True Safety Found in the Secret Place

Christian during prayer

The secret place is a place where we have intimacy and communion with God. Every believer should have a secret place with God. 

God wants us to dwell in his secret place because it will keep us in his protection. He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of protection of the almighty (Psalm 91:1). When the shadow of God is present, he is also present and won’t permit any harm to anyone who abides in his presence.

Prayer and intimacy with God keep us in his shadow. Whoever walks in the shadow of God walks with him because he is present. 

Relationship with God is a hiding place for whoever takes refuge in him. It’s like a building with strong walls. It’s cannot be broken through. Satan and his cohorts will try to no avail. God's presence is also a hiding place from life's storms and difficulties. Hard times may blow, but his protection and safety secure us from being hurt (Psalm 32:7).

The secret place for every believer is like chicks under the protective covering of the feather of the mother hen. The hawks (enemies) try to hurt them to no avail. God bless his people with gifts. The gifts can be stolen because Satan and his demons steal (John 10:10). But the gifts of the children of God are protected when they safely abide in the protective presence of God (Psalm 36:7).

The secret place is not all but only for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. No one can have intimacy with God without Christ (John 14:6). It’s for those who abide in love with God and their fellow human.
