“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.”
Recently, I arrived at the church, only to discover that since I drove a different vehicle than usual, I did not have my key. First, I was frustrated at myself, then I looked for someone else to blame, and finally, called one of the other pastors to come open the office for me. When I got in, settled down, and began to unpack my bag, I discovered the key was in my bag all along. I had simply failed to take the time to look for it. Had I dug through the bag, I could have saved myself a lot of wasted time, energy and frustration.
Moses explains that the secret things of God have been revealed to His children and as a result they belong to us. These secrets include His guidance, His provision, and even His power. As a child of God, we can access God and receive from Him, even when we are facing the darkest moments in life. Like the key tucked away in the bottom of my bag, the promises of God are hidden in the pages of His word. Sometimes, they are hidden right on the surface, and all that is required is to open your Bible and begin to read. I wonder how often you have walked into church and felt as though the songs or the message was written just for you? That same experience will be found daily, if you will take the time to traverse the pages of your Bible. The secret things of God belong to you, take the time to get to know them.
