The Secret Place
Psalm 91 is one that promises us protection from all that comes against us. It’s also one that mentions where we are safe, and that’s in the secret place. When we see the word “secret”, what comes to mind? For me, I think of “quiet” or “confidential”. Webster’s tells us that it means “hidden”, “concealed” or “something kept from the knowledge of others”. We all should have a place where we can go and be with the Lord, just you and him. A secret place. In this secret place you can tell him anything and everything, he will listen. He knows you better than you know yourself, and this place is truly where complete safety and refuge are evident. What is said and what goes on in the secret place is between you and the Lord, it’s confidential, hidden, and concealed.
Psalm 91:1-2, is one of my favorite scriptures. In the secret place is where he reveals himself and becomes more and more real to me. At times in this place, he shows and speaks to us things that are not meant to be told to anyone else. Let’s admit it; we have to learn that some things from him are meant to be kept from the knowledge of others. You don’t have to be going around telling folks everything that the Father told you. Also, this place is where we can find complete rest, peace, joy, protection, and trust in the Lord. Knowing all of this, we can always declare of the Lord, “He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, Hallelujah and I am trusting in Him.”
PRAYER: There is a place where we can go, free from all harm, a place where we can find complete refuge, a place where you are our fortress, and that’s in the secret place. Help us to go there more and more Lord, to experience those times of intimacy that can only be between you and your child. In your name we pray, Amen.
