What the Bible refers to as the “secret place” is a place where you get alone with God and spend time in fellowship with Him.
The secret place has 2 dimensions:
The physical secret place
Any space where you go to meet with God. It could be an office, your house, your bedroom, or your closet. Somewhere you can have a bit of privacy where you can spend alone time with God.
The secret place of the heart
It is that spiritual space where your heart actually connects with the lord very deeply in a really intimate way. Where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you met with God. Your heart overflows with God's presence and you are lost in a world not visible to the human eyes.
The challenge is that, you can go into your physical secret place, yet you have not gone into the secret place of the heart. Where intimacy with God is birthed and built.
Psalm 91:1 KJV
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91:1 is not in any way, referring to the physical secret place. It is referring to the secret place of the heart. Where communion and depth between man and God takes place. I know this because you can't dwell in the physical secret place forever. Dwelling means staying there. Not visiting and going. In the physical secret place, you can stay there for hours maybe even days but at some point, you have to leave, but a person can dwell in the secret place of the heart forever. That's a start of perpetual consciousness and communion with God. That's where your heart is deeply connected to God.
Ask yourself, which of the secret places do I do more of?
Am I the type that: A. Do not have a consistent secret place life?
B. I definitely have a secret place life but I have more of a physical secret place connection with God than a consistent heart connection with God when I go there?
C. I Have a consistent physical secret place but I also consistently have a secret place of the heart connection with God? My devotion times are moments of deep communion and intimacy with God and that presence envelops me all day long. The C option is where you need to be. Lift it in prayer before God, ask the holy spirit to help you become a dweller of the heart secret place.
