Create a space to commune with Him

What I suggest in our search for devotion with our Beloved is a private place that enables the seeker to escape the chaos of social input. Do your best to be alone with Him. This could be very difficult for those who live in crowded, small places, but the space within you can always be a secret place of sharing with the Spirit.

Devotion time does not rigidly have to be in the same place. My two preferable spaces are my office at work and a prayer room that I had consecrated at home.

At work, I am able to close my door and control my time, which many cannot do. Some people tell me that they sit in their car for a while after work to get a little quiet time. In a car, some people play uplifting music while they pray.

At home, my prayer room has lovely crosses, myrrh scented candles, music and shadows from the trees out back. The more that I seek God and worship there, the sweeter the atmosphere grows.

Many of todays homes have man caves, recreational rooms, offices, and music rooms for the activities that people enjoy. If we set aside time and money to give to our Prince, why not space as well? If you are able, consider this option; create a space to seek God that will thicken the depth of His presence in your home. It does not need to be a whole room, but could be a corner, porch, a chair or walk in closet. Pray over your space and call on the Holy Spirit to abide with you there. I had some friends and a minister come pray over mine. We ate, sang to the Lord and big-candlehad a wonderful time.

When I have been negligent of my prayer space, I sense my Jesus waiting for me there and I am compelled to visit Him. This becomes a place for intimacy with Him.

Prayer: Lord, when You fill a space, You bring such sweetness. Come, fill this place that I commit to you. Rest here. Consecrate it to yourself. Do the same within Me. Let me be your little room where we abide together. Consecrate me to yourself, too. Rest within me, Holy Spirit. Amen
