Psalm 91:1 “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (KJV).
“He that dwelleth, in the secret place of the most High”. The first part of this verse paints a beautiful picture for the Christian. To dwell in the secret place of the most High means that we have to be close to the Lord in order to benefit from this blessings and protection. When the Lord promises a blessing, He requires something from us. This is where faith comes into play. It is through our faith that keeps us close to the Father. The Lord promises us, that if we stay close to Him, we will be safe. But if we wander off, we open ourselves up to the dangers outside of His protection. What happens when a child wanders off from the protection of parents? The child becomes vulnerable to the dangers that lurk beyond.
When Christians wander off, they end up running back to the safety of the Lord. We all stumble and fall in our walk, but it is so wonderful to know that the Lord awaits our return with open arms, ready to receive us back under His protection. If we would only learn to stay put, stay in His will and live according to His commands. Wandering away from the secret place is not what the Lord wants for us, but we do learn lessons when we wander, we learn and grow closer to Him.
“Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” When we sit still under the protective shadow of the Lord Almighty, we are safe with him, nothing can happen to us, and no evil can attack us. The protection is a constant 24 hour around the clock protection. Nothing in this world can provide this type of protection. When the storms come, when the fiery darts are thrown, the Lord stretches out His wings and shields us. The closer we dwell with the Father, the more confident we will become.
Matthew 11:19 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (KJV).
