Is it still a secret if you tell someone? Some people are like a book –they are easy to read. Others are somewhat mysterious. If someone confides in you, they trust you.
They may divulge some painful past experiences. One is moved with compassion by these shared wounds that were inflicted. You feel connected, and it’s easy to pray for them, especially if you’ve experienced somewhat of the same.
Secrets are truths we keep from being exposed. We guard them, conceal them, hide them. We keep them hidden, afraid we will be judged or rejected. For some reason, the truth is more difficult to face than keeping it secret.
Some things need to be kept secret. Look at Samson, for example. And Esther kept the secret that she was a Jew until the plot against her people was revealed.
God has some secrets He desires to share. God was about to destroy Sodom when he said, “Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do…” (Genesis 18:17)
“The secret things belong to the Lord our God…” (Deuteronomy 29:29). He wants to tell you His secrets. Can He trust you?
“And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” (Isaiah 45:3)
I can’t think of a better place to hide something than in the dark. If it seems you have been groping in darkness, it’s time you tell God ALL your secrets.
“Hast thou heard the secret of God?” (Job 15:8)
Share your secrets, He may share a secret with you.
