The Secret of the Lord
The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant. Psalm 25:14
We don’t contemplate the blessing of water until we’re thirsty, or the nourishment of bread until hungry. Peter knew the covenant of grace only when his denial of Christ confronted him with his need. Saul of Tarsus didn’t see his impoverishment until he was blinded on Damascus Road. God is love, and love wants to be out in the open, not secretive. God brings us to the place we know His promises to us. We screech and scream, and then the tears evaporate when we know what He wants us to know—the depth of His love and the extent of His promises.
