IIntroduction

The aim of this message is to help members to value and develop a quality time with God personally.

I) What is a Secret Place?

1. 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 (Is. 8:17).

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

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

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

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

6. It is a place of Revival and Restoration (Ps. 23:2)

7. It is a place of conformity (2nd Corinthians 3:18, John 3:30)

8. It is a place where we submit our will for the Father’s will (Matt. 26:36-39)

II) Why do we need the Secret Place?

1. To renew our strength (Is. 40:30-31)

2. To gain more access to Light. (Exodus 34:29, Ps. 34:5)

3. To be cleansed from filthiness (Is. 6:4-7)

4. To become conform to the image of Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:29)

5. To be protected from the enemy. (Psalms 91)

III) How to build/develop a Secret Place.
