Shalom Beautiful Family of God!
Recently, Father God captured my heart with the power of His word in one of my favorite Psalms.  Psalm 91 releases so much life and truth to us as we place our trust and our hope deeper and more fully in the Lord in every area of our lives.  Psalm 91:1-2 says, “He who dwells 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 I will trust.
This is an incredibly powerful truth because we learn that no matter what our situation or circumstance may be, we are assured that as we dwell in the secret place of the Most High, that we will abide (continue/remain) under the shadow of our Almighty God.  This means that we will be overshadowed by the God of all creation, and so will every situation or circumstance that we personally face or face corporately as a body.  This is so important with the mid term elections coming up and with so much on the table to be decided that will shift the course of our nation for good or for worse.  We must heed the wisdom and truth that God is speaking to us all today in Psalm 91, that no matter what the condition, outcome, result or situation may be, we all are assured that we will abide under the covering of Almighty God, and be overshadowed by God’s greatness, glory, might, power, dominion and absolute authority!

Think about that for a minute….
As we make the secret place (our place of prayer & connection of intimacy with God) our primary place, we are promised that we will abide in this place of safety, refuge, covering and protection by our Father who reigns over everything! This means that His shadow of unmatched authority and rulership now overshadows us, and all our circumstances and situations.  That is a powerful liberating truth that combats the enemy attempts to throw heaviness, weariness, overwhelmed emotions or anything else at us that tries to move us from that place of dwelling in the secret place.

I’ve heard it said that, whatever overshadows you will shape you.  Let us all make an active decision TODAY, that we will continually, every day dwell in the secret place with our Lord Jesus Christ, and that in that place we will let God’s greatness overshadow everything in our lives so that we will be shaped by Almighty God’s greatness and power and not overwhelmed and shaped by fear of our circumstances or the circumstances going on in our nation and in our world.  God is greater, bigger and more powerful than anything, and as we dwell in the Father’s presence, we are strengthened and equipped with greater faith and Kingdom perspective for whatever lies ahead!  Bless you as you enjoy dwelling in the secret place this week, and may you be further equipped to soar onwards more confidently as you abide under His wings as your refuge.
