Nothing Hidden

As I worked with this verse from Matthew 10 which reads “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known”, a thought came to mind.  This could also mean that our true identity as God’s precious child would come to light!  In the past, I would think of something someone had done that had not been made public and it always seemed to be dark and foreboding.  Then I was led to Acts 17:27-28 which states “God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’  As some of your own poets have said,  ‘We are His offspring.'”

Light seemed to shine inside my head as I prayed with these verses.

Fired Up or Truth Revealed More Slowly

This morning I read an article  about being “Fired Up” when the Truth is revealed to us or a prayer answered.  As I prayed about this, I realized at other times the answer to my prayer may take longer and slower.  Our spiritual growth is never just a temporary “high” but in learning more about God and our relationship to Him, His uninterrupted care comes to light.  11 Timothy 1:7 states “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

God knows what I need to know the most and it is in His timing.  There are times when it seems it is taking a little longer for my prayer to be answered; then I stop and see God does not make a mistake but knows better what we need.  This is His day and I rejoice in knowing this.
