Leviticus 16:17
“No one is to be in the tent of meeting from the time Aaron goes in to make atonement in the Most Holy Place until he comes out, having made atonement for himself, his household and the whole community of Israel.” 
The high priest’s role was very visible and public in many ways–and yet the most important, irreplaceable responsibility he held was to be carried out in private and out of view. Public service to God is important, but the most critical things are those that happen when no one else is watching. 
There are public and private aspects to my life, the things that are seen and unseen. The way I live visibly, matters immensely–how am I representing Christ to the world? What kind of impression do people have of Christ, based on the way I serve him? And yet the even more critical things are those areas of my life that are not visible to the world around me. Do I worship Christ with the innermost parts of me? His desire is that there would be no difference between what is seen and unseen in my life.
This week, I need to be intentional to worship God daily in the secret places of my heart. 
God, thank you for seeing every part of me. Help me to daily surrender to you and serve you with every part of my being, every part of my heart.
