“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
Matthew 6:6 NKJV
My husband and I have a few restaurants we like to eat at, most of them are located in out of the way places. Not your typical chain restaurants, we like authentic and fresh made food selections, we also like the setting and the atmosphere in most of these places. Not everyone wants to take the time to find these places. And most people don’t want to take the time to get there, nor will they take the time to enjoy the atmosphere or the meal. We enjoy the drive, and take the time to laugh, talk, and just have a good time and when we are there we talk about the food, the taste, the smell, how good the food is, how enjoyable the atmosphere is, we take it all in. Isn’t it odd that most people are the same way when it comes to getting in the secret places with God. You know those places where He meets you and you spend those real moments just in His presence. Most people aren’t willing to find those places, we don’t want to take the time or even go out of our way to put ourself in a place that we can hear from the Lord. Sometimes it takes time, dedication, and placing yourself in the secret place. The place where God will meet you, no matter what is going on in the world. Find that place where you can truly receive from Him, that you can take the time to seek Him, and to know Him. Find that place that only you and God know about, that place you can meet Him and enjoy His presence, that you can taste and see that He is good.
