“Keep me as the apple of the eyes, hide me under the shadow of thy wings”(Psalms 17:8).
It’s a glorious day. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”(Psalms 91:1). When you take a look at this verse, you’re struck with the reality of a being called ‘the Most High‘. He is so named because He is higher than the highest (Eccl 5:8). He is none other than Jesus Christ. Philip. 2:9 says, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, & given Him a name which is above every name.”
Besides, you will notice that the Most High has a secret place where He hides His own in the time of trouble according to Psalms 27:5-6. That secret place contrary to what many believe is not a physical building but a name- JESUS CHRIST.
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, & is safe”(Proverbs 18:10). The reason His name is that secret place of safety is because Phili.2:10 says whenever trouble looms, all you need to do is call that name and every knee must bow. He is so named because He is stronger than everything and everyone and can do the impossible. He is the custodian of all power (Matthew 28:8).
Another look at this verse reveals that the Almighty has a shadow where His precious ones can take refuge. Sinners cannot hide there. It is meant for believers only. The Lord can also keep believers as the apple of His eyes (Psalms 17:8). The apple of the eye of any man is the most delicate and precious spot which he will do anything to protect.
Under the shadow, you can hide & enjoy absolute abundance, safety and security (Psalms 23:5). In 1 Kings 17:2-7, God hid His prophet by the brook Cherith. Yet they searched everywhere but could not find him. And it never occurred to them to check the brook.
I pray, the Lord will hide you from every evils. Every agent of destruction looking for you will not see you in Jesus Name.
Father, hide every member of my family, (The body of Christ) from all evils in Jesus Amen. Stay blessed, safe and RAPTURABLE in Jesus Christ Name. Amen. PEACE.
