This morning, I opened the bible up to Daniel, where he prays that God will help them interrupt the king’s dream. It says that God reveals secrets. God knows deep and hidden things. We don’t even know, what we don’t know.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
–Daniel 2:22 (NKJV)
there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets
–Daniel 2:28 (NKJV)
He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be.
–Daniel 2:29 (NKJV)
God can be merciful to us and reveal deep and hidden things. God knows everything. We cannot begin to imagine all that we do not know. When God reveals secrets to us, it is not because we are wiser than others. God is good and can reveal secrets to help us or help others.
As for you, O king, thoughts came to your mind while on your bed, about what would come to pass after this; and He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be. But as for me, this secret has not been revealed to me because I have more wisdom than anyone living, but for our sakes who make known the interpretation to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your heart.
–Daniel 2:29-30 (NKJV)
Has God ever revealed a secret to you? The Holy Spirit gives me nudges often. I have to quiet my mind and listen. It can be a small thing. Now, when things do not work out as planned, I do not fight it. I think God must not have wanted me to do this now.
There was a time when God revealed a secret to me that will be etched in my mind forever. Almost 6 years ago, My husband’s contract was not renewed. He lost his job. At the time, my kids were 2 and 4 years old. I was working part-time, but that wasn’t enough to pay the bills. It was one of the most stressful periods of my life. One night, I was asleep. I felt two hands laying on top of my head, radiating peace and light, and I heard the words, “It is going to be ok.” I saw a scene in my head, where my daughter and I were in a new house, looking out windows, when I heard my husband’s and son’s voices in the background. Suddenly, I woke up and sat upright, feeling an intense sense of comfort and peace. I woke my husband up and asked if he had laid his hands on my head. He said no, he was sleeping. I carried this dream around with me for the next 7 months, replaying it in my mind throughout each day, everyday. A few months later, I had surgery and my dad died. I hung onto this dream and clung to the hope and promise in it. The dream changed my outlook, perspective and decisions. And, we did end up in the house that I dreamt about. Seven months later, my husband got a new job. We were approved for a loan. We were looking at a certain neighborhood, and as soon as the loan was approved, our house came on the market. I knew it was going to be our house, because of the windows in the kitchen, breakfast room, in my dream.
God can reveal deep and hidden things to us. Hold God’s promises in your heart.
