Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 4:13 (KJV); Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
The closet is “loud” because it will always reveal the intensity of your communion with God.
When you stand before men, it will speak; when you receive a call concerning a dying relative, it will speak; when you meet a lame man, it will still speak.
Peter and John stood before the council, spoke with boldness and a depth of knowledge that shocked those who questioned them. Only one conclusion was drawn from this; they had been with Jesus.
They spent hours in the presence of God that it became obvious to anyone who came in contact with them.
Take this analogy: some people have specific fragrances that when they enter a room and leave it, the fragrance lingers. Someone known to them will always know that they have been in that room or are close by.
So it is with the presence of God. It’s intensity upon your life can be smelt, so much that you do not need to announce your presence. You will not need to say much. Hallelujah!

The closet is “loud” because it will always reveal the intensity of your communion with God. When you stand before men, it will speak; when you receive a call concerning a dying relative, it will speak; when you meet a lame man, it will still speak.
PRAYER: My loving father, I thank you because you have drawn me to yourself. By prevenient grace, you provoke me to deeper intimacy. Lord, you have my attention. It will never be said that I got too busy for communion with you. Today, I set my heart, my soul and my body to fellowship with you, to hear from you and to see you. You satisfy my hunger with more hunger and my thirst with deeper thirst. My days are yours and I choose to invest in that which I can never lose, which is a relationship with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
