The Secret Things
Posted on April 2, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call
The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29
We have many questions – why is there cancer? Why is there Alzheimer’s? Why are there floods, hurricanes and typhoons? Why do children die way too young? Why do some reject Christ and chose hell? Why? Why? Why?
There are some things, indeed many, many things that in our humanness we do not, cannot understand – the secret things belong to the Lord. Knowing that God is sovereign and good, not just sovereign and not just good, but both sovereign and good, we can believe, trust, and rest in knowing God knows all things and in His economy it all fits.
That is not to say we don’t struggle, question or grieve — we are, after all, human. But not all things are secret. God has revealed much through His Son Jesus – the Living Word, and through the Bible – His written Word.
God is knowable, not comprehendible. “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.” Psalm 139:6
Though we don’t understand the secret things of God, we do have those things revealed to us, and it is those things we are to obey.
Isn’t it good to know that God is greater than we can imagine or comprehend?
