“The Lord our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.”
Deuteronomy 29:29 (NLT)
What does God know that you don't know? Well, the answer to that question is that God knows everything!
Someone has rightly said of human beings, "The more you know, the more you know that you don't know!" With new knowledge comes the humbling awareness of how very much more there is that we don't know. But, a little knowledge can convince you that you indeed know everything, when truthfully you know almost nothing!
Here is a sobering reality! You are accountable for the truth that you do know and not the secrets of God that you don't know! We like to explore the realities of God and add nuggets of truth to our treasures of understanding, but often we ignore the simple truths that even a child can grasp! Jesus once said that my responsibility is to love God with everything that is in me and to love my neighbor as I love myself! When I am busy with both of those things, I will find little time for discovering the secrets of God that He has not revealed!
When I spend my life being obedient to the Word of God that I can clearly understand, I will discover that God is pleased with His child!
"Lord Jesus, I know that You know everything! There is no secret hidden from the mind of God. Help me to trust, obey, and relax in the knowledge that You know everything there is to know in this world and beyond. And may You Lord Jesus be praised forever. Amen."
