THE SECRET PLACE: UNDER HIM.
The secret place of the Lord may not necessarily be a location. It’s a place where He can be found. How to find Him is through desire. Jesus said that when a man loves Him and keep His words, He said the whole of the Godhead will come an dwell with him.
John 14:23 KJV
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make OUR ABODE WITH HIM.
God has a secret place and man can dwell there. We will consider Psalms 91 a little.
Psalms 91:1 HE THAT DWELLETH IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
We must first understand that it is God secret place and if it is God’s secret place then is a place where Gods meet. What they communicate is heavenly and not earthly. They will speak not of low things. The word dwell there means to stay, and it is almost having the same word as to abide, to abide is to lodge. Now, to abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Now, let me make this very practical, try and stand in a place where your shadow is and then bring a small child to come under that your shadow, you’ll observe that the child will not be seen or reflect in your shadow, yours will cover or hide the child’s shadow, such as people will not know that another person is there in that shadow. So, we see this place saying under the shadow of the Almighty! Glory to Yahweh! This is achieved by staying in the secret place, the secret place to me is a place of fellowship and it is not in Mountains, yes you can go there but it is mostly in your heart. You may not be able to stay in Mountain forever because you may have some things to do here, but the place of fellowship is your heart, such as even as you eat the altar of fellowship is been raised continuously in your heart, then the word comes, it says shall abide, it is automatic because you’re dwelling in the secret place of the Most High, please note the word Most High, it’s very important.
One thing a man will see when he stays in the secret place is that, the shadow of the Almighty will engulf him and then he will say of the Lord, surely He is my refuge and my fortress…
Psalms 91:2 I WILL SAY OF THE LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
You can’t stay under His shadow and not have something to say, you must just say! You’ll testify of the Lord, that My God, in Him will I trust. Nothing of you is no longer seen but the Lord. Even if you try to move or do anything special to man, under that shadow, the person that will be seen is God, you’re hiding or abiding under His shadow.
I see these things like a story that align with one another. When you look at NatGeo wild, you’ll see some animals carrying or bearing their young ones under them. There is a secret in putting something under especially in animals, when a hen have her eggs she put it under herself and stay on it for 21days. There is a secret in been under, it allows for security and proper maturity. You can’t stay mature when you’re not under. Deliverances will happen to us when we remain under God.
Psalms 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
These we see of a truth because, you’ll not be seen but the Lord. One of the animals use to keep her young ones around her chest down, and so when any prey comes to take the young, she will fight for them. God is more. Note the word, SURELY, when you stay under, confidence will come, the reason we fear is because we are not under, imagine an animal that went on it own, then see a prey coming, he then begin to cry for help, but such is secured when under, you may not even notice the fight, you just know that something is happening.
I’m loving this scriptures. It says the that the shadow of the Lord will cover us as we stay in the secret place of the Most High.
Psalms 91:4 HE SHALL COVER THEE WITH HIS FEATHERS, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
I know a little about feathers, not that have dwell under any feather but, many times the heat or the warms in feathers is strong and can keep warm for an animal not to feel cold. The things we see are really taking about God.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse:
So it is clear, that God is intentional about His creation. So the feathers of an animal and the wings are strong. The wings of an eagle is enough to carry her young high up the sky without falling. The feathers is a symbol of total covering and care and the wings is a symbol of strength. Now God is doing that to us. Covering us and giving us strength as we stay under Him.
Psalms 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
I love that word, He shall cover thee with his feathers, even if we don’t know anything about feathers, we know something about some clothes we use to cover our body and gives us warms. God is covering us with His feathers, and under His wings will be our trust. I love this, it reads His truth shall be thy shield and buckler, this sounds the same in meaning just the handle part. This is use for protection. Truth delivers and can also protect. I’d love to continue but this will be long. Just to add a feel thought with His word:
Man is secured when he stays in the secret place. Alot may be happening in the world but as long as man stays under the shadow of the Almighty He is secured and lacks nothing good. Evil do not befall us when we stay on the path of the Lord, and in man’s dwelling no plague can come near, angels are there to keep charge for us. God is authoritative about His Word and He is sure of it. Even to dwell in the secret place is to set our love for God. The word dwell means to set. Prayers and burden are rolled out in the secret place. God gives hears to man. Satisfaction that comes with long life will be seen. We are in a time when the place we ought to stay most is in the secret place. I read in a place where the Lord was saying He will bring man to a place of fat pasture and feed them, if we believe the authority of God’s word our trust will stay on it. The secret place is a location is your heart, where the Lord can even abode. I encourage you to read this Psalms with a new light trusting the Lord. Remain under, you’ll see light that people are not seeing. When others are seeing the external part of God, you’re seeing the secret of God. In the secret place, secret are been made known, there are some words that are not allowed to go out through closed door meetings in our world. God open up secret to man in the secret place. Even when God Jesus speak in parable to people, His disciples asked Him the meaning as He told them in the secret. The secret place is also a place where you function in the capacity of God. God bless you.
