He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalms 91:1 KJV
It’s been one of those days at work. I sigh and try to focus on my next task. Suddenly, even simple concentration seems beyond me.
“Help Lord.” It is the cry of a son to his father. I am a limited man appealing to an infinite God. I dare to ask.
In the blink of an eye, everything changes. The cut-rate carpet becomes a gold-plated floor. The harsh florescent light transforms to the warm glow of the Menorah. In my heart and mind I am now at the Mercy Seat and in the presence of God.
For a time, I just breathe. His grace and mercy is a rare atmosphere. His provision and care is a rich incense.
I stop short of speaking my complaints and questions. Instead, I pour out my gratitude and adoration. My presence in this place of refuge and restoration is solution enough.
He draws close. His power is obvious. His sovereignty absolute. His love for me without question.
All too soon, I’m back in the workplace. My brief journey to God’s secret place reminds me I live under God’s influence. I dwell in His domain and under His power. It shall be well.
Think : No matter where I sit, I live in God’s power and influence.
Pray: “Lord, help me dwell in the secret place of Your power and influence.”
