Psa.25:14 – The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant.
Do you want to know a secret? Now this isn’t just any old secret, this is the secret plan that God has for you. These are stored up secrets reserved just for you in these special days that we live in. One of the big mistakes we make in life is thinking that everything that happens is just random, you know sorta the luck of the draw. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Lord has a very specific plan and He misses nothing. The second mistake we make is by placing too much emphasis on ourselves to “make it happen”. The Lord doesn’t need us to fulfill His plans, He just delights in letting us be involved. Like today’s verse says, those that fear the Lord begin to be taken into His counsel, He actually begins to unveil His plans for His own. Here is how Dick Mills describes this benefit of being in on the Lord’s secrets.
“Try to visualize a room in heaven where leadership assembles for deliberation and planning. The main topic concerns the final hours of the church age. During the session, your name comes up, and the main thrust is the Lord’s plan for you, during earth’s final hours. You see, the Lord has some great plans for the future and you are included in His plans. The Hebrew word for secret is sowd. It is defined as a session, a company of persons in close deliberation, an assembly gathered for consultation. You know you are included in the planning sessions because 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, tells us God has prepared great things for those who love Him. They are revealed to us through the Holy Spirit. The verse goes on to say the Holy Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.”
What a humbling thought, that my name came up in the Lord’s planning session. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have devised a plan and I am blessed to be right in the middle of it. His plan of the ages, bringing redemption to a fallen world, is being intensified as the end draws near. Yes, He has a role for me to play in this last day drama, the good news, He also has a plan for you. Let the fear of God settle in on you, as it does you will be drawn in to the counsel of the Lord.
