“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what He is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in Heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.” (Rev. 2:17 NIV)
“For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:3 NIV)
We can never be and will never be completely happy or at rest until our greatest desire is for Him. There are treasures — manna hidden for us — in the heart of God. There is an expression of who we are that only He knows. The only way we can know our true selves is by spending time with God. Much of what God has for us will only be found in the secret place. When we take time to look into the eyes of the Father, He shows us what He sees and how He sees. He is moved by our pursuit of Him and shares His heart. Like a father with a young child, He wants to show us the wonders of His Kingdom.
He is waiting for you to draw near. You are His beloved one. Make time for Him this week. Be intentional about giving your heart to Him in the secret place. Ask Him what’s on His heart, and ask Him how He sees you. He can’t wait to share His perspective with you.
Our God Hears,
