The Secret Place

December 31, 2010 Donna New

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]….Because he has set his love upon Me therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness – trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never] Psalm 91:1, 14

Where is the secret place of the Most High? He doesn’t dwell in Temples made by human hands. He lives and moves over the earth but that isn’t very secret. He lives in heaven but right now we abide on earth. So I would guess that His secret place is my secret place, my closet, my most intimate place – my heart of hearts.

That’s where I can dwell and find safety and stability. I not only will be under His Shadow, which would strike fear in any enemy’s heart. I will be in His secret place where I can know Him. I can have a personal knowledge of His mercy, love and kindness. As He knows every tiny detail of me, the number of hairs on my head, I can begin to know details of Him…what breaks His heart, His tenderness for people, the wideness of the mercy that led Him to the cross. I love Him! I want to know Him.

I fall so short of dwelling in that secret place. I visit once in a while but I want to remain, abide, permanently plant myself there. There’s so much to know of Him and so much my heart needs to whisper in His ear. What better privilege in life is there?
