1. What is a Secret Place?

i. It is a secluded place where one can personally have intimacy with God. God is everywhere, but, He does not meet with people everywhere. In salvation, God manifested Himself to all men. Titus 2:11. But, in our intimacy and walk with God, He hides Himself in the midst of Light. 1 Tim. 6:16. Hence, we must seek Him. Isa. 8:17

ii. It is a Place of Illumination, where destinies and purposes are revealed.

iii. It is a personal altar of prayer. It is not necessarily a Physical location but a spiritual state.

iv. It is a Place of encounter and angelic visitation. Gen. 32:24-30

v. It is a place of rest. Rest from the pains and troubles of this life. Matt. 11:29, 1st Peter 5:7
