He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty
Study the life of Jesus Christ. Read the story over again. Study the thirty years of quiet subjection at Nazareth. Stand amazed before the three years of service. Think of the slander, the spitting, the backbiting, the hate—think of everything that Jesus endured that was unfathomably worse than you will go through. Yet His peace was undisturbed; it could not be violated. It is that peace that God exhibits in us when we sit in “heavenly places”—not a peace like it, but that very peace.
The circumstances of our lives will not hinder our peace. The rush and turmoil of the world will pass us by practically unnoticed. Why? Because we are sitting in “heavenly places” in Christ Jesus. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty,” where he is secure and safe.
Jesus is all the world to me. The security of His love and peace is sufficient.
