““He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalm 91: 1

Comment:

This passage is an assurance and an encouragement to the people of God to always exercise implicit faith in His power to protect,  guide, sustain and deliver His people at all times and in every situation. The “secret place” here mentioned is God's Organization or kingdom on earth, symbolically called Mountain, where the sheep of God will flee to for refuge and protection in this last day by God's grace. Such ones will be under the protection of God which David the prophet meant when he said: “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shall thou trust.” (Psalm 91: 4) As one who had suffered diverse tribulations and had escaped death so many times, not by his wisdom or powers in battle, but by the mercy of God on him, King David said further: “I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God ; in him will I trust.” – Psalm 91:2.

 

Stressing the fact that it is only those who diligently seek the Lord wholeheartedly that get His help in the time of trouble, the Psalmist stated: “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angel charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” – Psalm 91:9-11; 2 Chronicles 15:2; James 4:8.
