  Places matter to God.

 You see, God made places before He made people. Jesus knew the Holy Spirit would appear and reveal Himself in a specific place Acts 2:2-4. Jesus scheduled miracles to occur in specific places as in John 5:2-6 at the Pool of Bethesda. The instruction of Jesus to a blind man was to go to a specific place. John 9:7 Go wash in the Pool of Siloam. Naaman, the leper, was instructed by the Prophet to dip in the Jordan River seven times to receive his healing. The place of obedience.

 Rebellion to enter the place of obedience always produced tragic results as in Jonah 1. So nothing could be more important than the Secret Place where you enter the presence of God and become changed, corrected, informed and loved. Jesus often minister to thousands. Yet, when He wanted to impart and create radical change in His disciples, He pulled them aside into a place of privacy Mark 6:31. Each of us need this to come to the place we need to be spiritually. Solitude is necessary for intimacy. Intimacy is necessary for impartation.

Impartation is necessary for change. You too must move away from the voices of others to distinguish His voice. Withdraw from the crowds. Disconnect from the demands of relationships. Depart from deceptive influences.

 We need to create a private place, sanctify a Holy Place to intensify our relationship with God, Those who invest time in the Secret Place are rewarded with the secrets of God, When you spend time in the secret place of the Most High, you will become addicted to His Presence.

We need to create a private place, sanctify a Holy Place to intensify our relationship with God, Those who invest time in the Secret Place are rewarded with the secrets of God, When you spend time in the secret place of the Most High, you will become addicted to His Presence. When I delay entering the Secret Place I can almost visualize the Lord standing at the door stating “ You have not sought me today. You are trying to do everything without pursing my counsel.”

  I want you to remember, thinking is not praying, worrying is not praying, discussing problems is not praying. You need a Secret Place just for Him. As in Psalm 91 He that dwelleth in the Secret Place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. He that dwelleth, you can’t just past through, but spend time. The purpose of discipline is to birth a habit. The psalmist prayed seven time a day. Daniel prayed three times a day, Jesus, as was His custom, went to the synagogue regularly.

 Uncommon achievers do daily what common do occasionally. How long should you stay in the Secret Place? Stay long enough to receive His command for your life.

  Find your Secret Place with God.

If you have not received that gift of eternal life with Him, then pray this short prayer to the One who gave us victory over death through Jesus Christ.I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus died for my sins.  I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and live as my personal Savior.  I will confess you before men, study your Word and live according to your will as you guide me.  Thank you for sending Jesus so that I might have eternal life. Your Word says in Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the hearth man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation .Amen
