He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty – Psalm 91:1
Due to the rate and extent of evil, and wickedness in today’s world, many have become afraid, asking, “Does God still care? Can we trust Him to take care of us? Is He close enough to do something?” Emphatically yes! Actually, He doesn’t need to do anything anymore; He’s already done all that’s necessary for your safety and protection.
The Bible says He has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6). The one who should be bothered about the problems and evil in the world is the one who isn’t in Christ. Christ is our security, peace, safety and protection; He’s our dwelling place. Our opening verse is very emphatic about this; it says, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
To dwell in the secret place of the Most High is to dwell in Christ; meaning He’s your habitation. Anyone who dwells in that “secret place” abides under the shadow of the Almighty; that means he’s under the protection of the Almighty.
In the New Testament, Apostle Paul puts it this way: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation…” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Christ is that dwelling place; because you’re in Christ, you are, and will always be, safe. Psalm 91:8-9 says, “Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation.”
As a child of God, you have no reason to be afraid of terror. The Lord, the Most High, is your habitation! The Bible says, “Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day” (Psalm 91:5). You’re in Christ; therefore, you’re supernaturally protected! You abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Confession (Faith’s Proclamation)
Christ is my dwelling place, and my trust is in the Lord! Therefore, as the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so am I completely shielded from every form of evil in the world. No harm shall befall me; neither shall any plague come near my dwelling, because my life is hid with Christ in God! Halleluiah!
