“Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in goodness and his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.”
“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear him and He will show them His covenant.”
“The secret of the Lord…”
It is my heart’s desire to know the secret of the Lord – His mysteries, His treasures, those words spoken only to those who love Him.
This scripture tells me that the Lord reveals His secrets – the essence of Who He is – to those who worship Him, to those who love and adore Him, to those who stand in awe of His majesty, yet understand His authority.
He confides in those He calls friend.
Can you imagine? Can you JUST imagine?!
Abraham was called the friend of God (2 Chronicles 20:7). In Genesis 18:17, the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham the things that I do?”
Abraham and Jehovah God were in a close relationship. The Spirit of the Lord walked with him and talked with him. I believe the Lord bared His heart to Abraham because He trusted Abraham’s love.
In John 15:15 Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”
“All things I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.”
Divine wisdom and understanding.
The Lord confides in those He calls friend. We must press in and listen.
Father, I long to know You more. I long to honor You with my love and with my reverence of Who You are. Open my ears that I might hear, enlighten the eyes of my heart that I might understand more of Your Truth. Thank You, Lord. I love You.
