To Hidden Secrets
"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law." (Deuteronomy 29:29)
Secrets are a universal human phenomenon. Almost everyone has something to hide (though, of course, not all secrets are of the deep, dark variety). “For decades, secrecy research focused on the effects of concealment. But I couldn’t find any studies that systematically looked at what secrets people keep, how they keep them or how they experience secrets on a day-to-day basis.
It’s hard for people to get those secrets off their minds. Studies and research have shown that people’s minds wander to their secrets far more often than they actively try to conceal their secrets from others. And although the frequency of concealment didn’t seem to have much effect on well-being, the more people’s minds wandered to their secrets, the worse off they were.
Now, we must understand that ‘It’s not how much you hide a secret that’s harmful, but how often you find yourself thinking about it’.
Our Heavenly Father has access to all the secret things of life, He chooses to share some of these secrets depending on his preference. He provides this information to help with the fulfilment of destinies and sometimes assists to avert pending or incoming calamities.
Moses’s experience in the book of Exodus reveals some of the God-ordained means of accessing hidden secrets that are vital to success in life. In the place of prayer, Moses gained access to secrets vital to the liberation of his people.
Pharaoh was believed by the Egyptians to be the god of the earth. They saw Pharaoh as divine and as their protector. This divine Pharaoh concept was central to the continuance of Pharaoh’s life-giving reign over death, which the Egyptians greatly feared.
Pharaoh was considered a god on earth, as he was the intermediary between the gods and the people. God used the plagues to demonstrate that Pharaoh was not powerful at all and that he was unable to restore order. Because each plague addressed an area in which Pharaoh was powerful, his weakness became apparent to both Egyptians and the Children of Israel. Only the divine being can know this and this was implemented through his chosen steward (Moses).
This particular event helped people to see that God wants us to be free both physically and spiritually. Only he can reveal the secret things of this world to us, his children.
Conclusively, the two main sources of knowledge: sense and revelation, make us understand that people operate at the level of sensual knowledge and are ignorant of the other. Sensual knowledge is available through formal or informal learning which is earthly, revelation knowledge is supernatural and comes only from God. Sensual knowledge is limited, sometimes inaccurate and often leads to uncertainty, but revelation knowledge brings assurance, confidence and peace. Do you have access to revelation knowledge?
May you receive access to hidden secrets that will accelerate this fulfilment of your destiny today in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
