UV 1655/10000 The Secrets
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.
Deuteronomy 29 v 29
The secrets of wisdom and knowledge, true wealth and power, true beauty, true joy and of the future are hidden in the Lord. It is revealed to us in and through the Word. The Word, Jesus who came in flesh and blood communicates to us the secrets of heaven and the after life. The world does not change by revolution but by revelation. The secrets of the Word are the heritage of the children of God and after us our children, too will inherit the promises and be subject to the discipline of the truths of the Word. Everything is not revealed to everyone. The Lord knows what secret to reveal to whom. The one to whom it is revealed has to cherish and use it diligently and not neglect it in any way. The secrets of the Lord are not like that of the Pandora’s box that destroys but are life-giving, life-enabling and life-enriching.
The secrets are revealed to us not just to know and cherish but to follow, obey and practice in our lives. The Word will counsel us in the decisions we take. It should shape and determine the priorities of our lives. It should influence our actions and reactions. It enriches our understanding and rules over our relationships. We must strive to do all that the Lord lays on our hearts. We need to be wholehearted in our obedience to the Word. We cannot be selective in our obedience of the Lord’s Word.
The Word should saturate our minds and dominate our conversations. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to reveal the truths hidden in the Word. These truths instead of restricting our freedom as many of us fear sets us free from all our fears and all that shackles us and keeps us from realizing our full potential in Christ. The Word is like a sponge that is filled and dripping with the anointing of the Lord. The secret is not revealed at one shot but secreted drop by drop in our minds and hearts. As we soak in it, we receive the enablement and become privy to the secrets of the Lord, the secrets of the heart, the secrets of the universe, the secrets of the mind, the secrets of leadership, the secrets of good relationships, the secrets of blessing, the secrets of healing and deliverance, the secrets of success and prosperity. He uses the Word as the secret key to unlock the treasures of darkness. A treasure kept in darkness is a deep secret. It is not known to anyone. It is mystical and mysterious. It is the domain expertise that belongs to the Lord and those to whom He reveals it.
