PSALM 91:1

KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 91:1 KJV” He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”

The psalms are songs of praise, thanksgiving, worship., confessions of one’s failures before God, as well as confessions of one’s faith in God. It is a very good practice to note some of them and read them aloud unto God and to yourself. Eph 5:19 KJV” Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; “Doing this would strengthen your faith as well as fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 91 is a psalm about God’s protection, and preservation of all who trust in Him. The verse one says, he that dwells in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. What is the secret place of the most high? It is called a secret place because it is hidden to certain people. Matthew 11:25 KJV” At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes”. The wise of this world question and reason out so many things about God and so they can’t access the secret place. The secret place is for those who are like babies. Those who would accept and trust everything God says.

The rest of the chapter from verse 2 to the end is the result of or the effect of dwelling in the secret place. To dwell in this secret place, means a decision not to respond to the senses, or what you see, feel, smell, taste or hear. You must only accept what God says in His word. It is a state of being at rest. (Heb 4:3) The secret place is God’s promises. Rest in God’s promises and you would abide under His mighty protective arm and provisions as well.

CONFESSIONS

I dwell in the secret place of the most high. I put my confidence and trust in His word of promises. I abide under His mighty arm of power. I have no fear of any kind.
