Daily Verse: “But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.” (1 Cor. 2:7 ESV)
MUSTERION (3466): “Among the ancient Greeks ‘the mysteries’ were religious rites and ceremonies practiced by secret societies into which any one who so desired might be received. Those who were initiated into these ‘mysteries’ became possessors of certain knowledge, which was not imparted to the uninitiated, and were called ‘the perfected’ are, of course the believers, who alone can perceive the things revealed; Christ, who is God Himself revealed under the conditions of human life, and submitting even to death, 1 Cor. 2:1,7, but raised from among the dead, that the will of God to coordinate the universe in Him, and subject it to Him, might in due time be accomplished.”[i]
God reveals things to us as we follow Him. Become comfortable waiting for revelation. In life’s journey, you will have “aha” moments; rarely does God give you the whole story all at once. Instead, the Creator leads us along the path of righteousness one step at a time.
Accepting we have a limited perspective opens the door for God’s revelation. If we knew what lay ahead, we might not continue forward. God wants us to follow, not lead. Only when we trust His guidance will we learn the Big Guy’s secrets.
Trust and follow.
Everyone has something in their life they don’t understand. A circumstance or situation that doesn’t make sense now will one day. Until then, we must trust and follow, applying God’s principles to our lives.
As we align our hearts with God, things become more apparent. We begin to understand the temporary nature of this world, living for the eternal rewards found in heaven. Most of the things we worry about today won’t matter in 100 years or even 100 days. But eternal life with God does.
Whatever the situation, look for God’s presence. Ask God to guide you through the uncertainty of today. Instead of trying to solve the problem in your strength, ask God for His revelation. God provides the solution, but in His time, not yours.
