If You Are Wise

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”  Genesis 2:15 NKJV

Each of us should set apart a special “place” (Garden) in which to commune with the Lord.  This prepared place should be an area within our home that is both dedicated and decorated to be conducive to His presence.

“But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, (this set apart place that you have created for the Lord) and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father, who sees in secret, shall reward you openly.”  Matthew 6:6

If you are wise you will find a place in your home to be consecrated for this higher purpose. It can be a room or part of a room or simply a chair that you have chosen and set apart as a special place for prayer and communion.  This requires an action your part to establish this “garden” (closet).  Then, you can invite the Lord to come and commune.
