The secret place for the supernatural

2 Kings 4:3-4(NLT) And Elisha said, "Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Verse 5 So she did was she was told.
Luke 8:49-51(NLT) While he was still speaking to her, a messenger arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. He told him, "Your daughter is dead. There's no use troubling the Teacher now." But when Jesus heard what had happened, he said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid. Just have faith, and she will be healed." When they arrived at the house, Jesus wouldn't let anyone in with him except Peter, John, James, and the little girl's father and mother.
2 Kings 4:32-33(NLT) When Elisha arrived, the child was indeed dead, lying there on the prophet's bed. He went in alone and shut the door behind him and prayed to the LORD.

The bible says it is the testimony of 2 or 3 witnesses that establish a matter. So I am letting the word establish it for you today that when you are in a place of needing and expecting a supernatural move of God not everyone can be there to see or experience it. The atmosphere must be consecrated and full of faith as the power of God moves from the spirit to the natural realm. Other people's doubt and skepticism can choke the power of God as He moves in your circumstances. It may not make sense to others what you are expecting for God to do for you. When the woman with the dead child in 2 Kings 4 was on her way to see the prophet about the condition of her child she didn't voice to anyone. Her only word was that all is well. If people knew what you were believing for they might laugh or at the very worst think you were deranged or crazy.
Can you imagine a 100 year old man telling people that he and his old wife were expecting God to bless them with a baby?

A lot of times we have incubate our faith. We have to feed it, grow it and develop it before we announce it the WORLD. A lot of times before you can announce to others what you are believing and expecting from God you need to be fully persuaded that He will do what He has promised for you to do in your life.

Today I want to know are you there? In that secret place to experience and see the supernatural happen in your life? Or are you surrounded by doubters and naysayers? Are you being fed the word of God on a daily basis? Are you consistent and committed to having the word of God coming out of your own mouth? Now is the time for you to get there. Now is the time for you to quiet yourself and prepare yourself (as much as you can) for what God is about to bring forth into your life.

Be Blessed, Manie
