The Secret Place – Part 4
Ps 91:1 – He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. NKJV
There has been this recurring thought that the Lord has brought to me several times over the past few weeks. It has found its way into everything I have been teaching lately. The thought is this,
“The principles of the Word work at the highest level of efficiency through close fellowship with the Lord.”
“There is no true victory without fellowship with the Lord.”
In thinking about 2019 and all the good teaching and Word that we have heard and looking at 2020 and thinking about the prophetic words that have been spoken over the Body of Christ and over our church here, I realize that God’s intent in teaching and declaring is not to produce principled robots of obedience but rather those who through fellowship express His nature and desire in the world where He has stationed them. God desires fellowship and that is why He has given a “Secret Place” to every person on the planet.
In this series, we are going to look at some ways to have and maintain close fellowship with the Lord.
Part 4 – In our series, we now enter into principles of entering and staying in the secret place. We see in James 4:8 – Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Draw near means to approach or join one thing to another. I know positionally Christians are one with the Lord but in the area of the soul, they can be very far away. Drawing near to the Lord has to do with putting your mind on Him and honoring Him with your mouth and actions in worship. You will be blessed as you apply this truth.
