Do you want to know a secret?
By Kim Larsen
Keeping a secret is a form of mental juggling, and a casual conversation can be quite complex for the secret-keeper. It may be difficult to keep track of what you’re allowed to say and what you aren’t, which can lead you to divulge information you shouldn’t. There’s also something about us that when someone has a secret, we do everything we can to find out what it is. It drives us crazy! People love a good mystery right?
God tells us in Psalm 25:14 The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him. And he will show them His covenant. Wait a minute! The Lord has a secret too? Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Both of these texts are speaking , about the sanctuary . The Shekinah glory was in the most holy place within the sanctuary on earth, a replica of the Sanctuary that exists in Heaven. God wanted to dwell among his people. The Covenant that he wrote with his very own finger was also inside the ark within the most holy place. The very character of God is seen within the Ten Commandments. To Fear (love) God is to keep His commandments. Just like any good secret, we must dig to find the truth. John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: Thy word is Truth. Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Now, there’s a secret that no one should keep!
