Deuteronomy 29:29 says, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us…” There are things that we may never know in this earthly journey.
Mark 4:22 says, “There is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.” The Lord knows every thought in its conception. He knows it even before we process it.
There are events in our past that caused emotional pains, traumas, fears, or upheavals. Some we processed, but the ones we stuffed still affect us. They seep into our present. Knowing this, one way I pray for myself everyday is that the Lord will open my eyes to see beyond the visual, the obvious, and the obstacles.
My friend and I were walking around 11:00 the other morning. All at once there was this high pitched screeching. My friend said, “It’s a Kill Deer.” We stopped and the momma tried to lead us away from her nest in the little rocks. She went into an incredible dance to lure us away as we peered into the rocks. We saw one egg. I took pictures. The next day we went by and she was gone. There were three eggs. The eggs looked like rocks among rocks. Yet, when I compared the first day picture with the second day, there were two eggs on the first day. We didn’t see the hidden.
There is another aspect of God’s hidden. I love these two verses in the Amplified. Psalm 25:14 says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its (deep, inner) meaning.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 says that we have not seen, heard, nor understood the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. Verse 10 says, “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”
The truth of how and why God hides things is revealed through our intimate communion with Him. It is not laying on the surface in plain sight. It is truth nested in truth. As we spend time with Him, He opens the eyes of our understanding. He reveals Himself in ways that we have never known before. When our heart is ready to receive, He will reveal the hidden.
Do you see a bunch of rocks or can you see what is hidden in them? Look for the three Kill Deer eggs. They look like rocks in rocks. This is a lesson in seeing beyond the obvious that goes with my blog
