Is It a Secret?

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 this law.” (New International Version)  God has revealed Himself in creation, in His Word, and through His people.  Nevertheless, His thoughts and ways are incredibly higher, wider, and deeper than the human mind can even imagine, let alone grasp (Isaiah 55:9).  The knowledge of even the greatest human minds is like one grain of sand amid the entire mass of matter in the universe compared to God’s understanding.  Romans 11:33 says, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” (New American Standard Bible)

Nevertheless, God has revealed to us all we need to know and has given us everything we need to live for Him.    “As we know Jesus better, his divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life. He has called us to receive his own glory and goodness!” (2 Peter 1:3 New Living Translation)
