The Secret Place

Updated on April 29, 2013

The Secret Place

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (Whose power no foe can withstand).

Psalm 91 : 1

As we throd through the lonely, narrow and thorny path of the christian journey we have to learn to dwell in the secret place of the Most High. God has a secret place where we can dwell in peace and safety. The secret place is the place of rest in GOD, or a place of comfort in Him. The secret place is a "spiritual place " where cares of this world vanish and where we find a perfect peace that settles the strife deep within our hearts.

This is an appointed time in an appointed place where we meet the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. This is a secret place wherein we are completely alone with GOD in His presence. In this place, we can come without any reservations, we are assured of an unconditional acceptance, we are loved for who we are no matter how dark our past was, despite of all our flaws and failures. In this secret place, with complete confidence, we can speak out all our hidden fears, worries, cares and concerns, things that we may not be able to speak out even to the most intimate person to us cause of fear of rejection. In the secret place we are completely accepted and we are never rejected.

God wants us to make our permanent residence there in the secret place for GOD is our perfect HOME and in His presence we find everlasting peace. We should not simply visit there from time to time, but should make it as a constant part of our life. God wants us to be in the secret place, to make it our "hiding place" a refuge or shelter. The world has many alternatives for those people beset by strife and troubles, such as the night clubs,the movies, television, computers, etc. These things may offer temporary comfort but will not give us lasting pece of mind. As children of GOD, we are urged to come to the secret place where we are completely welcome and this is our greatest refuge as it is written,

" The Name of the LORD is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe. "

May God rest you,

Cristina Santander

      I am not a formal Christian, but I share this belief. God loves unconditionally, and we can evolve by loving without expectation.
