“Everything in your life will try to keep you away from from ‘The Secret Place’ – when that happens you will begin to fall in other areas and you ask yourself ‘Why is it such a battle'”
The secret place is where you meet with God to get instruction..correction…cleansing..loving and being built up for the future. Your secret place can be anywhere but it has to be somewhere, it can be set to anytime but it has to be sometime that is set. It has to be the most important appointment in your day.
Jesus is our example. He often rose before the day breaks to pray knowing what awaits Him. He makes deposits in the early mornings to be able to make withdrawals later in the day. Children of God without deposits made in “the secret place”, what would you have to draw on? You’ll work harder and harder and less to show for it, because you are operating in your own strength. But after you’ve prayed you will struggle less and accomplish more because you are operating in HIS strength.
“He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed” Isaiah 50:4
Do not get too involved in the work of the Lord that you neglect the Lord of the work. That is probably why Paul prayed, “I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him ….” Philippians 3:10
Nothing can be born without intimacy. Everything you really want to become is in God’s presence. Have you been there today?
Prayer: Father, if there is any area in my life that have been blind to knowing the essence of Your Presence take it away from me Lord. Open my heart to knowing Your will for me on daily basis.
