But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. – Matthew 6:6

There are two groups of Christians: a group that does not seek God and those who seek God in their room.

In Exodus 33:7 we read that everyone who sought the Lord went to the tent of meeting. Hundreds of years later, king Asa says: ‘We have sought the Lord our God; we sought Him and He has given us rest on every side’ (2 Chronicles 14:7).

While Asa was facing a great army of the enemy, he called to the Lord his God and said: ‘Lord, You are our God; do not let mere mortals prevail against You’ (2 Chronicles 14:11). And the Lord gave a mighty victory.

When the people of Israel were in need and they started to seek Him, the Lord heard and saved them from their misery. The power and victory of God’s people lay in the fact that they sought the Lord. That does not mean that there were no problems, but because they sought God and called upon Him in their problems, He always saved and helped them!

In Philippians 4:13, Paul says that God saved him from all needs. He says: ‘I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.’

Do you see how important it is to have a place where you can find God in prayer without being disturbed? Matthew 6: 6 says: ‘When you pray, go into your room, close the door.’

When we enter our room, we must also learn to close the door of our thoughts. Thoughts about your work, school or study, family, home, car, hobby or vacation. If you do not close the door of your room, you will be distracted by everything happening in your house. If you do not close the door of your mind, God will not be able to speak to you. Close the door of your room literally, but also spiritually!
