God's Mysteries

November 1, 2017

Mysteries, whodunit movies…I love figuring out things.  There is just something about uncovering something hidden before anyone else does.  Of course, when Bible time with my children comes into play, and we are delving into Revelation—there is often a cricket chirping in the background when it comes to figuring out exactly what is going on in any certain chapter. 

 

I enjoy reading a passage of Scripture with them and feeling the Lord aid me in elaborating and dissecting it, so that they have some deeper understanding.  However, the last book offers a particular challenge.  There have been multiple times that I have had to look at my kids and say that I don’t really know what this means. 

 

But I want to know.  For example, we recently read chapter 10 in which seven thunders speak, yet John was told not to write down what they said.  I want to know what they said!  As I read this with the kids, it stirred in me to maybe not feel obligated to explain the Scripture but to urge them to be hungry for the mysteries of God.  To urge them to want to know.

 

I think of when Jesus spoke in parables to the people, yet when He was alone with the twelve He explained things to them, telling them that it was given to them to know the mystery of the kingdom of God.  I think of Paul saying to regard them as those entrusted with the mysteries of God. 

 

Can the Lord trust us with the mystery?  Whom do you trust with your secrets?  You don’t just reveal everything to everyone.  Trust must be earned.  We must prove faithful. 

 

Truly, it is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but it is the glory of kings to search it out—let’s be hungry enough to search.

 

Father, it is so special when You reveal Yourself, Your Word, Your hidden treasures to me.  Nothing quite compares to it.  I want to know You more and more.  May my motives be pure in this, not just so that I can tell others cool things that You have shown me.  I want to know You because of who You are.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.
