"The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law." Deuteronomy 29:29, NIV
Praise God He has revealed some things to us, but there is still so much we will never understand.
We have figured out the chemical make-up of water, but will we ever really understand when it will fall upon the earth? We know many of the characteristics of cancer, thanks to those laboratory rats, but will we ever really be able to make our society cancer free? We understand much of what makes up a person’s heart and personality, but will the mystery between males and females ever be figured out, or will it always be that, as the book claims, “Men are from Mars” and “Women are from Venus”.
No, if you name a subject, you realize quickly that there is so much more for mankind to learn. Scientists, sociologists, and other researchers will never lack for something to study. Man has so much to learn. I knew a scientist once who spent his entire time researching one type of cell. Can you imagine?
God has hidden some things from our discovery. He hasn’t given us full knowledge; some more than others maybe, but none of us have all of it. What if we did know everything? What kind of life would that be? If you knew everything about your spouse, wouldn’t that take away some of the excitement of growing together? If you knew all that would happen in your life, would there be a need for our word “anticipation”? Wouldn’t life be boring at times?
If you are going through something today that you cannot understand, don’t be too discouraged. Maybe you aren’t supposed to understand it right now. I like the song that goes “We will understand it better by and by”. Someday we will. For now, we must trust the One who understands the secret things.
