Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Secret Things Belong To God”
Text: Deuteronomy 29:29
“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
“The Secret Things Belong To God” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This morning Moses summarizes the renewed covenant between God and Israel with our text; beginning with “The secret things belong to The LORD our God…..”
Our God is Omniscient, He Knows EVERYTHING, yet there are some things that you and I don’t need to know so God in His wisdom holds these
things as secret things.
For instance God’s wisdom and knowledge was hidden as a secret from the devil:
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,
which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” (1Corin.2:7-8).
And God has not revealed to us all that He has prepared for those who love Him:
“But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”(1Corin.2:9).
And God will not reveal when The Second Coming of Jesus Christ will take place. Jesus said:
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” (Matt.24:37). There are some things that are too wonderful for you and to understand and comprehend.
King David when considering God’s Omniscience said:
“Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.” (Psa.139:6)
Just think about this; How does God take a sinner and make them a son or daughter of His; “such Knowledge is too wonderful for you and I to understand,” yet He does this work again and again, perfectly:
“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”
“for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”(Phil.1:6; 2:13)
The mystery of “how this is done” belongs to God; but the “revelation of scripture,” with our faith, trust and obedience, belongs to you and I.
We don’t have to understand God’s Ways we simply need to Trust and Obey His “revealed scripture,” and let the mystery of God’s Wisdom and Knowledge do His Work in our Life.
Listen up Warrior! Your Changing Life is Living Evidence that this “mysterious” work of transformation is taking place in your life every day; as you walk together with God.
And lastly, this revealed scripture “belongs” to you and I for a two-fold purpose: to Receive It, Believe It, and Apply It To our Life - and secondly, To Teach and Model It To Our Children, and Others, so they will learn to teach and model the revealed Word of God to their children.
The Ultimate Purpose of God’s Revealed Wisdom is so that you and I would Obey and Practice the Word of God in our Life.
Yes, the secret things belong to God but His Revealed Scripture Belongs to you and I, so that we will Know, Obey, Model and Teach our Children and Others How To Live a holy life. Ooooh Rah!
