He that dwelleth in the SECRET PLACE of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalms 91:1 KJV
The secret place has been likened to a lot of things in recent times but one thing is certain; it is a place of intimacy. God commands us to come out from among them and be separate (2 Cor 6:17). The place of this separation is the place of secrecy.
WHAT IS IT??
It is a place of solitude.
It is a place of shelter.
It is a place of rest.
It is a place of God’s presence.
Jesus left men and went into a solitary place every morning to pray. The trek to the secret place starts with a solitary walk with God. Its a personal pursuit, that ends with a group procession.
WHAT HAPPENS AS WE ABIDE??
Usually nothing happens on the outside (physically) as we tarry, but as we abide in the secret place, it becomes a public place, so much so that wherever we go, the atmosphere changes. Some call it “carrying the presence of God” but it is just the results of abiding in the secret place for long.
As we continue in the secret place behind the veil, we’ll get to separate the physical secret place of fellowship from the spiritual, so that even though we may not be at our places of prayer, we can enter the secret place anytime and anywhere because we’ve found the route there.
We get to know that there’s no difference between the atmosphere of a prayer meeting and that of our kitchens. God’s Omnipresence is substituted for His Very Presence. Everywhere then becomes the secret place.
As you abide, just like Elijah, you’ll become conscious of the supernatural without having to physically see them.
WE HAVE COME TO MOUNT ZION
Hebrews 12:22 tells us about Mount Zion to make us “know” what is there and not to “see” what’s there. The writer wouldn’t have described what’s there if we could all see it. Mount Zion is the place of walking in the consciousness of God, and the heavenly host.
But what do we experience at Mount Sinai? Mount Sinai is the place of dramatic encounters. The place we hear and see God for ourselves and tremble. But as we get down from Mount Sinai, we must not refuse to walk in its consciousness.
THE SECRET PLACE IS OUR SOIL
We are like seeds. The soil of personal fellowship is what will make us sprout. Men may not see us as we’re planted in the earth nevertheless the more we remain in the soil, inevitably, we’ll sprout and men cannot but notice the change.
The secret place is our soil. The secret place is a little farther than a Bible study and prayer life.
We should not only visit the secret place frequently; we must abide there in order to ever grow.
