Holy Spirit Residence – The Secret Place, Part 1
You as God’s child are the resting place, the abiding place, the Holy Ghost residence of the Most High God. He has taken up residence. He is not just a renter. He is a home owner. He is in us and we are in Him. Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. He dwells in us. We are His people. He is our God. He desires to be the One Who takes care of us. He is a wonderful caretaker.
We also are to dwell or abide in Him. Let’s look at Psalm 91:1.
We dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Most High God. We live in God. Our lives are immersed in His life. His Life is flowing through us. His Love is flowing through us. His Light is flowing through us. He doesn’t stop that flow. We are the ones who can stop it.
I am learning that I must consistently stay focused on what God’s Word says about me, regardless of what I feel or whether it appears to be working in my life. The Word is not true because it works in my life. The Word is true, period, end of paragraph! I must have this mindset: God’s Word is true for me and it will work for me. He is no respecter of persons.
What is this secret place of the Most High God? It is His covering, His protection, our shelter from the enemy, and our place of His abiding Presence. It is His Word. It is His Presence. It is God’s place. I’m living there. Psalm 31:20: God hides us in the secret place of His Presence. He hides us. He keeps us secretly in His pavilion, covering, shelter, defense and hedges us in, shuts us up and protects us from the evil one. In this secret place we are inaccessible to the enemy. It is forbidden access to him.
I am fixed in this secret place. Everyone who is born again lives in God’s secret place (His Presence), whether they know it or whether they act on this knowledge. In this place in God we are stable; we are unalterably settled; we are set; we are firm; we are steadfast; and we are established. Established in what? Him and His Word and faith in Him performing His Word in our lives personally.
