Hidden Prayer for Secret Place Visits


Hidden Prayer for Secret Place Visits

Standing strong while you wait on God to do as He has promised can be hard. The Bible speaks of it this way:

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth… (Ephesians 6:13-14 ESV)

We stand against all the enemy brings against us while we wait for God to open the door to the Secret Place. I will not explore the entire armor of God here, but the “belt of truth” is what will fuel your tank while driving toward your destiny before meeting with the Lord face-to-face. The Word of God, the Bible, is the truth. It is the first thing mentioned when describing the armor of God. We have some hidden truth about the Secret Place that we can apply here!

Aaronic Blessing

First Level

You may have heard about the Aaronic blessing, but do you know what it meant to those who initially received it. In order to understand the fullness of what God wants to give us, we need to research the section of the Bible where the blessing originated.

NOT Visiting the Secret Place

 
NOT Visiting the Secret Place

Over a year ago, the Lord told me to visit Him every day in the Secret Place to be strengthened and receive instruction. I took this very seriously and did my utmost to spend time in worship and meditation. Occasionally I’d miss a day and quickly repent.

Last month we recarpeted our entire house. For three weeks we moved everything from the rooms and pulled up the old carpet. On top of this, I decided to repaint one of the largest rooms as well. Needless to say, I was quite busy, working long into the night. Because of this, my meditation time was shortened.

Discernment: Motive Matters


But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.... to another discerning of spirits… (1 Corinthians 12:7-10 KJV)


The Holy Spirit brings gifts to help us in this life. It is critical that the full body of Christ, the worldwide Church, uses the gift of discernment for all things. The Greek word diakrisis (dee-ak'-ree-sis) is translated as discerning, but it also means distinguishing or judging. Some may be given a very strong gift of discernment from the Holy Spirit, but as a mature Christian we should all have a basic level of discerning good from evil.
