the secrets aren't ours

"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 The secret things are God's determined, sovereign purpose. Our problem is wanting to know all God's secrets. But our responsibility is to take what God has revealed and work to understand it and implement it with all our heart--and leave everything else to God. ~ David Jeremiah

There is so much in God's Word. I've read through the Bible quite a few times and every single time He reveals something new. There is so much to learn, understand, implement. And yet, we as humans want to know more. Not just from His Word. We want to know the whole picture! Ahh, the secrets! the future! the whys and whos and hows and wheres! You know, curiosity killed the cat. Perhaps that is why none of that is revealed. If we could look into the future perhaps we would be paralyzed enough to not want to move ahead. Fear might grip us. Instead God reveals it day by day giving us the grace and strength He knows we need for the moment. The only thing we need to know is that our future is eternal and as a believer in Jesus Christ we have a heavenly destination. And that is all the information we need to unparalyze us and allow us to live in the present fully and without fear. To do the work He has given us. And to do it heartily!
