Why Have a Secret Place Which You and the Lord Share?

Ps 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. (KJV)

Our Heavenly Father talks about "the secret place" where we find a promise of protection, safety and communion with God.  It is the place where Abraham met God and spoke to him as one man speaks to another.  It is the place where every believer can meet God face to face.

Through a series of visions, my Heavenly Father has shown me that this is a very real place.  It is a place where we can meet, talk about any topic from business to raising children, and receive specific practical words of wisdom directly from God.  We can share our true feelings and fears, and develop our relationship with Him.  It is a place where our Heavenly Father can father us.

This book shows people how they can have their own secret place with the Lord, enter it daily, and receive wonderful revelation from God.

Certifed CWG Facilitator Bill Dupley shares stories which inspire faith in our hearts, encouraging us to reach out and try the things he has done to discover how they will work in our own lives.

Bill has torn down the wall between the sacred and the secular and shown how revelation does flow for all of life: healing our hearts, healing our families, personal direction, and assistance at work. And he gives us many journaling exercises, which get us started down the right path. I am grateful to Bill for this contribution to the kingdom of God. Many lives will be touched by it.

The Secret Place by Bill Dupley calls to mind the rich devotional lives of influential believers through the ages—Thomas Kelly, Theresa of Avila, Catherine of Genoa.  Bill’s “secret place” is clearly the secret to his remarkable life and ministry.  Descriptions of his personal intimacy with Father God will catch some by surprise; it will foster a fresh hunger in many, as it did in me, for a renewal of my own secret place.  Few 21st century believers demonstrate the supernatural in such a “natural” humble way in their everyday lives as Bill does.  His life is clearly a “trailer” for the kingdom.

God brought Bill and Sue Dupley into my life shortly after their conversion almost thirty-five years ago.  What a delight to witness their openness to all that God has had for them.  How wonderful to see how much they have grown through the years.  I am using The Secret Place to remind my students that all effective ministry flows from that quiet center where we sit at His feet, hear His voice, experience His touch.  Thank you Bill and Sue!

I find The Secret Place is easy reading and it shows me a glimpse into your heart.   I appreciate your honestly and your heart as you share the treasure and secret of your experience of our loving Father in heaven.  

Furthermore, using beautiful drawings to illustrate Gods messages is effective and an invitation to be opened minded.   You have captured the creativeness of God and beautifully presented His message to us.

I completely resonate with The Secret Place. I have used my imagination to initiate encounters almost every day but not as extensively as Bill describes, but I certainly will now. It is very very encouraging to read the book and was very timely for me because I feel more at peace with where I am at right now. One can always do with more affirmation.


The book has reassured and re-enforced my trust and confidence in God, that He is ever nearer than I thought. Business has not been as usual but I now know what to do. Am going to stand on my watch and listen to hear what God will say. I did so many things without hearing from God this year which never yielded the expected fruit. After reading your book I promised myself that will be the last time I will take any step no matter what without hearing from God.

I sincerely want to thank you for been instrumental to my journey on how to hear from God. You are truly a blessing to me.

Peter Sunday

This book amazes me.  Your relationship with the Lord is staggering (and enviable). It is not a long book, but it is rich and deep, and it deserves to be studied (and implemented).   

Brian Girdwood

I really find this book so helpful, am praying I can translate the teachings and insights into personal action. Your experience in hearing God's voice is very inspiring and encouraging and yes, captivating.

Alexander, San Diego

We are continuing on to use The Secret Place, Chapter 1 and simply met in the afterglow of Sunday. The presence of God has been SO powerful. We had about a dozen last night. When I left last night, all of them (ALL!) were gathered in the parking lot talking away. Sharing about The Secret Place and what they are experiencing. This has been really great to help build that hunger for God and allow the presence to just come. We have young adults, worship team people…old, kids… The Secret Place has been a real help for all of them.
