This scripture keeps coming to mind, it tickles me, the way our Lord works.
Deuteronomy: 29. 29.
“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
~“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God:”
What secret things?
How old is our earth and the universe?
Why did God made Global warming and Ice Ages?
Why Transfiguration, Sanctification, Justification, Mercy and Grace? Sheep and goats???
The Rapture: Is it the church or the wicked who are removed?
When is the end of the world?
Not all things are secret, the Lord has revealed many things, such as:
Why were we created?
Why give us Free Will?
~”those things which are revealed”
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
We are created and given free will, for His pleasure. His desire is to see us prosper in faith and everyday life.
Think of the pleasure we receive when we witness our childrens success, or smiles of joy.
How much more pleasure does the Lord receive when we do well and walk with Him, when we find joy in Him.
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:”
“He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:”
“He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.”
“I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee:”
He tells us, if we ask, we will receive, if we seek we will find, knock and the door will be opened.
Do we ask for and seek wisdom? No we ask for things. Do we ask for and seek His anointing?
Do we ask and seek the secret things, the things He desires of us?
What does the Lord desire of thee?
“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?“
I often wonder, what is with the ?… ???
He just told us all the rituals and sacrifices do not meet His standard. I beleive it is there to make us question what we really need do.
➤ Do justly.. Be fair, discerning, wise
➤ Love mercy.. Forgive, let it go, don’t hold on to the hurts, arrows and lies thrown at you
➤ Walk humbly with God.. learn to take His yoke, walk with Him, obeying His voice, doing His will, for His glory.
Matthew 13; Jesus said:
“I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
We need to learn to walk with Him, trust Him, rely on Him. Let the Holy Spirit reveal His will and way for our life.
“those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
Are we doing His will? Lord, help us to obediently walk with You. Amen
