God is at work on your behalf to answer your prayers and launch you into the destiny He has for you.
I am constantly on the lookout for people who operate in the new move of God’s Glory. Joe Joe Dawson is one who has broken through into this new Glory where “ALL things are possible!” He has even experienced the visible, tangible Glory cloud of God! But just as important, he teaches you how to move in the same Glory or greater by developing an intimate relationship with God in the “secret place.”
If we could learn the power of the secret place of prayer, we would value our private time with God. Then we would begin to see things shift in our lives. Your relationship with God is dependent on how much time you are willing to spend in the secret place. God is always willing. He’s always ready to have fellowship with you.
Many years ago, I asked God, “When a couple falls in love, they have ‘their’ song. Can You and I have ‘our’ Scripture?” I felt the Lord say, “Mark 1:35.” I had no idea what that Scripture was. It says, Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He [Jesus] went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Right away, I knew I was being called to a lifetime of early morning prayer in the secret place.
Every day I get up early and focus all of my love and attention on God. Consistency is key to a long and powerful relationship with the Lord. We must be willing to follow Him at all times and at any cost. When we spend that quality time with God daily, His desires become our desires and His dreams become our dreams. He will start to unveil His plans to us in the secret place.
Another verse that describes the secret place is Matthew 6:6: But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
These two Scriptures talk about getting alone with God. They teach us the importance of finding a quiet and secluded place to focus our hearts on the Lord so that we can hear Him in a personal intimate way.

Ready to Attack the Day
Let me give you an example of what my secret place encounters look like. Early in the morning I start with thanking the Lord for all He has done, all He is currently doing and all He is going to do. I pray in the Spirit for an hour or more and clear my mind. Then I meditate on those things that are true, noble, just, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). Then God’s peace comes over me. As I spend time with the Lord, He gets my spirit man in the right place. He gets my mindset fixed right.
When I come out of my prayer room, I’m ready to attack the day. Many times, as I meditate on the Scriptures, the Lord will even show me something that is going to happen that day. And when it happens, it does not catch me by surprise.
Just One Thing
In my daily pursuit of God, I am searching for one thing—Him. Psalm 27:4 tells us, One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. As I pursue Him, God reveals more of His destiny for me. I seek God more and more daily so I can know more about His personality and characteristics. When I do this, He responds by telling me more about who I am and all that I’m called to do.
Many in this season are looking at their own outward circumstances or what is happening in the world and wondering what God is doing.
I want you to be encouraged! God is at work on your behalf to answer your prayers and launch you into the destiny He has for you. He is about to unveil what He is doing; you just cannot see it yet. God is also moving and shaking significant realms of influence on the Earth and we will soon see the great unveiling of what He is doing!
As we seek first the Kingdom of God, things will start to flow and function properly in our lives. Then our confidence will rise in our relationship with Him. Out of that confidence we will function in the giftings and grace He has given us, start to dream God-sized dreams and walk in our prophetic destiny.
Finding Our Destiny in the Secret Place
Psalm 91:1 says that we can dwell in the secret place of the Most High. The word “dwell” means to live, set up, establish, build or reside. This Scripture describes those who have made up their mind to live their entire lives in the presence of God, in that place of communion with Him. We know that secret place means the place of prayer, where it’s just you and the Lord. The verse goes on to say we can abide under the shadow of the Almighty. “Abide” means to live in or be found completely in something. We can daily dwell and abide in the presence of God.
When you’re in God’s presence, all your worries, cares, fears and doubts melt away. As you remove every obstacle that holds you back from aggressively pursuing your God-given destiny, you have freedom to run after all that is in your heart. This Scripture invites you into a lifestyle of God’s presence. When you build a strong dwelling place of prayer and daily communication with the Lord, you are truly hidden under His shadow, abiding in all of His power and love. Every day when we establish ourselves in the place of prayer with the Lord, we are setting ourselves up to advance the Kingdom of God as we operate in His Glory that day.
When you live out of daily encounters with the Lord, everyone around you is going to be impacted. You will act and talk differently because you are different. You will be living your life from the place of communion with the Spirit of God. When you are established in the secret place with God daily, you proceed with revelation from the Lord instead of natural wisdom. Your countenance will show you have been with Him. The Lord speaks the deep things to the people who are found in His presence. These daily conversations with God unlock the mysteries that get you closer to your God-given destiny.
Don’t wait! Start your secret place encounters with God today!

Dear Mishpochah (Family) By Sid Roth
After talking about the next move of God’s Spirit for so many years, I have a prophetic picture inside of me that is as real as if I had seen it with my natural eyes. It reminds me of a story I heard about David Yonggi Cho, who had the largest church in the world before he was promoted to heaven. As a young man David went around telling people about his brand-new red bicycle. The bicycle was ONLY in his imagination, but because he could “see” it and had told so many people about it, he actually believed he possessed it.
Finally, his friends surrounded him and demanded to see his bicycle. Then, God gave him an amazing answer. David said, “I am pregnant with the bicycle! It is growing in my stomach!” In other words, he was acting in perfect faith, believing before it manifested in the physical realm.
That’s the way I feel about my picture of the greatest move of God’s Spirit in history! This move will not fade away or fossilize into another “religious denomination.” Instead, it will continue until Israel becomes the leader of the nations of the world and Jesus rules and reigns! It will prepare the people for the return of the Lord! I call it the Global Sunflower Harvest Glory Revival!
My heart’s desire is to see all Israel saved, which will form the One New Man (Humanity)—Jew and Gentile, One in Messiah. This creates a NEW species of being, called the “Complete” Body of Messiah, which will trigger the greatest harvest of Gentiles ever! To accomplish this, my assignment is to demonstrate, speak, teach, and to host and produce television shows about the Kingdom of God that will air 24/7, covering the Earth on our two television networks.
As I write this article, we are negotiating to be the first in the United States to purchase the most advanced television technology that exists! This is so revolutionary that we expect it to be cutting-edge for the next ten years! It will allow us to display our television sets on video screens that will look more real than if we constructed them in our studios. Since we have 39 original television shows at various stages of production, we have great need for this new technology!
More Good News!
Revival has broken out in many places of the world. We are witnessing the visible and tangible Glory in our television studios! God’s Presence is getting stronger each TV shoot. Many are reporting seeing the Glory cloud or fire or angels and feeling the Glory in our studio. I will not be satisfied until believers and nonbelievers alike start seeing and feeling the Glory coming off their TV screens 24/7 as they view our networks. Healing miracles and salvation will flow like a river into the homes of the world!
At our most recent TV shoot, all three guests operated in the Glory, including Joe Joe Dawson, a pastor from Texarkana, Texas. The visible, tangible, Glory is manifesting in his church services. The Glory is so strong, pastors come from other churches—not to hear Joe Joe, but to hear clearly from God! God unloads revelation for their future messages in that Glory atmosphere. Business leaders are hearing God ideas as they soak in the Glory. Even the children are operating in the Glory! Joe Joe teaches how to live in the Kingdom of God while on Earth, fulfilling the Messiah’s prayer in Matthew 6:10: Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. He teaches the necessity to have a Kingdom mindset. Positive thinking works until your first crisis! But Kingdom Glory thinking is LIMITLESS! Joe Joe says anything he can do, you can do better. The Glory pours out of him wherever he goes. Why not? The new tabernacle that houses God Himself is our physical bodies!
