Interesting how many times we talk about the secret place yet forget to highlight the place. We rightly emphasis the secret element of this whole arrangement yet ignore the place. The secret place is a spiritual place where we meet God, but this is made possible if we have a physical place where all this can happen. We need to predetermine a place where we can go to and get away from the demands of life and simply focus on God. It may be a closet, a room, a corner in a room, a mountain or even a forest. The idea is a place we go to as a scheduled address for our meeting with God.
Make a date with God by dedicating time and don’t forget the place where you will meet up. Ensure it’s a place with minimal interruptions, distractions and comforts to take your heart away from your date. Every time you get into that place your heart will almost automatically lock into the purpose why you came, to meet God in your secret place. The moment you get into that place your spirit will be turned on to connect with God in a special way. Yes you may change the place every now and then, but remember, having a place will ensure you regularly go there to meet up with God.
SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm
91:1-16 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He
is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, teach me to dedicate my time for You. May I get a place where am alone with You in Jesus’ name. Amen
