THE SECRET THINGS BELONG TO GOD

TEXT: DEUTERONOMY 29:29
“The secret things belong to the lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of the law”.
A secret is something known to one or very few people, God has many things that He kept from man. Every good and perfect thing comes from God. Nobody can come up with any idea, plan and invention without inspiration from God; it is God that gives inspiration for people to do things that would bring them out to limelight.
God has a lot of good idea, and revelation that he wants to reveal to His children to make them great. We need to always be in His presence for Him to reveal His great secret to us, so that we can be transported to a greater height. Many people are making the mistake of not giving the glory back to God, after getting a new idea or revelation. They see no reason why they should attribute it to God because they think it is their own wisdom that made them to think of that very thing. Our text says “the things revealed to us belong to us and our children…. This means that any idea or revelation you have is from God and is given to you so that you can make use of it gloriously for you and your children to benefit of it. Be wise to know that the idea and revelation you have now is being revealed to you by God, don’t be too arrogant to acknowledge Him so that He can reveal more ideas to you.
Amos 3:7 says the lord does not do anything without revealing it to His prophets. God tells His children what will happen in future, the gift to see vision is from God who owns all secret things. He delights in showing to us some of His secrets either through vision or dream.
Never see yourself as a “super being” if this gift is functioning in your life, ascribe the glory to Him. In Daniel 2 King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream; he called all the astrologer, magicians, sorcerers, and enchanters to interpret his dream. They were unable to interpret it because God did not reveal it to them. (This confirms that the secret things belong to God). Daniel was able to interpret the King’s dream because the lord revealed it to him. Daniel and his friends sought the face of God, and during the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision (Daniel 2:17-19). Anytime God reveals an idea to you, or use you as a channel to convey a vision to someone, always have the heart of gratitude to God. After God has revealed the dream to Daniel, he praise the lord of

Heaven (Daniel 2:19-23) don’t get carried away with the gift, always appreciate the giver of the gift.
