DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
God is a Revealer of Secrets
Deut. 29:29; Dan. 2:22,47
The Almighty God is a God of mystery. The secrets of how He formed the world and suspended the sky (heaven) without a pillar belongs to Him. However, He does not want to keep all the secrets with himself. He also enjoys revealing some of the secrets to those who belong to Him. We must also know that what we call secrets are normal daily occurrences for God. They are not secrets to Him because He is all-knowing. Are you confused about certain happenings in your life that you do not know the cause and the way out? Then call on this God who is a revealer of secrets. Hear the testimony of Nebuchadnezzar about this God after Daniel revealed the King’s dream which was forgotten by the King “Truly your God is the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, since you could reveal this secret” (Dan. 2:47). As you pray to Him, He will reveal the secret behind the battle raging against your life to you. He can also reveal your eternal destination to you if you ask Him.
Point of Emphasis: The secret things belong to God but those things He reveals belong to us and our children.
Prayer Point: Lord, reveal to me all that will make me fulfill my God-given destiny on earth and also make it to heaven.
