Psalm 91:1 (ESV): "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty."
The secret place is a shelter like no other. It provides a meeting place where God can minister to us. We find safety and peace as we dwell in the shadow of our God. He reminds us that He is always with us, even to the end of the age.
The psalmist here speaks of a shelter here, in the Hebrew the word means, secret place, covering or place of protection. Notice its not the place but the person that provides the shelter. That's why we are to dwell there, literally to remain, to settle...where? In the Lord! Jesus said in John 15:5 (ESV): "5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." We need to dwell, remain, or abide in the Lord for it's in Him that we find hope in all things.
Are you dwelling in the shelter of the Most High? Are you abiding in His shadow and protection? He is the only one to whom we can run and be safe. Get in the secret place and stay there. Communion with the Father and allow Him to speak truth into your life. Don't ever abide in anything else for apart from Him we can do NOTHING! Seek the Lord today as your one and only hope and let His presence bring you into a perfect place of peace.
Father, we thank You for the shelter we have in You! You are the Most High, there is none like You in all the world. Help us to abide in Your shadow, who is Your Son, Jesus. May we never abide in anyone or anything else. You are all we need Lord. Bring perfect peace into the hearts and minds of Your kids we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
