Find refuge and safety in the Allness of God

For the lesson titled "Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced" from May 23–29, 2011

Are we tempted to hopelessly accept danger and destruction as a part of life? This week’s Bible Lesson, titled “Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced,” encourages us to think again. It illustrates how the promise of the Golden Text, “The enemy is gone forever. . . . the Lord rules forever” (Ps. 9:6, 7, New Century Version), can be realized as we understand what it means to dwell in the “secret place of the most High” (Ps. 91:1, Responsive Reading). 

The New Interpreter’s Bible links the 91st Psalm to Paul’s teachings, calling it a “reminder to us that ‘nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God’ (Rom. 8:39)” (Vol. IV,  p. 1048). This love of God is the secret place in which we dwell. God is a refuge—a safe hiding place—for His creation.
