The Secret Place


After discovery of my purpose in my thirties, I have to the realization that God continues to desire for use to go into deeper realms and dimensions in Him. Once I had a desire to know the more of God, the pursuit became a passionate discovery of know who God really is and how He desires for us to seek Him. There’s a secret place in God that He wants us to dwell and remain in order to fulfill the divine purpose He has for us to accomplish. It is a place that demands a continuous, constant and intense prayer life. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). The more you seek God, the more God takes you beyond all your five senses to a place that eyes have not seen nor ears have not heard…..”(! Corinthians 2:9). Since it is a secret place meaning it must be sought after and pursued until it is found. God was us to seek Him until He is found and reveals His Glory to you. Let’s breakdown what’s in the Secret Place. In Psalms 91:1 explains the secret place in “whoever dwells in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” This scripture explains that God looks for whoever or whomever whether it’s male or female to seek Him out. God dwells in a place that flesh cannot enter nor iniquities can be part of. People profess to want the more of God but think it is through works in the church or ministry. You cannot enter God’s Secret Place through works alone. Going through the motions of seeking God through the works of the flesh denies you access to the Glory of God which houses the anointing and the Glory of God. Just by coming to church, raising your hands, giving God the praise and responding enthusiastically to the Word of God does not give you access to the Secret Place. Doing works in the ministry and publicly through prayer, preaching and laying of hands alone doesn’t give you access to the Glory of God. These works alone are the manifestation of seeking God and abiding in the Secret Place. Works of God that bring no Glory to Him but glory to your flesh and ego are dead and unfruitful. This is why the Pharisees and Sadduccees never operated in the Power of God like Jesus did because they thought their works in the Kingdom of God granted them access to God’s Secret Place. If that was the case, why would God call it a secret place but a public place if it was so accessible to us. Then all of us would operate in the power of God and His Anointing in its fullness. Next blog is going to about how Jesus entered The Secret Place in God.

  1. This is an awesome read and right on time for where I am in my life right now. I am in my 30’s and almost in my 40’s and God is still revealing His purpose for my life to me. I have noticed that desiring more of God and seeking Him out has led me to know more of my purpose. It is through the intimate time with God that I am able to listen to His voice guide me into what plans He has for me. So many times we allow our own wants, dreams, and desires take precedence over what God has for us because we are operating in the flesh. Even though we can make some good decisions in the fleshly realm, there are still some decisions and plans that must be revealed to us Only in the spiritual realm.

    I can honestly say that if I wasn’t constantly seeking a deeper and more intimate relationship with God, I wouldn’t be receptive to fulfilling His purpose for my life. I’m looking forward to going deeper and deeper into that secret place where I can meet God and be with him intimately. I sincerely want to be used for His purpose. There are so many people in this world that need the peace of God in their lives and I want to be someone that God can truly trust to share His love with them.
    You are correct that one can’t enter the secret place of God by works alone. If that were the case, so many people would already have experienced God’s peace and love. Therefore, the world wouldn’t be such a cold place and people wouldn’t have only their best interests in mind. Many want the rewards and blessings of God, but don’t want to invest the time it takes to reach those hidden places in Him. As the word states, to much is given, much is required.
