4.13.2020 – He’s Creating from within the Secret Place

Yesterday, as I was tuning into our church’s Easter livestream service from my home, I realized something…

As I felt His presence hit me, right here in my home, right here within my heart, just me and Him, I realized something…

And as I watched online, I still felt a “sense of connection” and a “sense of togetherness” with the congregation, as I sang along with the worship music, and as I listened to the message from our Pastor, I realized something

The Lord is teaching us how to worship Him…from a place unseen.

He wants to create within us, pure hearts that have been developed and formed from within our Secret Place with Him. ?

He’s giving us a window of opportunity to really discover and experience His heart from within the Secret Place. Because He knows what will come from within the Secret Place, and what will flow and grow out of it…

It feels like a time of preparation, a time of being infused with preparation—His preparation.

A time that He is “creating” within each of us, a time that He is developing within us —both individually and as a whole.

He’s teaching us how to worship Him when no one else is looking, when no one else could be “observing” — where does my heart turn, when it’s only for me and Him?

No matter what I may deal with — doesn’t matter, He’s wanting to purify it.

“The true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” — John 4:23

I believe He’s teaching us, creating within us a “capacity” to have a deep “adoration” for Him, from this place, from this season.

He’s fellowshipping with us so personally, so privately.

To me, this place of “development” within the shadow of His wings sort of feels like a “cocoon.”

What will the church be like when she emerges from this place? ✨Because she will emerge… ??

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” —Psalm 51:10

I honestly, hesitated writing about what’s on my heart this morning, but it’s truly what God is doing in me, in my own heart, in my own “unseen” life.

Oh God, teach me how to really worship You from this place, create in me a pure heart so that I can worship You in a way that is pleasing to You. Cleanse what needs to be cleansed, remove what needs to be removed, purify what needs to be purified, change what needs to be changed… Lord, I so invite You to do the work that is needed to transform and purify my heart, Lord. I don’t want to miss out on what You are doing in this time, I want to embrace it.
