He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Psalm 91:1

What a privilege it is for the children of God to have such a residence as this. The residence of the Most High God, beside Him there is no other. He says in Isaiah 45:4 I am the LORD, and there is no other, besides me there is no God and again in Deuteronomy 32:39 “See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides Me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver out of My hand.”

Not only do we have the privilege of dwelling in the secret place but we will be right under the shadow which is to say in close proximity to the Almighty. He is the Almighty God, He says is there any thing that is too hard for me. “Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, in heaven and in the earth, in the seas and in all deep places.” Psalm 135:6 Such a God as this is our refuge and fortress.

I once read a story of a child who went to Sunday School and on returning home, the mother asked what she was taught. The child said they were told the story of a man named Enoch who would walk with God every day. One day they walked so far that that when it was time to return, God said to Enoch, my home is closer than yours, come to my home and so he went and lived with God in His home.

This residence is for permanent dwelling, one cannot go there and visit or rent it for a period of time, rather it is an eternal dwelling place. Are you one of its residents? If not, ask the Lord Jesus and He will make you one.
