God’s Astonishing Plan Is for Us to Know His Hidden Wisdom

But how do we reach that wisdom? How do we get closer to the Lord? There is only one way ...

Would you like to know the secrets of God?

It’s fascinating to imagine the possibilities if God were to share His secrets with us.

God said to Jeremiah the Prophet, “Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it — the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah‬ ‭33:2-3‬). ‭

God’s astonishing plan for us to know His hidden wisdom is echoed in the New Testament, but it isn’t reserved for the powerful or those highly esteemed by our contemporary culture.

The Bible says, “Among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory (1 Corinthians 2:6-8).

To whom does God reveal His secrets?

The answer is in the next verses: “’What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him’— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God” (2:9-10).

If you want to discover God’s secrets, love Him with all your heart.

Search for Him with the intensity reserved for what you love the most.

He will reveal wisdom far beyond your own intelligence.

God’s secrets belong to those who passionately love Him.

When His secrets belong to us, we sing with the Psalmist, “Whom have I in heaven but thee” (Psalms 73:25).
