Q & A of the Secret Place

My Secret Place
My Secret Place

Over the years, I have been approached by several people who truly love God. Their questions have always been the same – “How do I get closer to God”, and the simple answer to this question is this… enter into the Secret Place!

Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

If you are reading The Q & A of the Secret Place, God is calling you deeper into Himself and He desires for you to become transparently intimate with Him!

First I would like to congratulate you on the relationship that you have cultivated thus far with God your Father the Creator of heaven and earth, Jesus Christ your personal Lord and Savior, and Holy Spirit your Teacher and Comforter.

The secret place is the place where we meet with God. Even though it is a physical place it is important for us to understand also, that the secret place is primarily within our spirit. God is training us to carry His presence and Glory with us everywhere we go (abiding). This is learned in the secret place of God.

Okay now, let’s get to it. On July 21, 2014 at approximately 4:23 pm I was, guess where? Yep, you guessed correctly. I was in the secret place of God.

Holy Spirit has begun to speak to me about questions that He would like His people to have the answers to in order to assist them on their journey to the Secret Place. Now there are only four questions and they may be simple in nature, but they are essential if we desire to develop a long lasting commitment to meeting with God in the secret place. Each question has been asked by each of us at some time or another in our walk with Jesus (Christ), and if not addressed, our prayer life can take some unnecessary detours, and exhibit inconsistencies that will leave us unfulfilled.

The questions and answers are as followed:

1. What time of the day do I meet with God?
This really depends on your schedule and your level of discipline, each believer’s meeting time may differ some. My primarily meeting time with God is as soon as I wake up, but there are times when He will call a meeting (special meeting) when I am at work, during those times depending on the situation I withdraw to the restroom to meet with Him since our ultimate meeting place is in my spirit. The meeting spot can be anywhere, so I carry a pen and small notebook with me wherever I go. If He calls a meeting while I am in my automobile I utilize the audio recorder on my phone. I make sure that I make myself available to Him every moment of the day and because I now understand that He is Eternal, and he is not governed by time. I accept the fact that He may call a meeting at any time of the day or night, and it is my responsibility to show up to our meetings.

Please be led by Holy Spirit!

2. How long do I spend in the secret place?
It really depends on Him; He is the one who calls the meetings, so He is the one who dismisses or closes the meetings.

Please, be led by Holy Spirit!

3. How do I know when the meeting/prayer time has ended, if there is no set time?
Well, once again, being that I didn’t call the meeting I wait until God is finished. When the meeting concludes, Holy Spirit gives me a dismissal check in my spirit. And if I attempt to leave the secret place before He dismisses me, He’d let me know that as well, in my spirit. (It feels like a restraint.) And sometimes, and  if I am not sure, I will ask Him. He will let you know!

Please, be led by Holy Spirit!

4. What do I do during our meeting?
Well, since it is not my meeting, I do not come to the meeting with my own agenda. Holy Spirit always brings His agenda to our meetings and we follow that, but I do keep the minutes of our meetings (take notes) it is my responsibility to read the minutes at the beginning of each meeting, but sometimes He’ll have me go back and read the past entries from days or even weeks before.

I had to learn to be disciplined to fall back and ask Holy Spirit what it is He wants to discuss, or what is it He wishes to get accomplished during our meetings. Our meetings vary from day to day depending on Him. For example: God may want me to pray for others with me periodically praying in my supernatural language, worship Him in song and dance; read His Word (Bible); read a devotional or an assigned book; or just sit in His presence quietly with neither one of us speaking just enjoying each other’s presence, or He may also request for me to take communion with Him. It really depends on Him, He calls the meetings.

Please, be led by Holy Spirit!

I personally believe every believer should invest in communion (wafers & Juice} – that’s just me. It will be a great investment in your Relationship with Jesus Christ our Messiah!

I pray that the above Q&A helps you in some way, in your quest for greater intimacy with the Lover of your soul. (Song of Solomon 3:2)

In conclusion, you are an individual, God desires to commune with YOU, be aware of attempting to duplicate someone else’s relationship with God, please allow Him to do a new thing with you! Your relationship with Him is special and unique.
