What Happens In The Secret Place

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  Psalm 91:1

 ‘Secret place’ in Hebrew is mistar ~ ‘a concealed place where treasures are stored.’  This place is actually ‘in Christ’ and the treasure ‘is Christ’.

The secret of my hiding place is that there is spiritual power there.  It is resident in Christ and when I am near Him, He imparts it to me.  I rest in my spirit though I’m physically stressed.  I’m strong like steel even though people around me expect me to break.  Though all hell unravels, I am of sound mind and possess unshakeable calm. You have been a place of safety for the poor and need in times of trouble. Brutal enemies pounded us like a heavy rain but you were our shelter.  Isaiah 25:4

So, why do I temporarily leave this place?  Because life throws me a curve I didn’t anticipate and I focus on my circumstances.  Or, a faithless person talks me out of my peace.  I cave to their flawed logic and sink like Peter in waters way over my head.

For every child of God, there is a secure fortress.  There is no storm too furious.  No foe too mighty.  No tragedy too hopeless.  No grief too consuming.  I am a child who runs home continually, reminding my enemy all the way ~ “Wait till I tell my Father.” He doesn’t like that, by the way.

I’m going to believe you.  Every foe today is already defeated.  They are very well aware of their end and just pretend to wield a power that isn’t theirs.  I’m not fooled and holy laughter erupts from my spirit.  In Jesus’ name, Amen
