The secret place of the Most High is a place of retreat in His presence. It is a place
of being alone with God. It is not a place of commonness, rather it is a place of
secrecy as not every body is able to access and dwell in such a place with Him. The
secret place of the Most High God is a place of serious and intense seeking of the
Almighty; It is not for those who are laid back and cannot wait upon Him; rather it is a place of contending for the faith which was once delivered unto us saints ( Jude
3 ).
Psalm 91:1 KJV
[1] He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty.
If we want God’s cover and protection, we must learn to access God and dwell in His secret place. For the avoidance of doubt, therefore, we will be looking at a few
areas that constitute dwelling in His secret place and the benefits that accrue
Dwelling in His secret place may mean any of the following:
1. The place of Prayer: Prayer is one thing that a Christian who wants to have
divine cover from evil cannot do without. It is commonly said to be the master key through which all doors of impossibilities are unlocked. I have personally seen
prayer turn around situations. The scriptures are also replete with such examples.
A case in point is that of Peter who was held in prison by Herod waiting to be
executed after Easter. As the church fervently prayed, he was released divinely.
( Acts 12: 1-16 )
The bible says in the book of James; James 5:16 KJV
[16] Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
2. The place of meditation on God’s word and obedience: A Christian who does not
habitually digest God’s word is akin to a prayer less Christian ( Jos 1:8 ). The result
therefore is that there will be no power in his life and ministry. 3. The place of righteousness: This is a state of having a sanctified heart, seeking
the things which are above and not the things beneath. In this state, God stands
for you as a result of your submission to Him. The bible says that the kingdom of
God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost
( Romans 14:17 ).
4. The Name of the Lord: This is a very powerful way of dwelling in His presence. The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it and is safe.
( Prov. 18:10 ). Nothing can ever harm you if you hibernate under the name of the
Lord. That name is too powerful. David used that name to defeat Goliath. What
about you?
Though the name of the Lord is very powerful, scripture says that He has magnified
his word above all his name. ( Psalm 138:2 ). 5. The place of praise: Praise as they say is Good’s food. He draws from our praise
of Him and nourishes himself.
Psalm 22:3 KJV
[3] But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
In 2 Chron. 20, King Jehoshaphat overcame the confederation of the three kings
who came to battle against him through the instrumentality of praise. May the Lord help us to always dwell in His secret place.
These are just a few of the ways you can dwell in the secret place of the most
