Most people quote Psalm 91:1 very often, but not many know its deep meaning. This psalm starts with a powerful statement about the protection of God. This implies that to fully enjoy God’s protection and have a vibrant relationship with him, you need to learn about the secret place.
There are constant mentions of the secret place in the Bible. However, few people know the secret place, how to get into it, and how to dwell in it. In this article, we’ll cover as much as possible of what you need to know about the secret place of the most high and how to dwell in it.
Where Is the Secret Place Located?
In Psalm 90:1, David portrays God in a literal way as our dwelling place. He also asks God to be his strong habitation which he can continually resort to in Psalm 71:3. This shows that the secret place isn’t a physical location but God Himself.
It isn’t something or a place outside God but a place in Him. God is that place that has been prepared for us. Psalm 31:20 also confirms that the secret place is synonymous with the ‘secret of thy presence.’
The secret place of the most high is where people who trust God can be closer to him. From the passages pointed out, it’s clear that dwelling in this secret place means living in constant contact with God’s presence.
It is putting your entire trust in God to guide, protect and help you daily as you face different challenges. Psalm 71:3 also shows that dwelling in the secret place isn’t a one-day affair but a continuous endeavor.
Who Can Dwell in the Secret Place?
You’re not alone if you’re wondering who can dwell in the secret place. Is it only for those with great faith or someone whose love walk is perfect? Everyone can access the secret place of God if they pay the price.
What’s the price? Hebrews 12:14 makes it clear that without holiness no man can see the Lord. It clearly points out that for one to dwell in the secret place of God, you must be holy and you must keep to the statutes and commandments of God.
In summary, sanctify yourself and be obedient to the word of God.
How to Enter the Secret Place
The way to the secret place of God is a deep relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ who is the only way to God. The second verse of Psalm 91 says, ‘I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!’” This shows that the way to enter the secret place of God is to have such confidence in God’s love for us that we can declare that we place our trust in him.
Three words summarize how to enter the secret place. Seek. Trust. Obey.
How Can I Dwell in the Secret Place?
