He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty (Ps. 91:1 KJV)
God has a secret place, and anyone who dwells in that place comes under the shadow of God Himself. God is responsible for the protection of anyone who comes to trust under His wings. The unrests and turmoil in the world are on the rise continually. Society’s problems are escalating in every direction. However, God has a hiding place for His people.
You are probably wondering where this hiding place is. Is it Jerusalem? Your Church building? Your secret place of prayer? The first and most astounding revelation about this secret place is that it is not a place! When many of us read this text, the figure of a house or fortress comes to mind. However, this place is not a geographical place. It is a Person. The 9th verse of the same Psalm 91 above gives us the first clue that this secret place is a Person, the LORD Himself.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation (Ps. 91:9 KJV)
The Psalmist said “Thou art my hiding place” (Ps. 32:7 KJV). After Jesus came, this hiding place is what is called “in Christ”. It is a spiritual position we occupy in God. You are in Christ, God’s secret place as a believer. The Apostle Paul says it so beautifully in Colossians 3:2 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God ( KJV).
You have a sure secret and hiding place in Christ from the storms of life!
Declare that “God is my hiding place, and there is no reason for me to be afraid or worry about life”.
APPLY THE WORD
You are safe in Christ. Outside of Him is only crisis after crisis until the final crisis in the lake of fire. However, God wants you to rest in Him. Allow the One who has you under His wings to take care of your enemies because you are under His roof!
Thank the Lord for the privilege of dwelling in His secret place.
