When you neglect the secret place, He’s not disappointed IN you, He’s disappointed FOR you. He sees the spiritual riches available to you, and His heart breaks when He watches you get bypassed.
When circumstances or emotions are successful at robbing your secret place, don’t get guilty- get indignant! Let love-sickness arise in your breast…And then exert spiritual violence to get your priorities back in line.
Train for it like an athlete. No athlete expects to run a marathon on his first time out after being sedentary for many months. He knows he’s got to build up his endurance…Similarly, you can build your endurance to the point where spending large portions of time with Him becomes the great delight of your heart.
