She wants them to know that God has a secret place of security. A place of intimacy with him that protects and preserves us even as God uses the experiences of disappointment to prepare us for our call-in ministry. “He who dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty…Because thou hast made the Lord, who is my refuge even the Most High thy habitation….” Psalm 91.
