Monday, December 16, 2019


Read Psalm 91:1-16

1. 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.

3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

MEMORISE: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91:1)


The statement, ‘He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty’ (Psa. 91:1), is somewhat conditional. It implies that if one dwells in the secret place of God, that is in Christ Jesus, one would abide under His shadow, thus escaping the onslaughts of the archenemy of our soul. But if anyone chooses to leave from under God’s shadow, he/she should make do with whatever becomes of him/her in the hands of God’s, and our own enemy.

Dinah, Israel’s only daughter, should have stayed within the confines of her father’s household, but she longed to, and ‘went out to see the daughters of the land’ (Gen. 34:1). She went out to ‘see’ what God and his father didn’t want her to see, and she ended up having a very bitter experience in the hands of Shechem, the son of Hamor, that she regretted all her life (vv. 2ff). In like manner, Israel kept enjoying God’s blessings as long as, and as much as they stayed within the confines of His holy Law. They were sold off to exile when they recalcitrantly veered off.

Please, don’t stray away from the shadow of the Most High. The result has always been disastrous. Ask Adam. However, the only way to stay in God’s secret place is to first accept the Lordship of Jesus, and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Also, the readiness must be there to obey God’s instructions by His Spirit (Rom. 8:14ff). Regularly fellowship with Him in His Word and prayer. We should also cherish the fellowship of His people (Heb. 10:25). Don’t quit God’s secret place!


1. Lord, give me a better understanding of Your secret place, so that I can be there all the days of my life.

2. Pray for victory over everything trying to pull you away from under the shadow of the Most High.

3. Lord, powerfully visit ministers of God who have veered off Your secret place to seek refuge with satanic powers, and bring them back to Your abode.
