HE THAT DWELLS UNDER THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH (PSALM 91)

 

The secret place of the Most High is God's presence.

As David stated "Where can I go from Your Spirit ?

Or where can I go to escape Your presence?"

The presence of God is a refuge for us believers; in God's presence, we can obtain many things.

I've listed some characteristics of God's presence below so that we can understand it in the next paragraph.

The Lord's Presence Moves

 1.The Presence Of The Lord Moves With Us

 

 Exodus 33:15

[15]And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

God moved with the Israelites as they journeyed from Egypt. The Lord's presence not only remains with a believer, but it also moves with him.

So Moses begged the Lord to let Him go with them, knowing that the presence of the Lord is a secret place for so many important things.

Exodus 33:14

[14]And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

 

2. There is rest in His presence. 

Rest means peace, rest means getting out of trouble, rest means relief from your aches and pains. Because His presence is upon you, He will make you feel at ease even with your enemies.

When you need rest, you must be in the presence of the Lord, because that is what provides us with rest. Our dwelling in His presence, not our money or our prayers.

3. There is favor in the presence of God. 

 

Genesis 39:2-4

[2]And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

[3]And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

[4]And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

 

The more you abide in the presence of the Lord, the more the Lord shows you mercy and honours you in a way that you will be celebrated in every area you find yourself. 

You must abide in His presence or secret place for such an encounter.

 

4. There is joy in the presence of God. 

 

Psalms 16:11

[11]Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

When you want to experience the fullness of joy, you must understand that the Secret location for such an encounter or dimension is in God's presence.

The Almighty has provided us with the opportunity to enter into such rest, joy, peace, encounter, and favor, but it is up to us to maintain it.

How Can I Live Under The Most High's Secret Place?

This is a critical question. Know that abiding in God's presence is the most important thing you can do as a believer; without the Lord's presence, you are just like any other man in the world. Our uniqueness stems from His presence, which also brings us glory.

The fact that you are a Christian does not automatically place you in His presence.

"To abide" should tell you that you should "stay in," but many Christians do not stay in God's presence for various reasons.

Getting my knees on the ground to pray.

 

In order to grow in the Lord, you have to be consistent and faithful. God wants us to be close with him on a regular basis and that means getting our knees on the ground in prayer. A lot of people think they don't have time for this but they just need more faith! When we pray regularly, we are able to feel His love more than ever before because we're closer than ever before! We can also ask Him questions about things that happen in our life or even just get advice from Him on how best handle situations where we may not know what's best for us or others around us (such as when someone else makes an inappropriate comment).

 

Prayer isn't always easy but it's worth it because when we pray every day without fail, everything will fall into place perfectly without fail as well!

 


 

Keeping good company (i.e., avoiding unwholesome media).

 

One of the best ways to keep your mind focused on God is to avoid unwholesome media. Unwholesome media can include anything that might distract you from Him when His presence feels like too much for you. Here are some tips for staying away from this stuff:

 

Keep track of what time it is, so that if need be, you can stop watching TV or checking social media at a certain time each day (and then stick with it).

 

When using your phone or computer, don't allow yourself access until after prayer time has passed (or even longer). This will help train your brain not to get sucked into whatever else may be happening during those times—and instead focus on God's Word!

 

 

 

There are several reasons for this, and here are a few of them:

 Iniquity/Sin 

When you sin or allow iniquity to take hold of your heart and whole life, you cannot abide or stay in the presence of the Lord. Because God hate sin, you will not be accepted to even be abide in that Secret place first of all because you have broken the principles of staying in God's presence or in God's secret place.

New International Version ISAIAH 59:1-2

Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.

Pride

Pride is an ugly thing. It's the opposite of humility and it's pride that destroys lives, families and nations. Pride can be a very destructive force in your life because it makes you think you're better than others or more important than others. If you have any amount of pride in yourself, your family or your church then we need to deal with this before it gets out of control!

Pride is also a big indicator that someone doesn't really know Jesus well enough because if they did they wouldn't be so arrogant about themselves or their own abilities (or lack thereof). For example: If I'm proud enough about myself that I don't need Jesus' help then why should anyone else?

New Living Translation JAMES 4:6

And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

Judging others

Judging others is a sin. It's not a good way to show love, or demonstrate grace and mercy.

In fact, judging others can lead us down the path of making judgements on ourselves as well.

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness is a poison that destroys relationships. It's a poison that destroys our relationship with God and it also destroys our relationship with ourselves, our bodies, and others.

If you are guilty of unforgiveness, ask yourself if there are any situations where you might have been hurt by someone else or by yourself? If so then be willing to forgive them. Forgive yourself first because if you don't forgive yourself then how can anyone else?

You must also learn how to forgive others, if you forgive others, God will also forgive you. Before God restored Job, he asked Job to forgive his friends before God restored everything Job lost. If you want your breakthrough, fullness of His joy, the better walk with God, then you have to forgive others as you want God to forgive you. Do you know the number of times you have 

New International Version MATTHEW 6:12
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

 

Selfishness

Selfishness is not a good thing. It's not about what you want, it's about what you need. Selfishness is not about what you think, it's about what you feel. And selfishness is not just one thing; it can be any of the following:

· 

You are thinking more about yourself than others in your life

· 

· 

You're feeling like giving up on God because of how hard things have been for you lately (or ever)

· 

· 

You're saying things like "God won't help me," or "I'm too busy" when really all that means is that there's too much going on in your life right now and maybe tomorrow will be better...or worse...so why bother?

· 

Lust and sexual immorality

Lust is a desire for something that is not good for you. It can lead to sexual immorality, which is the sin of having sex with someone other than your spouse or partner.

Sexual immorality also includes pornography, masturbation and any form of sexual activity outside of marriage between two people who are committed to each other in marriage.

The Bible says that “the body” refers to our physical bodies (0

 

Doubt, fear and worry

Doubt, fear and worry are all the result of the devil. They are all caused by Satan’s deceptive tactics to keep you from being close to God.

Doubt is the opposite of faith in your heart. If you doubt that Jesus can save you or save someone else, then it must mean that you don’t believe He exists at all! You may have heard people say things like “I don't know if God exists," or "I'm not sure whether God has a plan for me." These statements show doubt—but they also show faith in Christ because they allow us to put our trust in what He has said about Himself: "He who believes in Me [Jesus] shall live [not die]!" (John 11:25).

Fear is caused by anxiety over what might happen if we don't follow through on our plans; worry stems from uncertainty about something important happening later on down the road (such as finishing college before graduating high school); both types of feelings are completely unnecessary because there's nothing wrong with admitting mistakes made during life's journey so long as lessons learned become part of our growth process rather than holding us back from moving forward towards our goals!

Addiction and idolatry

Addiction is a form of idolatry. When we get caught up in our addictions, it can be hard to see the larger picture and our place in God's world. We may find ourselves becoming obsessed with certain things—whether it's food or sex or drugs or even work—to the point where they become more important than anything else. But there are many ways that this kind of subservience can lead to spiritual destruction:

Self-righteousness

Self-righteousness is the belief that we are better than others. It is pride, self-centeredness and self-indulgence. It's also a form of self-deception.

This kind of "I'm right because I'm right" thinking causes us to be judgmental towards others and their behavior; it makes us feel superior and superior to God in our own eyes (which will prompt him to leave).
