Anchor Bible Verse of the Day on Secret Things
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.Deuteronomy 29:29 (NKJV)
This verse reminds us that there are certain mysteries and knowledge that belong solely to God. These are the secret things.
However, what God chooses to reveal is accessible to us and our descendants, allowing us to follow His laws and teachings.
It highlights the importance of cherishing the wisdom and guidance God shares with us through His revealed truths.
- Secret things: The hidden or unknown aspects that are known only to God.
- Those things that are revealed: These are the truths, knowledge, wisdom, and teachings that God shares with humanity through His Word.
Reflection on Secret Things
Today’s theme of secret things invokes a sense of mystery and intrigue. The truth is, we all know it’s human nature to be curious, to seek answers to life’s most profound questions. At times, some believers are even moved to ask if there’s indeed God, due to certain mysteries going on around them.
The verse from Deuteronomy 29:29 offers a unique perspective on this curiosity.
In our walk of faith, we often encounter moments when we grapple with questions beyond our comprehension:
- Why do certain things happen?
- What is the meaning of suffering?
- What does the future hold?
Beloved, these are the secret things, the mysteries of life that belong to God alone.
In Ecclesiastes 3:11 we read:
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
This verse suggests that there is an inherent curiosity within us, a longing to understand the divine plan, even though we may never fully grasp it.
However, the comforting aspect of Deuteronomy 29:29 is that while some things remain secret, God graciously reveals much to us.
In fact, He provides guidance, wisdom, and His word as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119:105).
It is through these revealed truths that we can understand and follow His commandments, for there is beauty in recognizing that not all answers are within our reach, but some are reserved for God alone.
It reminds us of Proverbs 25:2:
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Today, as you reflect on the mysteries of life, consider the knowledge and wisdom God has graciously shared with you since you were born.
Think about the revealed truths in His Word that guide your path and bring clarity to the secret things you may encounter.
In a nutshell, in our quest for knowledge and understanding, we must also acknowledge that there are divine secrets that we may never fully comprehend.
Note that this doesn’t diminish the significance of seeking wisdom but rather encourages us to humbly submit to the greatness of God.
It’s my prayer that while you may not have all the answers as to why certain things happen to you, and why despite your faithful and honest prayers answers are not coming, you have the privilege of knowing the One who does.
