Want To Know A Secret?
"The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant” (Ps 25:14; KJV). It would appear that God does not keep secrets. Isn't it amazing that the Almighty God would be willing to share his secrets with us mere mortals?
This is confirmed in the book of proverbs where King Solomon wrote: “For the forward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous” (Prov. 3:32). The apostle John recorded that toward the end of his ministry, Jesus called his disciples his friends (John 15:15). Jesus assured them that he revealed to them everything that he learned from his Father. Well, if we are truly following Jesus, we are also disciples and friends of his.
The disciples once asked Jesus why he spoke to the crowds in parables and he replied: "Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given" (Matt 13:11). That word mystery means a secret or something hidden to the mind and only revealed as we prayerfully study God’s word and allow his Spirit to reveal it to us. As Christians we have the Holy Spirit in us (1 Cor 6:19) and the Spirit reveals God’s word to us (John 16:13-14).
As you spend time with God today in prayer, ask God to tell you some secrets from the word and he will.
