“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” (Psalm 91:1, NKJV)
The Psalmist in this verse lets us know that those who live in the “secret place” or, in continual fellowship with God, will have God’s eternal protection and covering in their lives. The point of the Psalmist is to get us to understand the importance and benefit of remaining in continuous communion with God.
To “abide” under God’s shadow requires us to seek Him, commune with Him, and follow Him every day of our lives. Fellowship and communion with God cannot be just a once or twice a weak occurrence. This is more than a Sunday morning event. We must pursue a continual, everlasting fellowship with Him. We must not just “visit” with Him, but, as the Psalmist puts it, “dwell” or stay with Him. Only then can we be assured of the divine, abiding protection of His shadow or covering.
1. Are you abiding with/in God or just “visiting” Him?
2. Do you call upon and spend time with God on a daily basis or just when you have a need?
3. Do you feel even at this very moment the assurance of the protective covering of God?
Make sure you “stay,” “dwell,” “live” in continual and permanent communion with God. In doing so, you have the promise of His abiding protection and covering in and over your life. Make it a priority to live your life, IN THE SECRET PLACE!
