UV 2907/10000 Secrets of Life Uncovered
The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
Psalm 25 v 14
When we reverence or respect the Lord and are devoted to Him, He reveals His secrets to us. He reveals the details of His covenant, covering all the promises related to our deliverance, healing, blessing and salvation. The covenant is what facilitates and governs our relationship with the Lord. He does not hide anything from his friends. The Lord reveals certain secrets relating to different aspects of our lives through His word, through the prayers of others.
Scripture says that the secret things belong to the Lord but if we need to know it, He will reveals aspects of His character to us through various life situations. He will reveal the secrets of His love, His grace, His power, His mercy to us through our personal challenges and problematic situations. He does not prefer to remain an enigma but loves to relate to us as a man with his friend. This is one of the reasons He reveals secrets about even the future through dreams like those of Joseph, visions like those of Ezekiel and prophecies like those of Isaiah.
Another dimension of this uni-verse is that there is a hidden promise in that it means the Lord reveals certain secrets of creation, of invention, of nature to His chosen ones. Individuals through history have been given the secrets of science and technology, of philosophy and psychology as they persisted with faith and reverence for the word of God. The reverence of the Lord, the resultant wisdom, the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the intense study and application of the word of God are the keys to reveal these hidden secrets of life, of nature, of knowledge. As we stay in constant and intimate communion with the Lord, He would open our spiritual eyes to see the secrets, unlock the doors of intuition and deeper understanding. There are secret treasures that He opens our eyes to recognize which could be a new idea, an invention or innovation. There are secrets of the past, secrets of the present, of the future and of eternity that He holds and reveals as His sovereign will decides. The Lord revealed to Abraham the fate of Sodom before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah took place. He revealed to Abraham that he would be honoured as the father of faith. There are secrets of heaven and of earth that He reveals. Some aspects of our relationship with the Lord are to be kept secret between the Lord and us even as there are secrets between a husband and a wife that they alone share. He revealed to Paul the teachings that he expounded to the early church. He revealed to John the mysteries of the book of Revelation. Whenever a secret is revealed by the Lord, it is for a specific purpose in alignment with His will or as He is pleased with the faith of an individual or as He wants to warn some person or group of persons.
