Text: Matthew 6: 6. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
A secret place is a place of secret and deep communication with God.
It is a place void of distraction, a place of encounter, a place of renewal, a place of refreshment.
To every success, every good we admire, it was borne in the secret place.
There’s a secret side to every success of man underneath the earth, it is the side of hard work, sleepless nights, prayer, steady plans, and deep sacrifices.
What you don’t have with God in the secret, a relationship you have failed to build in the secret will not magically appear in the public.
The secret place is that place of power and deep encounter.
Do you want to meet one on one with God? it is in the secret place.
Do you want your voice to count in public?
Dwell with God in the secret.
The answer you have longed for thus far is not far from you. Set aside a personal daily meeting place with God, empty your entire being before Him, spend time there with Him, let Him know what He is to you and how deep you love Him.
Beloved when you pray, enter into your closet, shut the door behind you, and pray to God who sees and dwells in the secret place, search Him and you’ll see Him.
It is not bad climbing mountains to meet with God in prayers, but don’t do out of a religious obligation or because others are doing. Rather be led by God’s Holy Spirit.
Most times we see the Holy Spirit leading men, or instructing men clearly to go on particular mountains and wait on God in the Bible.
Beloved, build your own mountain in your abode, build a secret altar and meeting place with God, offer your sacrifice of time, praises, and your body to Him daily right on that altar. I tell you, you’ll be amazed at what God will do to you and through you.
We become more like Him as we tarry more with Him.
God bless you and be gracious unto you.
