I don’t understand everything I read in the Bible. I know I will never understand everything I read in the Bible. It’s very interesting to watch God reveal different truths to me each time I read it. Was that always in there? How did I miss that before? When God does this, I have discovered that is usually an answer to a question I have asked him.
Daniel called God the Revealer of Mysteries. As Daniel started to interpret King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream for him, he said , “As Your Majesty was lying there, your mind turned to things to come and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen.” Daniel 2:29.
There are many mysteries in our lives that we would like to have answers for, aren’t there?
Why am I here?
Why is this happening?
What am I supposed to do?
Should I go through this door?
I have discovered that God has all the answers to these mysteries. When I trust him, he reveals what I need to know when I need to know it. If I’m feeling like I need an answer right now and I don’t have it, I focus all of my attention on God and he always responds. Often I realize that God was trying to give me direction but it was so different than what I expected that I had overlooked it.
I know I’m moving down the right path when I’m heading towards God. I’m on the right road when I’m trusting that he will explain what I need to know when I need to know it.
As my trust in God grows, I have found that the number of mysteries in my life shrinks. He is always speaking to me – loving me, guiding me and pointing out my next step just at the right time – not a day early.
The Revealer of Mysteries proves over and over that he has it all under control.
Thank you, Abba Father.
