“Prayer is not bombarding God with your problems, prayer is taking your heart to God. -Kunle Zakariya”
In the last series, we looked at the ALONE WITH GOD. We saw that prayer is not just tendering our needs to God but to seek a fellowship with the Lord. We saw how Jesus was in fellowship with the Father seeking His face and having a all night with God. We shall continue this series by looking at
- IN THE SECRET PLACE WITH GOD
The secret place is a place where we meet with the Lord. It’s a place where we are being watered with the word of life. Our hearts must be involved and our spirit must be connected while our soul is not taken away by the lust of the earth. David was one man that was found in the secret place of the Lord, he understands it he was always found there.
Psalms 91:1 He that DWELLETH IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
This scripture starts with the word “He” this does mean a male man but man(both male and female). It’s says he that dwell. The word “dwell” means to “stay or abide or to tarry” So he that dwells, stay, abide or tarry in the secret place… The secret place had to be mentioned of: of the Most High. You see, when we come to pray to God, we must understand that we are in the presence of the Most High. We know what happened to Moses when he found that presence of the Lord, we know what happened to Paul when He met God even His light. The secret place is a place where man is being changed to become all that the Lord desire him to become. The secret place is a part where the immortal being meet with the One who is Immortality in light. God has never leave a man the same in the secret place. We must begin to have encounters in our secret place. Is not just to come to church alone to have encounters before God, but we must enter into God in our secret place and have encounters there. Secret place is called a place of encounters. Encounters ought to be happening to us. Then David continued by saying that he shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. We have looked at abiding in Him. The secret place is also a place of abiding under God.
David knew what this secret place was, he called it the presence of the Lord then he said in the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy
Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
This is worthy of note, David said something very important about this secret place. Is a place where God will show us the path of life in His presence. The secret place is a place of revelation, where things are being revealed to us. You see, when we understand that we are before God in prayers and we understand that is a place of revelation then joy comes in His presence. Many don’t see the reason to enter into the secret place to develop a fellowship with the Lord. The truth is, our ability to know God is not known and well developed in the open but in the secret place of prayer.
In next series, we shall look at BUILDING AN INTIMACY WITH GOD.
