_He that dwelleth in the SECRET PLACE of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. *Psalms 91:1*_
This is a great day for you, this day God would look upon you to do you good for he is absolute good.
In this week’s edition, we would proceed by a detour to our destination ‘The Secret Place’. This week’s post is dedicated to bringing to our awareness the need to live by principles and how God is the respecter of principled people.
_What is Principle? How does Principles connect with the secret place?_
*A principle is a law or rule that has to be, or usually is to be followed, or can be desirably followed, or is an inevitable consequence of something* – Wikipedia.
*A fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behaviour or for a chain of reasoning* – Oxford dictionary.
*A basic idea or rule that explains or controls how something happens or works* – Cambridge dictionary.
One word stands out in the above definitions – ‘rule’. Principle is a rule that must be followed, it builds the foundation for all reasoning and actions. Principles forms the basic foundation for our actions and beliefs. Principles are the only type of subject which correspond to "truth" in any meaningful way.
Unlike facts and procedures and concepts which can either be learned or invented and which are only limited to a particular group. Principle produce the same result for everyone irrespective of your race, gender, beliefs, location or qualifications. One important attribute of principle is that it is universally relevant.
Dwelling in the secret place is a principle – a fundamental truth that’s active, producing results world over. It doesn't matter who or how you chose to use the principle, it works for all. It is God’s utmost desire for His sons to take advantage of the principle of dwelling in the secret place. Since the following of principle would produce results for anybody who would only follow, the world are most beneficiaries of the principle because they had done wisely: “for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light” - Luke 16:8
Have you ever wondered why witches, wizards, sorcerers, the occult and workers if wickedness are called principalities and powers? Have you ever wondered why all the activities of the aforementioned are always in the secret? Have you ever wondered what authority awaits all who would only go into the secrets to war? Witches, wizards and the occult would meet in the secret but cause lots of havoc in the physical. It only a handful of believers that understands this principles are commanding results.
Anyone who is taken to following principles in his/her given sphere becomes a principality in that sphere.
It is generally acceptable that a metal or steel becomes magnetic when it spends much time with a magnet. The longer you dwell in the presence of God, the more like God you’d become – the more of His essence would be rubbed on you, the more your god nature would be given ascendance [Psa. 82:6], the more your reach and influence would grow.
Anyone who desires the fulfilment of Genesis chapter one verse twenty eight mandate must be a principled man/woman in the secret place, if you are one, you must embrace the principle of waiting, this is where you mount up strengths to run your race to the finish.
The secret place works for both the godly and the satanic. Our failure came only because we had forgotten and ignored our ideals and principles. The point we gave up following the principle of dwelling and spending time with the Father was the point our downward plunge as a church began. We became a people that valued rights and privileges above principles and responsibility – our rights and privileges keeps evading us.
This is a call to take back control of your given sphere of influence by following the principle of dwelling in the secret place of God fervently and vigorously. The secret place is a principle, it worked for generals of old, it is working for our contemporary generals, it would work for you. It is not enough to become aware that secret place dwelling is a principle, it must a form a major part of your daily rituals.
