Get an inner chamber in which to pray where no one knows you are praying, shut the door and talk to God in secret. Have no other motive than to know your Father in heaven. It is impossible to conduct your life as a disciple without definite times of secret prayer
Oswald Chambers addressed a beautiful part of our relationship with God. It's personal. It's intimate. It's real.
I've been reading a book by Mike Bickle that has really challenged me to reflect on my relationship with God.
There's a sweet intimacy with God that we are able to have. The Holy Spirit cries out "Abba Father" and I think many times Jesus is still asking us "Who do you say I am". What do you call Him? Who is He to you?
I know how I think of God because of who He has been in my life. Who He has been out in front of everyone and who He has been in the secret place. God, is the one I trust, He is the one I love. I rely on Him for unconditional love, for encouragement, for tenderness, mercy, forgiveness... etc.
Go to the Secret Place with God. If you don't have one already, pursue a relationship with Him that is personal. Spend time with Him to get to know who He is. Not because He has anything to offer besides simply who He is. Get to know His heart, His heart for you, for others, etc.
In that place I find a reason to live. In that place with Him, I find all that I need to keep keepin' on. In that place I can truly see the tenderness and love of Abba Father.
Spend time in the Secret Place with your Creator.
Be Blessed, J. Tate
