HE is indeed the giver of good things, favor, honor, my sun and my shield.  Am I longing for His courts, singing for joy - rejoicing in the LORD for the truth of who HE is and what HE has done in my life.

 I need to live and act and and have my being in the LORD and unto the LORD.
