I love this scripture, He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Ps 91:1) He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge. (Ps 91:4)
I usually consider that a promise from God that He will be with me when I trust in Him. I can literally see Him covering me with protection. It’s a very secure and comforting feeling.
But I’ve also come to understand that it’s not just about me as an individual that He covers. When we unit as a body and meet together to experience the presence of God, we actually gather in the secret place of the Most High. That place where we worship and praise Him, where His presence is sweet, becomes His secret place.
It’s secret because others can come in and sit right next to you and not enter into it. Only those whose hearts are open and hungry for God will feel His presence and know He is near. Others may benefit from the covering of His wings, but never enter the secret place.
But God’s not very good at keeping secrets. He says, Come to Me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. His secret is out. It’s up to you to enter in.
