End of the year Fasting and Prayers have begun. Go HERE for more details.
I’ll like to kick-start this morning with a favorite Bible verse;
Psalm 91: 1(KJV) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I know most of us knows this verse by heart but let’s pause for a second and reflect on it together. The psalmist refers to the person who dwells in the ‘secret place’ of the Most High as the person who shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.
The secret place is a place where you commune with God alone without distractions. The psalmist made us know that God dwells in the secret place, He’s just looking for men who will come dwell with Him there so that they can abide under His cover.
There’s a place where God meets men.
There’s a place where God dwells and He’s waiting for men to come join Him there, it’s in the secret place.
Hear the psalmist describe the beauty of the secret place here:
That’s the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, The perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic. Psalm 27:5 (MSG)
The secret place is your hiding place from the hullabaloo of this world. It’s a place of rest for your soul.
It is certainly true that God’s love language is ‘quality time’ because God loves when His children spends time with Him. He loves when His children create time intentionally to spend with Him. The time when you unplug from social media, gadgets, from friends, and your busy schedule is when God loves the most because that’s when you both can converse freely with no outside barriers.
Someone once said something that, even believers knows that herbalists stay in their shrine to meet their gods but very few of us know that the Holy Spirit has a specific place where He meets people which is the ‘Secret place’. You say you’ve never heard God speak to you before? Hurry and go build a secret place, you’ll hear Him clearly there, that’s where He dwells.
Perhaps you’re wondering what you must do to place yourself in the secret place. I wrote an article on it sometimes back. You can read it HERE
Seeking God is intentional, if you don’t make conscious effort to know Him personally beyond what your pastor feeds you then you may not grow in your walk with Him. One of the beauty of building a secret place is that it creates a platform for you to know God for yourself.
You know the most amazing thing about this? When God sees that you’ve made a particular spot your hiding place for you and Him, He’ll be waiting for you there always, and on the days when your heart is too heavy to talk, or on the days when the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, you can easily drag yourself into your hiding place and spend time in His presence.
I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet. Psalm 27:4 (MSG)
We see the psalmist here describing how he loves to dwell with God in the secret place, to behold his beauty and learn at His feet. That’s the beauty of the secret place here, you get to know God for yourself when you daily go into His presence.
Let me wrap up with this. One of my guilty pleasures is consuming bananas in large quantities. I love spending time with that fruit, eating them and that’s because I love it.
In other words, I literally can’t tell you what will happen if you leave me and a sack of bananas in a room. My mouth cannot tell it all.
Where am I going this morning?
The point is, anything we love, we’ll surely enjoy spending time with it. When you claim you love someone you’ll surely enjoy spending time with them.
So when we say we love God, spending time with Him shouldn’t be an issue.
Perhaps you’re one that finds it difficult to spend time with Him, not to worry, I bring a good news your way this morning and that’s to endeavor to rekindle ourselves in the secret place. Our habits are what we carry into our future.
When we learn to build a secret place relationship with God now, it becomes very difficult to stray from Him later because a secret place relationship with Him is an invitation to know God deeper more than you already know Him. It’s an invitation into a deeper fellowship with Him. No one encounters God daily and remains the same.
When you build a hiding place for you and God to commune daily, spending time with Him becomes very easy like a piece of cake. You’ll find yourself craving to spend time with Him in the secret place always.
Remember that, anything you love, you’ll surely enjoy spending time with it. So start learning to spend time with Him in the secret place today. He yearns for that closer fellowship with you!
