Jesus reveals two secrets about His Father (God) in Matthew chapter 6.
your Father who sees in secret (Matt 6:6)
your Father who is in the secret place (Matt 6: 6)
Jesus knew the Father very well, because He came from the Father. No one has seen the shape of the Father, no one has heard the voice of the Father, no one knows completely about the Father, only Jesus has seen the Father in His true form! (John 1:18, John 5:37)
Therefore Jesus is the right Person to tell us more about the Father. Now listen to His two statements about ‘your Father’ or ‘our Father’.
Your Father who sees in secret
God, the Father is watching you 24 x 7. He knows what your true intentions are. He knows exactly where you are coming from!
Also, in that same chapter, when Jesus teaches about prayer, He says,
For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. (Matt 6: 8)
Yes, God knows every detail of yours, even that which you don’t know about yourself. Do you know how many hairs are on your head?
Father knows! (Luke 12:7)
Do you know how long you will live? Do you know what will happen to you tomorrow? Do you know what will happen to your job tomorrow?
It is wise to admit the fact that we know only a very little. Our little brains can hold only very little information, compared to the knowledge of God. But sometimes we worry as if the whole world is running on top of our heads, right? Our foolishness! Let us learn to trust God.
This Father who knows everything about you is calling you to a SECRET WORLD, a world where only you and God exists!
Your Father who is in the secret place
In order to see God, to hear from God, to know God, you really need to get to that secret place where God dwells (Psalms 91:1). Father is present there to meet you. You will see Him once you get there.
This world pushes us to make all things public and known to all.
Share, tweet, click, like, post, upload and what not! Tons and tons of TB’s of data are being pushed online every second. The space constraints are still a huge concern for Big Companies like Google, Yahoo, etc.
In midst of all these, our Father is inviting us to His most Holy Secret place, where He wants to talk with us, spend time with us and to make known His love for us.
Don’t you want to get there?
The Secret World
Now, how much % of your life is in known to the public? And how much % of it is still in secret? You know the answer.
But here is a challenge to make atleast 3 domains of your life in secret
- Your deeds of charity
- Your prayer life
- Your fasting
If you have ever made those public, this is the time to come back to that secret place, and decide to keep it secret for ever.
If you do so, this will be your reward.
Secret world and Open Reward
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly
Yeah, let it be top-secret! Your secret communication with God, your secret petitions, your concerns, all what you say and do there in that secret place with your Father is well appreciated by the Father. And He will make sure that He reward you with the best gift ever, that too, openly, so that all can see it.
You don’t wanna miss it? Right?
All you need to do is: Go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place
Shut every other doors of your life (your WhatsApp notification, alerts, alarms, and so on). Better put your gadgets in flight mode, and take a flight to that secret world.
Decide today to start exploring the secret places of the Most High God. Maintain the secrecy of the world where only you and God exists. When He rewards you openly, you will run back to that secret place to express your gratitude to your Father.
Those who enjoy the secrecy with the Father will never want to reveal it, because as long as it remains secret there is a joy in keeping in secret knowing that your Father really appreciates it!
