What Has God Revealed To You?

"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law."
Deuteronomy 29:29 (NKJV)

God is a revealer of truth; God wants us to know His will.  Over and over again in the Bible we see God showing people truth and helping people see the direction they should go.  Today as Christians we even have the Holy Spirit living in us!  Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would lead us into all truth and the Holy Spirit would remind us of things that Jesus has said (John 14:26).  Jesus did say that we must ask to receive, seek to find, and knock to have something opened (Matthew 7:7), but we should remember that God is not trying to hide His plan from us but rather God wants us to know His will.

Too many people focus on the questions they have and what they don't know instead of what they do know.  Many times when some tragedy has occurred or something has not happened the way someone hoped it would there are questions.  We can sometimes get so focused on the questions we don't have the answers to that we lose our focus on what we do know.  If we are not careful we get so caught up in asking "Why?" that we don't do what we do know to do.  It has been said that analysis brings paralysis and that is what happens if we just stay in the place of asking questions without moving forward with what we do know.

What has God revealed to you through His Word and what are you doing with it?  What are you doing about what God has led you to do in your life?  We want to have answers to all of our questions but we should remember as it says in Deuteronomy 29:29 that the things that are secret and unknown to us are in God's hands but what has been revealed is given to us so we can do God's will.  Instead of staying in the dark, so to speak, with the questions we don't have answers to we should walk in the light of God's Word that we do have; God will always let us know the things we need to know so we can do what we need to do.
