He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the
shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. – Psalm 91:1
Imagine a life where no evil befalls you, no plague comes near you and you have perfect peace all the time. Well, when we read Psalm 91, we can see such a beautiful life being portrayed. We are now living in Christ and He is that secret place. Verse 7 says “a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.” How amazing is this! Do you realize that this Psalm is not just some far-fetched, fairy-tale idea that you have to look at and admire? No! It was written in order for people to know what kind of life they can experience when they dwell in the secret place of God. This is for you today!
There is not a moment that Psalms 91 is not true. No matter what you go through, no matter what you experience in life, what chaos you have been in, what destruction you have witnessed, or what suffering you had. The Word is still true. When God revealed this truth to me, I understood for the first time that I can believe the word of God apart from what I see happening around me. In other words, my circumstances, and my world around me can change, but God’s Word will never change. God is only good, and Psalms 91 is always true. It does not change for a certain specific situation. I personally do not preach my experiences or situations. I preach the Word as it is, until my experiences look like the Word says it should. That is why I preach: “By His wounds we are healed” in the face of a world full of sickness. That is why I preach no evil will befall you in the face of a world that experiences a lot of evil.
Look away from your realities and situation around you and look at what God is saying to you; “Those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High, shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord: “he is my rock, my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust. He will cover you with His Pinions and under His wings shall you find refuge”. Just hearing these words brings so much peace to my heart. Every word in this Psalm is written so that we can
hear it, believe it, and experience the reality of it. All things are possible for them that believe (Mark 9:23).
I want to encourage you to read the whole chapter of Psalm 91 and make it personal. Write your name in there if you have to. Choose to build your life on the word of God and you will see your realities bow to the truth.
Psalms 91 is not written in your Bible so that you can be encouraged when you go through trouble. It is written to describe the life that God intends for you to experience. A life full of glory.
