Psalm 91

Psalms 91:1

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Webster's translation for Dwell
To live as a resident; reside.
To exist in a given place or state: dwell in joy.

NET
As for you, the one who lives in the shelter of the sovereign One, and resides in the protective shadow of the mighty king.

We can not spend "Fleeting Moments" with God and expect that we will be under His protective shadow. We have to live, take up residence in His Presence. He has to become our breath and life and all that we do. It has to be a state of being and existing. That without Him we would not live. Do you rely on God this much?

Secret: Kept from public knowledge or from the knowledge of a certain person or persons.
Withdrawn, remote, or secluded: a secret hideaway.
something known only to a certain person or persons and purposely kept from the knowledge of others

There are places in God that are only made known when we learn to dwell in God's presence.

Matthew 11:25
[ Jesus’ Invitation ] At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to little children.

Jesus was calling His disciples little Children. He will only reveal certain things to those that seek His face and desire to spend that time with Him. People that think they know everything, will find that they know very little, especially when it comes to the things of God. Because you have to become as a little child, with the trust that only a child has, to have the Father reveal to you His most precious secrets.

Shadow: The definition of a shadow is a reflection of something produced by LIGHT hitting the object or someone who follows another person around.
A definite area of shade cast upon a surface by a body intercepting the LIGHT rays

This is such a great description of what a shadow is, and what God will do if we dwell in Him. It doesn't talk about the darkness of the shadow but rather what it is intercepting. We will intercept God's Light if we dwell in Him and in His Shadow. We will walk in the light, as we abide under His shadow.

1 John 1:5 NET
[ God Is Light, So We Must Walk in the Light ] Now this is the gospel message we have heard from him and announce to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.

There is no darkness in God. And we don't have to walk in darkness of this world if we dwell in Him and abide with Him.
