The Secret Place

secret place psalm 91
At times we all feel the need of a “getaway” from the responsibilities and pressures of everyday life! Yes, travel and vacations will bring some relief momentarily, but they will not fulfill the ongoing needs of our heart. We need a place to get away from the clamor and confusion that attacks our faith and encroaches on our stability. God has made just such a place for us to go, and it is within us; it is where God’s Spirit and our spirit unite and commune. We must continually remind ourselves of this Truth that Jesus is very close and that His Spirit resides inside our hearts. In Psalm 91, God calls this place “the secret place of the Most High”. It is a spiritual place, where the Lord offers safety, acceptance, understanding, love, and help to all who enter in. As we continue to choose and go to the Lord in the “secret place”, we will grow in our personal knowledge of His mercy, love and kindness. In trying times, we must remember to run to the secret place in our hearts, and we will gradually begin to trust and rely on Him more, knowing He will not leave us to struggle alone. When we sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, we are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds us, and the Stronghold that shelters us. He is our great Confidence, and will rescue us from every hidden trap of the enemy. Jesus promises if we call upon Him in the secret place, He will answer; be with us in trouble, deliver us from our spiritual enemy, satisfy us, and show us a better, more stable way to keep stepping forward, in the challenging world we live in.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no foe can withstand]” (Psalm 91:1).
