DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 16:1-43; Ezekiel 16:35-63; John 6:1-21

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:3

The word “secret” signifies a “hiding place” (Ps. 32:7). Like a bird covers her young with her wings, we can trust in the shelter of God’s wings (Ps. 61:4). As we trust Him He assures us with “songs of deliverance” (Ps. 32:7). A shadow speaks of someone’s presence. God doesn’t just hide us and then leave us. He permanently hides us in His presence by placing us in the secret place of His Son. Christ will never leave us nor forsake us. What security! —George Ferrier

The Lord’s our Rock, in Him we hide, a shelter in the time of storm;
Secure whatever ill betide, a shelter in the time of storm.—V. Charlesworth
