“When you pray, enter into you inner room, and when your have shut the door, pray to your Father which is in secret: and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you.” ~Matt. 6:6
“In secret” ~ how mysteriously beautiful; my Father, inside my inner room waiting in secret. In the deepest, quietest, places of my heart, when I have slipped away from the rush and tumult of the world around me and entered into my secret inner room that no one else knows about- no! ~No other but my heavenly Father and I.
He sees me in the secret place. He meets me there and he rewards me. My reward is the sweet communion I have with him. His voice whispering assurance into my soul, telling me secret things, sharing with me his heart and pouring out mine, knowing he understands perfectly. There is nothing sweeter than that inner room, that secret place where I meet and talk with God as friend to friend; no wait, he draws me even closer… closer… he calls me his child, his daughter. He calls be by my name. I am his and he is mine.
He meets me there in the secret place – at any time. Sometimes he bids me there. Sometimes I come seeking him there.
But always, assuredly, in the secret inner room, when I have entered in and shut the door . . .
