“But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”
One of the greatest privileges we have in prayer is that we have a Father who waits for us when we pray. Jesus is our teacher in prayer. When we go to the secret place to meet with God, He is there waiting for us. God wants to be near us and spend time with us. We don’t have to be afraid that God will not be there or that He will hide His face from us. Jesus reminds us that our Father is already there ahead of us, waiting for us to arrive, and when we do, the Father will reward us.
God is a God who rewards us with good things in prayer, most notably His presence. When we come to the Father in our secret place we have the privilege to commune with the Holy One. It is in this secret place where God teaches us that ‘we love because He loved us first.’ This love that we come to know and experience changes us from the inside. To know this love is the reward God has for us in the secret place.
Today go to a private place where you can be with God. Go there and fellowship with Him. He is waiting on you.
