"The secret place"

THE ninety-first psalm opens with the words, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." The stately beauty and spirituality of thought therein expressed have furnished inspiration and comfort to thousands of seekers after Truth. The conception of divine Mind's ever-presence and loving care for its creation, revealed by this exalted vision, invariably uplifts hope to anticipate better things than the disappointing events which seem to constitute much of a mortal's common experience. It is a source of strength and protection to all who learn to apply it with some degree of understanding to any problem that presents itself. That practical use of it is possible at the present time is being abundantly attested by students of Christian Science all over the world, in almost numberless instances of apparently insuperable danger and difficulty overcome by the application of this true thought alone.

To this it is sometimes objected by the "man in the street" that many years have already been given to Bible study in the vain effort to know and to do the will of God, but without any very tangible gain; also that, as the condition referred to is "secret," there is little if any benefit to be derived from an endeavor to discover it. In reply, the questions may be asked, Why does one person obtain a definite answer to prayer when another does not? and, What is the "secret place," and from what is it secret?
