He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
(Ps. 91:1 NKJ)
God has a secret place, and anyone who dwells or lives in that place will be under God’s protection and preservation. From the moment God made man, He always prepared a place for the man to live in.
The Garden of Eden was Adam’s dwelling place. God still has a dwelling place for us to live in today. The Garden He has placed us in is even more beautiful than the Garden of Eden, and far exceeds it.
In the same chapter above, the Psalmist gave us a remarkable insight into what this dwelling place is. He says in verse 9 “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place”(Ps. 91:9 NKJ).
The secret place turns out to not be a physical place such as a house or a city. It is a Person, and that is God Himself. God is the Dwelling Place.
This is the Dwelling Place we call, “in Christ!” The Apostle John says, ” . . . and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (1 Jn. 4:16 KJV)
Christ is our Dwelling Place through Whom we dwell in God (Col. 3:3.) You are dwelling right now in God’s Secret Place, which is Christ. You are entitled to be sheltered under the shadow of the Almighty God. Praise the Lord for our inheritance in Christ!
Think of two implications of abiding under the shadow of the Almighty. How can we practically dwell in God from what Apostle John said in 1 Jn. 4:16 above?
APPLY THE WORD
How does this truth apply to your life today? Should you be afraid under God’s shadow? Live today with this mindset.
Thank the Lord for giving you such a glorious House to live in! Pray that you will learn to live daily in God as you dwell in the Word and are guided by the Spirit.
