Safe in “the Secret Place”

Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High Will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.

=====================================================

Dedication and baptism result in another rich blessing the privilege of dwelling in “the secret place of the Most High.”  This is a figurative place of safety and security a condition, or state, of protection from spiritual harm. It is a “secret place” because it is unknown to people who lack spiritual vision and do not trust in God. By living in harmony with our dedication and by exercising complete confidence in Jehovah, in effect we are saying to him: “You are my refuge and my stronghold, my God, in whom I will trust.”  Jehovah God becomes our secure dwelling place. Who could ask for more than that?

Gaining access to “the secret place” of Jehovah also implies that we have been blessed with the privilege of having developed a personal relationship with him. This begins with dedication and baptism. Thereafter, we build on our relationship with God by drawing close to him through Bible study, heartfelt prayer, and full obedience.

No one has ever been closer to Jehovah than Jesus, whose confidence in the Creator has never wavered.  Therefore, let us never doubt Jehovah or his desire and ability to help us fulfill our dedication vow. The spiritual provisions that God has made for his people are undeniable evidence that he truly loves us and wants us to succeed in serving him.
