Are You Hidden?

There is as much substance between the lines of Psalm 91 as there is in each verse because of the pictorial similes. The Passion Translation captures it well. “When you sit enthroned (dwell) under the shadow (protection) of Shaddai (the one who has power to complete promises of blessing and prosperity), you are hidden (safe from harm) in the strength of God Most High (the one positioned above everything).”

Colossians 3 says: “Therefore if you have been raised up (to life) with Christ, keep seeking (desire, try to obtain) the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died (completely dead to the old nature) and your life is hidden (kept safe, made invisible) with Christ in God.” [My emphasis added]

“He’s the hope that holds me and the Stronghold that shelters me, the only God for me, and my great confidence. He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse.”

How would my life be different if I believed these things wholeheartedly?
