the secret place

At Kaua`i Bible Church, we want every person to develop the discipline of a prayer time in the secret place with God. Jesus modeled it (Luke 5:16), God rewards it (Matthew 6:5-6), and the Holy Spirit fellowships with us in it (2nd Corinthians 13:14). During this fellowship with the Holy Spirit in the secret place, He gives us a bigger picture of the Kingdom of God, He helps us, He convicts us of sin, He makes us more like Jesus, He guides us into truth, He reveals to us what God is saying right now, and He anoints us with power so we can glorify Jesus (John 16:5-15). It is in this atmosphere that we develop a greater hunger to intercede for others and to make our requests known to God in prayer. Where is the secret place? It is any quiet place you can go to frequently and be alone with God (your bedroom, your closet, your lanai, a scenic place outdoors, etc.). We have developed a tool to help you learn how to have fellowship with God in the secret place. This tool is meant to provide guidelines to help you grow in this practice, not be a legalistic ritual you have to follow. Along with the guidelines we have also provided a daily journal page so you can record what is happening in the secret place. Click here to download the guidelines and the journal. We are adding one new component each week until the entire tool is filled out.

From Jeremiah 44. When God gives us a second, or third chance, don't keep doing the same thing. Heed his word. Draw closer to him and not to our old idols. Do not rebel more but repent more. Look for additional ways to come back to God and surrender to him. Understand he wants to save us. He wants to see everyone saved. Look at the destruction already taking place. God can do even more but he can also protect us just like he is now. Let go of the old ways and cling to the God who is alive and able to save us.

Please join me in praying for our island community during this time when frustration, confusion, loneliness, depression, anxiety, and even anger are starting to grow among the people as our governing authorities make decisions that seem extreme and even unnecessary for our island (with zero cases). I’m beginning to grow weary of the order to stay at home and stay away from others, and I especially miss being able to gather as a church community, which always brings me encouragement and refreshment. Please pray that the Church will have wisdom for how to “be subject to the governing authorities”, honoring our government leaders for their leadership while honoring God and His reign above all. May God be glorified in and through His Church now and always!

Jeremiah 33:26 NLT "I will never abandon the descendants of Jacob or David, my servant, or change the plan that David’s descendants will rule the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Instead, I will restore them to their land and have mercy on them.” God has not abandoned Kaua'i. He has saved this island from hurricanes and virus. He wants us to be obedient to what He asks of us no matter what we think or feel (Jer 38). Pray for His Spirit and His people to bring hope to our friends isolated and hopeless. We bind the spirit of suicide on this island. Gods Spirit is greater than depression. Let those God puts on your heart know they are not alone - Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
