Scripture Reading:- Psalm 91
Topic:- How To Dwell In God’s Secret Place 
Text:- Psalm 91:1
They were encompassed by the power of God! That same protection belongs to us today when we dwell in the secret place of the Most High. See Psalm 91:1-11.
The Spirit of God told me this concerning the secret place: There is a place in Christ Jesus where we abide in the secret place of God’s protection. The world knows nothing about this secret place, nor can they live there. It is a place revealed by the Holy Spirit. It is for the obedient. Our lives are hidden with Christ in God. You and I can live in the secret place. Wherever we go, that secret place goes with us, surrounding and encircling us. See Colossians 3:3.
2. God has covered you with a garment of Light. God Himself is encircled by what Scripture calls a garment of light. That is a description of the glory of God. Adam was created in God’s image and God. Adam truly looked Divine, because he was a reflection of God’s image. Think about it, Adam looked just like God. He was clothed in the glory of God. He wore a garment of light. See Psalm 8:5; 93; 104:1-2.
Now it’s true when Adam sinned, the glory departed from him. He lost that crown of honor. But thank God, Jesus got back everything in the redemption that Adam lost in the Fall.
As believers in Christ, we are temples of the living God. He goes everywhere we go when we are filled with Him. God lives in us and we should radiate His presence and love. He has covered us with a garment, or shield, of light.
We may not always be able to see it, but rest assured, beings in the spirit realm (including devils and demons) see and recognize the glory of God on us.
Occasionally, this light is visible in the natural too. Someone once sent us a copy of a picture they had taken of Brother Hagin preaching at one of our Believers’ Conventions. He was surrounded by God’s glory. A shield of light was visible around him in the photo.
3. Keep a shield of the Word over you, so no fiery dart of the devil can penetrate your life. Even though as a Christian the Holy Spirit lives within you, you still must make sure you have your shield of faith in place when the devil aims a fiery dart at you.
And you do that by knowing what the Word promises about protection and believing and standing on it in faith. You will not have faith to believe for this protection if you don’t know what God says about it, because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. See Romans 10:17.
You must know His Word to have any basis for faith. By keeping a shield of the Word over you, no fiery dart of the devil can penetrate your life. Evil tidings may come, but don’t listen to them. Circumstances may look grim, but keep your heart fixed on God’s Word.
Look to His promises instead of the situation. Resist the devil. Take your seat in the refuge of the Most High and stay put! Hold your position even under pressure and your enemy will flee. See James 4:7.
Remember, everything you need is in that secret place with God. So hold your place by faith and believe what the Bible says. God desires to bless you, to surround you with goodwill, to always protect you. See Psalm 5:12.
Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to abide and dwell in Your presence always henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
