Man always looks at the outwards appearance but God looks deeper. People only look at tall buildings and admire them but what they don’t see is the foundation. Its standing tall because of its roots, its foundation has gone deeper.
Your hidden life, your secret life is very important. This is the real you.

Mt 6:18 “so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
God is interested in our secret lives. You must gain victory in your secret life first

Irrespective of your age
Irrespective of your social status
God will always correct you secretly first
Ps 1:1 ¶ Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
