Good morning! There is something about Matthew 6:6 that jumps out to me this morning. It says, “But when we pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.” “That secret place.” Where do you go to find solitude, to get intimate with the Lord. I don’t know about you but the business of life, family and work can wear you down. Too often the pace of life has paralyzed the power of our prayers. So many times we neglect our time alone with God and we slide into a life of contentment. It seems like we are happy with just existing and getting by.
It doesn’t have to be like that! Ignite your faith this morning. I want to encourage you to find your secret place. That place where you can get alone with God away from all the distractions! That includes your cell phone! It needs to be just you and God. We all need this time every single morning. The secret place is where all pretense is gone and there is just a raw, direct intimacy with your Creator! A place where you can be honest and real with the Lord. That place where you you can cry and weep out loud.
Even Jesus needed time alone with God. In Luke 5:16 it says, ” Jesus often withdrew to a lonely places and prayed.” Jesus made it a priority in his life to be recharged by being alone with his Father, what about you? Find your secret place and allow God to fill you with love, grace and mercy! People will take notice that you have been with Jesus! Get fully charged today!!💥
