The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. (Psalms 25:14, Amplified)
…His confidential communion and secret counsel are with the [uncompromisingly] righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him). (Proverbs 3:32, Amplified)
God has secrets. And He wants to share them. But not with just anyone. He shares them with those who commune with Him, those who have a relationship with Him in fear and reverence and in righteousness.
When Jesus walked this earth He went about teaching and preaching, but afterwards He stole away with His disciples and a few others and shared the deep, inner meaning of His teachings.
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables. (Mark 4:10-11, KJV)
Over the last couple of post we spoke much of Martha and Mary. Martha who was too busy to spend time with Him. Mary who seated herself at His feet, listening.
We see David alone in the wilderness with his heart turned to God. We see Moses go off, away from the camp to the temporary prayer tent where God spoke to him face to face. We see Joshua linger in the place of His Presence when all others have departed. And Jesus, the Son of God…
And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone. (Matthew 14:23, Amplified)
I tell the things which I have seen and learned at My Father’s side… (John 8:38, Amplified)
One of my favorite scriptures is Song of Solomon 2:13-17 in the Amplified Bible. Here is just a portion of it.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. [So I went with him…] (Song of Solomon 2:13-14)
Some can sit in a service and remain on the outskirts in their heart. Others can read His word, but not take the time to hear His voice. He is calling each of us deeper. Deeper in love with Him. Deeper in His Word. Deeper into His heart. Take the time. Answer His call. He’s calling you deeper into Him every day. And in that secret place He’ll reveal to you His secrets.
…What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny]. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, Amplified)
Just as John Bevere said, truly, not everyone is His friend, but only those who commune with Him. Selah.
