Psalm 91, beginning at verse 1, gives us an incredible promise, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.’ Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.”
There’s so much today that threatens the peace and security of those of us who want to honor and live for God. Voices and schemes seem to rise up every day telling us that there’s no God and His protection no longer exists. But there is a place-a divine place of peace and safety in God, unseen by those who love evil, though it is as real as the air we now breathe. Psalm 91 describes it as a secret place-a place of peace, freedom, and hope. We find it when we pray. That’s why it’s time to pray.
