Amoungst all the pestilence and danger all around there is a secret place. In this place there is deliverence from the snare of the fowler(Psalm 91:3). As believers our faith prayers of declaring that God is our hiding place and security seals us under a protected dwelling place. Below are some points to consider on staying under God’s protection.
1) Making God our habitation.
God promises to deliver us when we make him our habitation and set our love upon him. When we know His name there is assurance we will be set on high.
The secret place where we reside and dwell is where our praises flow unhinderedly. Our praises is where God will always be.
Hinderences to the Secret Place:
Drunkenness – When we are not sober we are open to excess of any evil. It gives Satan legal access to wreck havoc in our physical, mental and spiritual well being. Being filled with the Spirit is the solution to being set free from the snare of drunkenness whether physically, spiritually or mentally. “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit.”(Ephesians 5:18)
2) Setting Our Love Upon the Lord
Where there is love there is no room for fear. Torment is not from God. Even when a host may encamp around us, when we abide is setting our love upon God our hearts don’t need to fear cause in loving on the Lord we remain in that secret place. When war rises up against us when we abide in love we can have confidence.
Dwelling in God’s house, beholding His beauty and inquiring of Him in His temple are some ways we set our love upon Him through faithfulness and seeking after Him.
As we trust that God will lift our head above our enemies we can sing praises unto Him and offer sacrifices of joy.
Anxious and troubled many of us lack that ONE THING when we look in the spiritual mirror and see the reflection from pain and failure. If the truth be told many of us struggle with being consistent with that ONE THING that God is asking of us.
3) Knowing God’s name
In the secret place of protection we know that God is a strong tower and as the righteous that’s where we run and find safety(Proverbs 18:10). Knowing who God is and His ways gives Him access to be and do who He is in our lives.
God shine your truth on us that we will learn to continually make you our habitation, set our love upon you and know your name. Help us to stand with the armour of power and protection that we are shielded in your presence. May we continually decree and declare your promises trusting that the work is already done and believing that they will manifest just like you said.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
