March 14, 2019 Spirit Meat Daily Devotional : Topic - HOW TO ENTER INTO YOUR CLOSET TO PRAY (3) - LUKE 5:15-16



Entering into your closet is withdrawing from distractions, withdrawing from relationships, withdrawing from interactions with people, situations and circumstances; and going to pray. You have to withdraw from the problem you want to pray about so that it doesn't destabilize you. Then you go to God and unburden your heart and pray to Him and He will hear in the secret. It does not necessarily mean that you have to go into a closet like a toilet, though you could do that. However, you must learn the principle that sometimes, ‘the closet’ is a time when you are alone. 
 
Some people have a home atmosphere that it is not possible to have this kind of a fellowship with God in the morning. Some women have a situation at home that it is only in the evening when the children are out playing or the husband has not come back from work that they can be free from distractions. They can have that time as their closet time and maximize it.
 
The devil will always attack your closet time. He will focus on the time that you need privacy with God, but at other times when people are with you, he leaves you alone. And then there are times the Holy Spirit comes to you to stir you up to pray. You need to withdraw from people at such times. Many times, to get a closet-kind of environment, you have to excuse yourself from human presence. Just say, “Please excuse me, I just want to spend the next ten minutes with God,” then go somewhere. When you begin to practise that courageously, people will respect you for it and then you'll discover that you will begin to be more powerful in prayer. 
 
 
PRAYER: Dear Holy Spirit, I permit You to call me apart in the midst of the hustle and bustle of life to a place of prayer. I receive the sensitivity to know when You are drawing me and when the devil is attacking in Jesus’ name. Amen!
