For many years God has shown us to pursue intimacy with Jesus as our number one goal. We were not to focus first on pursuing miracles, gifts, etc.. We have pursued these things but they were secondary. God’s goal for us has been to become Jesus’ bride. A bride is intimate with her husband by definition.
I believe tthose who have been pursuing intimacy in the secret place are entering a time when true authority is coming, authority to walk and overcome in the areas that He has assigned us to. Authority comes after intimacy because we know His heart better and He can trust us to give everything we get from our authority back to Him.
Welcome to the new season. Authority is coming. But since we have been in the secret place with Him we don’t even really care about it anymore because we have Him.
