Dwelling In God’s Place

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”

Psalms 91: 1-2

Trusting in Christ fills the God vacuum that we all have. The Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us, and we are privileged to begin to know and understand the mind of God. This secret place should be our dwelling place, not merely a place to “stop over” when life gets rough. Let’s not think of a short meeting with Christ when we’re in desperate situations. Instead, let’s resolve to stay in His Word and in His dwelling all the time. As we pray and talk with God daily, we will grow comfortable in His presence. We will learn to look at life through His truth instead of our own. As we dwell in His place, we will eventually be delivered from the sinful behaviors that have plagued us for so long.

When the strong winds blow in our life, we can rest assured that God is our refuge and our fortress. Let us join the psalmist in putting our trust in God. He won’t let us down.

Thought:  I resolve today to find God’s secret place to dwell in-an intimate, moment-by-moment relationship with Him.
