Psalm 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2- I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
In need of a secret place to hide from the troubles of this world? Seeking a refuge for your soul? Search no more for Jesus is it!
Jesus told us that in this world we will have trouble, but be of good cheer for He has overcome the world.
We were not left to be alone in this world. We have the “Comforter” called the Holy Spirit to help lead, guide and direct us in all things.
We also have an adversary called satan, the devil, the accuser of the brethern, etc who makes it his business to daily bring about trouble in our lives.
Yes, we do have an enemy and we must accept the fact that he may be allowed to do many things to us, but he can not touch our souls. Remember, Job? God said "do what you want, but do not touch his soul".
When the adversary comes, we have a shelter in a secret place to run to and hide.
This Secret Place where we can run to is in Christ Jesus. It is not some thing or some place outside of Christ, but a place in Christ Himself. HE IS THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. He is that place that has been prepared for us even before the foundation of the world by God.
This secret place is a mystery that is only known by those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The secret place is not a building, but a person called Christ Jesus. Yes, Jesus is that secret place that God prepared for us even before the foundation of the world.
1 Corinthians 2:10-But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets.
This secret place is a spiritual refuge, a spiritual covering or protection over us by God. A place where satan and all his evil can not come to. A hidden, secret place where only those who abide in Christ and He abide in them can go.
When Christ died, the curtain in the temple was torn in two. We all at that moment was given access to this secret place where God resides, through Christ Jesus. This access allows us to therefore come boldly to God's throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Perhaps you may find yourself today facing a troubled or difficult situation. You may have awoken to a terrible tragedy or a situation of extreme pain and difficulty.
Whatever it is that you find yourself having to deal with on today, there is a secret place you can run to and find hope and courage to go on in spite of what you have been left to deal with.
With God's help, prayer and meditation on His Word you "WILL" make it.
God's word promises you on today that He is that secret place where you can hide in the time of trouble, He is your strength in this your time of weakness and He is your very present help.
Saints, wherever you may be around the world, find a secret closet and call on the name of Jesus for He promises to hear and answer your prayers. Run to Him, for scripture declares inPsalm 46:1- God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Whoever goes to the Lord for safety, whoever remains under the protection of the almighty by abiding in Him, will receive the necessary tools of endurance and strength to overcome whatever situation you are dealing with.
Yes, the circumstances of life can and is often difficult, but you are not alone. God is with you always. He promises to never leave you nor forsake you, but to be with you always, even unto the end.
Jesus knows about everything we go through. As a matter of face, He experienced the same pain and suffering as we did, but to a greater level. Hebrews 2:18-Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.
As you venture out on today and when the troubles of this old world seems to be all around, remember that there is a “Secret Place” you can run to. He is a “Shelter” in life’s storms, a place of “Strength” in our weaknesses and a place of “Rest” for our weary souls.
When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord “WILL” life up a standard against Him. Therefore, be encouraged on today.
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. You are already victorious through Christ Jesus. Yes, it is Him who causes us to triump.
2 Corinthians 2:14- But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
Because God is our "Secret Place" in our time of trouble, I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
Oh God, I trust you on today for your Word is true! I praise your name O Lord, I glorify and magnify your name on today Lord for truly you are worthy of all my praises!
God bless you people of God and do tell the Lord thank you for being a very present help in the time of trouble. Thank Him for being a “Shelter” in life’s storm. Thank Him for indeed He is our “Secret, Hiding Place”.
HALLELUJAH!!!!! GLORY TO HIS NAME ON TODAY!!!
I love you all.
