Psalm 91 speaks of a special place. Notice the readings of Psalm 91:1-2 from both the NIV and the KJV versions of the Bible to catch the power of the words. First, the King James Version reads, He that dwelleth 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 will I trust.” Second, the New International Version reads, He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
God wants us to come to Him and abide under His shadow because it is a place of expectation and eternal peace. It is a place ripe with the potential of hope and promise. It is an inward retreat from outward disappointments. The secret place of shelter is a place of safety from spiritual evil. Satan has dubbed many people into taking the wrong definition of full-life. People spend their lifetimes lunging for the gold which they think will bring fulfillment and purpose only to find when they get there, they are empty. Gusto living is abiding in the shadow of the Almighty. Gusto living can only be found in Jesus and in His church.
