Word from the Mission Field

“The Secret Things”

Do you ever ask God “why,” or to reveal somethings to you and He has not done it. Just as we cannot, and do not, tell our children everything (for good reasons). There are some “secret things” that belong to the Lord, and it stays that way until He reveals them to us… maybe not even in this life.

Moses told his people, “the secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)

Yes, God gives us the “treasures of darkness” that He has kept for us… sometimes, it might be a financial blessing or something “wonderful” that just comes our way, without any pressure, or someone good has come into our life. Those are treasures of darkness that God reveals and gives to us.

But, God does not need to tell us everything, does He? After all, aren’t we “walking by faith and not by sight?” If He told us everything, we would not need “faith.” We would be a “know-it-all.” We would never have to depend on the Lord for anything.

But those “secret things,” are things that get to us. “Why God? When God? How God?” It’s really none of our business if He doesn’t tell us. After all, Apostle Paul had a “thorn in the flesh,” and he asked the Lord three times to remove it. God did not remove it and He never told Paul why. (2 Corinthians 12:7 & 8)

So today, if you have prayed and wondered, “why, how, where” and “when,” perhaps it is one of those “secret things,” that God keeps from you because He wants you to trust Him!! And I know you will! God bless you and your day.
