Retreat to Win
Last week I had the privilege and opportunity to go on a prayer and fasting retreat. This was the largest I had been on as 23 men gathered to worship and seek God. Included in the 23 were some very successful and might I add busy men. Their message to the young men was steady and clear... "The greatest habit a man or woman can develop in life is the habit of spending time in the secret place with God." The secret place is the place where we pray, worship, seek, and most importantly listen to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The God we serve is a speaking God and he's talking, but are we listening? We live in noisy world and unless we are intent on listening to Jesus' voice He can slowly be drowned out. "You can't skip steps to greatness" is a saying of an NBA champion coach and the most important step a believer can take every day is to spend time in the secret place.
