The Secret Place

In Psalm 91, there is a litany of amazing promises.  Many renowned scholars believe that Psalm 91 has probably the most protective broad-scope promises found anywhere in Scripture.  Psalm 91 in summary says if you and I will take some care as to where we place ourselves, then God will unleash 18 divine protections – protections no one wants to live without or wants their family to live without.
But it is all conditional on verse one.  The protections and benefits all flow from a decision of placement that you and I make in our lives. So let me ask…..where have you been “dwelling or living?  Where have you placed yourself in proximity to God?  Where are you spending your time?
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91:1).  The Amplified says,  “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 want to place myself in the secret place with God.  I want to purposefully choose to spend time with Him. In this day and time, we simply cannot afford to not have His covering.  I want to be under His shadow and protection.
