Proverbs 25:2 – It is the glory of God to conceal a matter but the glory of kings is to search out the matter.
Deutronomy 29:29- The secret things belong to the Lord our God but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever…….
Amos 3:7 – Surely the Lord does nothing unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets
In swaziland they is a ritual which is done yearly whereby the king gets to pick a new bride . I used to think that the selection is random besides my swazi friend told me the one who will be picked is known as she would have been groomed and taught in the ways of a queen from birth. But its not so with our God , he likes to be secretive about things , who would have imagined Saul would be the king of Israel after watching him wandering in the countryside looking for lost donkeys. If the teacher who taught Barack Obama in primary school knew he would be president one day he would have treated him differently and probably his high school girlfriend would have not dumped him hence depriving him of lessons only learnt through hardships. The workers who allowed Ruth to pick grain in Boaz’s field had no idea that a couple of weeks later she would be their boss , that is the mysteriousness of God. He allowed the king of Jews to be born in a manager so that the people who judge by appearance or status would reject him not knowing he will be the chief cornerstone. That is why you do not just find precious minerals like gold just lying round glittering for all to see but rather it looks like a normal rock wrapped around by unvaluable matter and requiring a perceptive mind to smelt of the useless to gain access to the important, the mindset of a king who searches out the matter. In times of old God used to reveal his secret things from time to time to his prophets but with the tearing up of the veil we now have access to them too if we are senstive enough or obedient enough because we carry the Christ in us. I refuse to be ignorant when he told us in Jeremiah to ask him and he will tell us deeper things of the kingdom. Nonetheless we should always know that they are things and depth about God we may never comprehend ie why he says my thoughts are higher than yours and so are his ways , we can never know all of him. They are parts of himself that he will never reveal because our minds are too small to appreciate the magnitude of such a being who has no beginning and no ending , who is everywhere and sits in the circumference of himself but we should at least yearn to be shown a facet of his hidden nature as he did for Moses when he asked to see him
