He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
Praise the Lord! This moment, we are set to run in the strength of the prophetic word of SUPERNATURAL PROTECTION. There are few things that we need to tighten our grasp on in order to run successfully in the strength of the word for the moment.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High….
In the verse above, two words are vitally important: dwell and place. Firstly, in order to enjoy the protection of the Almighty in this moment, we must make tarrying in the presence of God top priority. The word dwelleth, in this verse suggests the act of habitually residing in a place without any immediate intention to leave. It also suggests this dwelling as an act of resolve and unflinching commitment, making it a cause. It therefore goes to say that if and when we make it our passion this moment to pursue the presence of God, we will create a fortress around ourselves that puts us far out of the reach of enemy forces.
The second key word being the secret place is interpreted to mean a hiding place, a covert, a place that is illusory to the enemy so that while you are in this place, you come below the radar of wicked forces. In other words, you enter into the “past finding out” dimension of God. Your tracks are covered and the enemy will have a hard time cracking your code. It’s a marvellous place to operate from. For while the enemy is at a loss as to how to deal with and demystify you, you are taking giant strides in the direction of God’s plan for your life.
Another beautiful thing about this Hiding place is that it offers shade from the harsh realities at work in the environment. Imagine the travails of those who are being hit by what is popularly known as economic meltdown. It is a hostile heat that is hanging over the lives of so many. The good news is that for every one who dwells continuously in the secret place, there is immunity from every hurt. It is important to however know that this place is a place of prayer, a place where we obtain grace for help in time of need and you will agree with me that there is a ravaging evil threatening the whole world today.
While the shadow of the Most High is most long, it provides coverage only for those that deliberately situate themselves in His presence. It is therefore our responsibility to establish ourselves resolutely in the Place, the hiding place. It is my firm conviction that in this moment, we are going to witness our God fight our battles and prevail on our behalf so that we can say, “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.” Psalm 27:1-3
You are too protected to be molested!
