It seems for most of my life I have prayed that He will keep me in the secret place of the most high, no matter what situation I have found myself in…I have prayed this over:
My loved ones…
I have taught Psalms 91 as my answer to freedom from anxiety, fear, you name it.
I know He is talking to the Israelites in this passage and there are those that say I am taking scripture out of context to make it mine.
What about when it’s mixed with faith? Over you and yours? That which belongs to you.
Here’s something to consider. What if I just made the words from Psalm 91 up based on my faith of who I know Jesus to be? Would God honor those words?
Sometimes we strain at gnats and swallow camels. (Yes, that is a scripture too)
Without faith its impossible to please God. Even when we are clumsily clanging around our room of faith, boldly claiming our inheritance, and maybe even be a little off on our stand…I believe Jesus is so personable and so delighted at our steps of blind faith that he will be there and perform for us what we believe him for…why?
Because He loves us so and loves it when we look to Him for that which we need and believe Him for.
He who [a]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].
In the New Covenant the Most Holy Place has been made open through the sacrifice of Jesus. He is the veil through which we pass to come to the most intimate holy place with God. When our trust is in the blood of Jesus the way to His presence and all His resources freely opens to us, and this happens as we trust in our heart.
Your heart is the real you. Your spirit. It is the doorway to the inner chambers of God.
That is the secret place!
When we enter into the secret place God reveals Jesus to us. He shows us what is ours, He ministers to us, He comforts us and gives us all the promises of Psalm 91.
To dwell in the secret place means to live in a place of continually drawing near to Jesus through constant communion. It is a place where you talk to Him in the morning, at night, and throughout the day, without the motivation of being recognized by people, only the pure desire to know Him.
It means to engage in fellowship with God and then never leave. Consistently coming before Him in sweet communion with our Lord, moment by moment.
This is what you and I were created for: to live in daily fellowship with the Father and to be empowered by His Spirit to bear His image to a lost and dying world.
We make walking in this place with God so complicated. It’s not!
He desires you, and only you. Your heart. You were created to walk and talk with him daily, the same as Adam and Eve….that was the original plan. When they sinned, the plan was formed for a redeemer (Jesus) to move sin out of the way and restore our relationship with God…
So now we have that access. Can you imagine.
Walking and talking to Him all day long? A relationship. Not rules and regulations.
How many Christians have this knowledge but don’t apply or make themselves aware of this privilege every single day?
No doubt about it. My many clients right now are seeking this new relationship. Even though, they have been a believer for years, now, when the fire is getting hotter, they realize they have not cultivated a real daily relationship with a very real Jesus…
Yes, it takes work and perseverance. Are you up for it?
We are in troubled and scary times. If we don’t apply these truths we will deal with anxiety and fear. And who knows when this onslaught of evil will stop…but if it does, we know that the end times will increase the fear.
Whenever I am overcome with the current happenings, I pray Psalm 91 and feel a release from fear and a boost of faith that God is in control…an assurance that my loved ones are covered and surrounded by the blood line of Jesus because of faith.
Just a note that there are not rules to this. Jesus is freedom to be our human selves…yet we walk in the spirit every minute. We are not weird looking or making weird gyrations to try to impress with our spirituality. Remember HE made you and knows you inside out. You can look very normal and sane and be at your most spiritual because HE dwells in you….
That, my friend, is the secret place!!
‘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]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never] He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.’
