I like secrets….when I am in the know.
I dislike secrets…when they are kept from me. 🙂
BUT….the secret of secrets can be exciting!
The word is intriguing in itself though, isn’t it?
The unknown can be exciting.
The anticipation of what the secret could be can be exciting.
The looking-forward thinking to when it will be revealed can be exciting.
In today’s world, a lot of parents have REVEAL parties identifying the gender of babies before they are born and certainly the anticipation of the reveal brings excitement. Sometimes even keeping the secret of not knowing what gender the baby is until he or she is born can be exciting as well.
So why then do we NOT have the same excitement of the secret of the future God has in store for us?
Why do we want to be in control and manipulate situations instead of leaving God to work in His way and surprise us?
In Jesus Calling devotional, author Sarah Young writes, “secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things.” Deuteronomy 29:29 says “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever so that we may follow all the words of this law.”
God has a plan for us and His secret plans are way better than ours. It’s exciting because everything God has for us is for our good; plans to give us hope and a future; plans to prosper and not harm us. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Won’t you join me today and get excited about God’s secret for our future! Be sure to keep your eyes open so you don’t miss the big reveal.
