“And he said, unto you is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.” – Luke 8:10
Jesus said, ‘unto you it is given to know the mysteries (secrets) of the Kingdom of God’(Mark 4:11). No wonder Hosea 6:3 says “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know…”It’s your responsibility as a Christian to go for God’s Word. You must have an insatiable appetite for the Word of God. Knowing the Word of God and living by it is the secret of success and prosperity, for God’s Word is the number one book of success.
The knowledge of God’s Word sets you at liberty. It sets you at liberty to excel, succeed and prosper in life-it sets you at liberty to live the good life. God wants you to know His Word and live by it. That’s the reason “He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers(Ephesians 4:11), He wants His people to be built unto maturity through the teaching of the Word.
Dare to believe God and what He says concerning you in His Word. If He has said, “You shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”(Mark 16:18), then that’s what you should do. There’s no “ands”, “ifs” or “buts!” Don’t ask for extra secrets! Just go ahead and do what God has says you can do. If He has said it, then that’s it! His Word to you is the only secret you need.
Dear Father, your Word enlightens my heart and lights up my path in life. I give myself to the diligent study of your Word and ask that by your Spirit, you’ll continually grant me the understanding of your Word and the wisdom to do what it says, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
