No one sees you. The silence and stealth of the night has its own special effects. We’ll hide what the light could reveal. It’s at night that the inmost recesses of the heart are laid bare. Then God comes. He shows up at the most unexpected time. Maybe even during the most unwelcome time. His visit may even be disturbing. The psalmist David expressed it like this:
You have tried my heart, you have visited me by night, you have tested me, and you will find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress. (Psa 17:3)
Invite God into the most concealed parts of your heart allow him access to the places of doubt, fear, resentment, and other things you’re not proud of.
When things are concealed within you, your relationship with God remains distant. Once it is revealed, the Holy Spirit will come and begin to transform you. Then your relationship with God becomes more intimate.
