Enter In To Your Secret Place

Being undisturbed is helpful to concentration of thought.  We need to direct our focus on what is important to FATHER.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 6:

6 “Examine your motives to make sure you’re not showing off when you do your good deeds, only to be admired by others; otherwise, you will lose the reward of your heavenly Father. 2 So when you give to the poor, don’t announce it and make a show of it just to be seen by people, like the hypocrites in the streets and in the marketplace. They’ve already received their reward! 3 But when you demonstrate generosity, do it with pure motives and without drawing attention to yourself. 4 Give secretly and your FATHER, WHO sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

Your donations to Servias are being directed to help the poor, specifically the impoverished children.  They do not know who is helping them for we have chosen to remain anonymous by utilizing intermediaries to distribute on our behalf.  As a result, FATHER will reward each of us openly.  FATHER knows who you are and responds to your gifts of Love to those kids.

When dealing with the poor, we should protect their dignity.  This is why no names are provided to those who receive our Love gifts.  Their current state of impoverishment does not need a light directed to it.  They need to be encouraged that someone cares.

5 “Whenever you pray, be sincere and not like the pretenders who love the attention they receive while praying before others in the meetings and on street corners. Believe Me, they’ve already received in full their reward. 6 But whenever you pray, go into your innermost chamber (secret place) and be alone with Father God, praying to HIM in secret. And your FATHER, WHO sees all you do, will reward you openly.”

My secret place is where I am undisturbed and can hear The Holy Spirit and hear myself think.  There are no distractions in the secret place.  It does not have to be a closet but it does need to be somewhere without inherent distractions.

The secret place is made to close off the spirit to all distractions so you can feel alone with FATHER.  HE will then speak to your renewed mind and crucified body.  Noise prevents your mind from hearing so you must do away with noise.  Loud music appeals to the flesh and keeps the person from hearing THE SPIRIT.  I am amazed that churches will promote “praise” music which is nearly deafening.  Some even hand out ear plugs for those who can’t handle the volume.

Before I was filled with The Holy Spirit, I played in a rock band and our music was loud which appealed to the audience.  They could literally “feel” the music and loved it.  Why?  It promoted their carnal nature.  After I was baptized in The Holy Spirit, my desire to play immediately left me so I quit the band and sold all my equipment.  Yes, old things passed away thus I never regretted my departure from that life.

In the secret place, we become aware of the things we often overlook hence the secret place is made for awareness between you and FATHER.  Our appreciation for those things increases and we become more alert.

In the secret place, we find out what we should be grateful for.

Beware of the cares that try to absorb you and cause your focus to be directed away from your secret place.  Jesus warned us in Mark chapter 4:

18 And the seed sown among thorns represents those who hear the Word, 19 but they allow the cares of this life and the seduction of wealth and the desires for other things to crowd out and choke the Word so that it produces nothing.

The secret place is where we have communion with FATHER which brings forth stability and peace.  If fear is gripping your heart, you need to go to your secret place until your peace is restored no matter how long it takes.  Your communion with FATHER will eliminate the seduction of wealth and desires for other things.  When you are full of The Holy Spirit, there is no room for “thorns”.

In the secret place, we get a sense of true perspective and the “temporary” loses its appeal.  We are able to see the relative importance of things in our life.  Never brood or worry over small disappointments or misfortunes for they will darken your surroundings.

Our life must be reviewed under the “light” of GOD for it exposes not only Truth but sin which must be dealt with.  We must discover the root causes which are keeping us from progressing to the next level of maturity in Christ.  This takes time and patience for FATHER will expose issues in a progressive fashion allowing us to deal with each issue one at a time.  It is like the peeling of an onion.

The secret place produces awareness and proper perspective.  It is clear that we need both in such a time as this.

In quietness FATHER speaks if we listen patiently and honestly.  Our faith is strengthened during such times.  This is where the best opportunity to hear FATHER occurs.  Enter in to your secret place often and you will not be disappointed.
