Devotional: In the Secret Place

Reading: Psalm 91

Marked: Psalm 91:1 "Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."

Social Media is a great platform for people to connect & get updates on people and happenings in life. But if one is not careful, he or she can become preoccupied with the lives of others & get distracted or addicted to finding pleasure, amusement, and even validation from other people and things.

The Internet is a great venue for intellectual enrichment. A Christian can busy himself with gaining knowledge about theological matters so much so that the great wide web can become his man source of learning since it is so easy to just do a word search on Google for anything at anytime. You can let other people do the research and thinking for you and all you have to do is sit back and read.

Psalm 91 opens our eyes to the richness that can be found in spending actual intimate moments with God. The passage also rebukes & challenges us of the need to prioritize dwelling in the secret place of His fellowship & rest.

Matthew Henry shares: "A true believer that dwells in the secret place of the Most High is AT HOME IN God, he acquaints himself with INWARD religion, and makes HEART-WORK of the service of God, worships WITHIN the veil, and LOVES to be ALONE with God, to CONVERSE with him in SOLITUDE...  It is his privilege & comfort to have God  shelter him & come between him & everything that would annoy him whether storm or sunshine." 

Today, let's take a moment to pray for a heart that never stops desiring the personal discovery and experience of our Father in actual, real day-to-day living. Let's directly connect with the pages of the Written Word and spend unhurried time allowing God to reveal Himself and His heart for us in this lifetime.
