MATTHEW 6:6_But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet…
Closet in this verse is a private room, or secret chamber. That’s a long way from a street corner.
When you fall in love, you long to be with the one you love. You want to talk – a lot! You want to make everything in your heart known, and you want to know everything in your loved one’s heart. You want to share hopes and dreams. The only way to know those dreams is to talk with your loved one.
During times of intimate communication you want to be alone with the one you love. The deepest part of your soul is meant to be revealed to only one person – the one who has captured your heart. It is not for public view, unless you are only using the other person to help you love yourself.
If you use the other person to make you look good, it may be to your advantage to have those conversations in public. Who you are seen talking with might raise your social status.
Using people to make you look good never equals love. Giving of your time serving, honoring, praising, and encouraging someone equals love.
Lord of Lords, Thank You I can talk with You about my deepest needs, wants, and desires. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ desires I talk with Him—I will express my heart!
