Your Secret Place
My description of a secret place is a place where you run to meet the Lord. A place that is wrapped in prayer, and warmth. A non judgment zone. A place where no one exists except me and the Lord. More like my home. Filled with pillows, bibles, journals, pens, blankets, and coffee. My place of peace!
Now let’s take a look at what the Lord says about your secret place.
1. Go into your room: I know everyone has seen war room. If you haven't what are waiting for? A closet was their war room, but it does not have to be a closet. It can be your bathroom, living room, laundry room, your car ( my second place to get down in prayer), or the kitchen. You place is your place, but you have to go to it!
2. Close the door: Why do you think he said close the door? He says that so the noise, and distractions will not make their way in. You tune them out once that door is closed, your focus is on Him!
3. Pray to the father who is unseen: I love this because if you think about in the natural you are in that place alone. I believe going into a secret place and spending time with God raises your faith. You know He is not there, but you know He hears your prayers. You know He is not there, but you are talking to Him as if He is right in front of you. It also raises your expectations! You want to have an encounter with him.
4. Then you father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward: Your reward is a relationship with the Lord that grows every time you spend time with Him. An exchange takes place when you seek Him. His power transfers into you. His spirit fills you. His wisdom drops into you. His voice calms you. His glory is seen! That is one heck of a reward if you ask me!
You need this alone time with the Lord. His presence is all you need. I used to make it so complicated. When all the Lord wants is for you to come to Him. You don’t even have to say anything, just sit and bask in His presence. You can cry, you can talk, you can laugh, you can vent, you can pray, you can read, you can write, you can listen to music, you can sing, you can dance, and you can be FREE! A sweet exchange is waiting for you in your secret place today. Go in there expecting to have an encounter with God like never before. Don’t hold back, just worship the Lord!
I have a prayer I say every time I step into my inner chamber (my secret place). The Lord told me to share with you. Even your secret place needs to be basked in prayer! Here you go :)
For those who are saying "Le'nae I don't know how to pary." I have not excluded you. Here is a prayer that my grandmother taught me as a kid. It is The Lord's Prayer.
Praying that your place of prayer be on fire tonight! I love you. Have a great evening!
