Divine Exchange in the Secret Place
You are loved and highly favored by the Lord today, because you belong to Him and He lives in you. Wow! Today is the National Day of Prayer and it will be a day of days! Be sure to gather with the believers in your city to seek the Lord and call upon Him. Pray that the hearts of His people will be ignited to pray like never before. Lord, Your Kingdom Come Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven today!
I'm so excited about Matthew 6:6. Jesus instructs all who will hear today, "When you pray, go into your room and close the door and pray to your Father Who is in secret. And the Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you openly."We have access to that secret place because of the blood of Jesus, there is now no separation between us and God. Throughout the gospels we see Jesus often departing to a secret place, a solitary place to meet with the Father and pray. If we are to live as He lived on this earth, we must follow His example of meeting with the Father in secret.
As we come into our "secret place" with the Lord, we can be sure that He is near to all who call upon Him. As we draw near to Him, He draws near to us. Real prayer is calling upon God, He is our Father. In the "secret place" we will discover Him as our Refuge and Strength, a very present Help in time of need. We will know Him as we pray. Psalm 9:9-10 says that "those who know you will put their trust in You. For you oh Lord have not forsaken those who seek You." As we seek Him in the secret place we will find Him. As we yield to His Word, we will be transformed. We may come into the secret place weighed down by sin, but we can receive forgiveness, cleansing and freedom! In the Secret Place an amazing exchange occurs....... Our weakness, swallowed by His strength. Our anxiety and fear exchanged for His joy. Don't be anxious about anything, pray about everything, with much thanksgiving!. As we renew our minds to the truth of His Word, our perspective becomes clear instead of foggy. In His presence is fullness of joy. As we wait upon Him, He is our All in All, the All Sufficient One who loves us with an everlasting love. In the secret place the Holy Spirit will direct us how to pray for our family, our loved ones, our church, our city, our nation and the precious people of the nations of the world. He is our personal Teacher in prayer. Prayer is the pipeline that brings God's will to this earth and in the secret place He will teach us to pray His very will into existence All the angels are on alert waiting for the prayers of the saints so that the Father can give them their assignments to fulfill His purposes. . You can be sure He is attentive to your cry, He hears when you call. M66 Matthew 6:6 How awesome!
praying for YOU, Amy
