Psalm 91:1

ON THE MOVE or MOVING ON

 

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

 

Life is full of changes. We move on physically, emotionally, and mentally.

 

According to this verse, we need to be on the move on spiritually as well. We need to move on!

 

MOVE IN! - "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High..."

 

You have a physical dwelling place, a home where you spend most of your time.

If you are a Christian, you are invited to move into the presence of God.  You are to dwell in His presence.

 

You move into God's presence through:

Prayer - John 15:7

Praise - Hebrews 13:15-16

Scripture Reading - 2 Timothy 2:15

Memorization and Meditation on God's Word - Joshua 1:8, Psalm 1:2, Psalm 119:97-100

Fellowship - Matthew 18:20, Hebrews 10:24-25

 

MOVE UP! - "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High..."

 

It is a secret place.  Only those who know Christ find it.  Only those who confess sin find it. (Psalm 119:18, Psalm 32:5)  Only those who seek it, find it. (Psalm 27:8).

 

It is a step up to communion with our Great High Priest. Hebrews 4:14-16

It is a step up above sin, above the world, and above worry.

 

MOVE UNDER! - "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

 

The shadow is protection. There's more protection for the person who dwells in the secret place of the most high.  As he stays focused on the Lord, He will have peace (Isaiah 26:3). As he gives his problems to the Lord, he will have peace (Philippians 4:6-7). We will be protected from anxiety and worry!  We will relax in the truths of Psalm 121
