Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 6:6 (KJV); But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Anyone who desires to walk in the true patterns of prayer should understand the God that is in secret.
Often times, we speak of the secrecy of our closets but not the fact that the God we approach in this secrecy is also “in secret.”This is why our theme scripture speaks of praying to the father who is in secret.
God too has a secret place, as such, the scriptures speak of the secret place of the Most High.
The God in secret seeks to narrow your world to Him alone; this is a place of nakedness, where insights into the mystery of His person are firstly understood as intimacy before they are seen as knowledge for the edification of self and others.
This means that what He reveals is a shared intimacy between you and Him before it is depth to be shared with others.
I have known men who have perfected the art of “entering in the closet.” They understand the places of private prayer and solitude but have not understood that place in private prayer that ought to open them to the secret place of God.
It is from this secret place that men drink from eternal brooks.
In Psalms 91:1, He says, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
This secret place is a dwelling; a place where one consistently remains and abides.
Child of God, closets are dwelling places. However, when you understand this secret place of God, your personal closet becomes a dwelling place and not the occasional moments of prayer.

Closets are dwelling places.
However, when you understand this secret place of God, your personal closet becomes a dwelling place and not the occasional moments of prayer.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for your presence in my life. Thank you for who you are to me Lord and for the places that you are constantly drawing me. This day, I walk in the understanding of this secret place, of intimacy, of depth and of revelation. It is where I dwell and from where I drink. Because I drink from this bottomless brook, I will never run out. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
