Believe it or not there really is a sacred place where we can draw closer to God like never before. It’s a place where we feel safe and secure opening up our hearts to him. Where we form a divine connection, an intimacy of sorts, like non other experienced on the face of this Earth. It’s a place of love and protection that very few get an opportunity to participate in. You noticed that i used the word participate right? That’s because this level of intimacy requires our full cooperation.
Yes, of course there is the surface level stuff. But “the secret place” is a hiding space where you can rest in God’s bosom knowing beyond a shadow of doubt that he’s got you… This is a place that very few get an opportunity to tap into. One of the main reasons only a handful of us experience it is because we are so in love with the things of this world that having a tight bond with our Heavenly Father is the furthest thing from our minds. In fact, it’s almost obsolete these days.
It’s sad to say but most of us desire the things of this world over God. That’s why so many of us get cheated out of an opportunity of a lifetime. And besides, God is no doubt a jealous God. So he’s not going to allow us to double dip. It’s all or nothing with him. I’m quite sure you’re familiar with the scripture where he distinctly tells the children of Israel that they are to have no other God’s before him.
Exodus 20: 3-5- Thou shall have no other God’s before me. Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the water under the Earth. Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them, for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.
Or better still, he’s not even going to fool with you if you even so much as resemble a lukewarm temperament towards him, he promises to spit you out.
Revelation 3:16- So, because you are lukewarm- neither hot nor cold- I am about to spit you out my mouth
We all say we want God, but do we really? Let me tell you the secret place is no joke. Once you really do step beyond the veil and connect with God on this level and you start to abide there it’s really hard to go back to surface level. God promises so much, and always delivers. He really does want to take us to places in him that we’ve never gone before. But are we ready to go that deep? That becomes the even bigger question… It really does require an open heart & it will challenge you beyond human strength. That is because this magnitude of love is beyond human comprehension.
But let me tell you once you get a glimpse of it you’ll never settle for anything less. Let God take you there, to a secret place where he promises to not only love you unconditionally but to protect you under the shadow of his Almighty arms. Abide there, rest there, be at peace there. It’s a heart to heart connection that only you and God can share. Figuratively speaking, let him sweep you off your feet, let him be your knight and shining armor. Isn’t that what we all want ladies? There really is no secret formula here, but there is a secret place in our hearts that’s exclusive to God and God alone. Will you meet him there?
HE’S WAITING WITH OPEN ARMS…
