And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given – Matthew 13:10-11
Just like the disciples, whom the Master was addressing in our opening scripture, you also have been granted the ability to know and understand spiritual mysteries. In Ephesians 1:17-18, Paul prayed, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.” This, however, should no longer be just a prayer for you; respond to it and appropriate it into your life, because that’s the will of God for you.
God wants you to have insight into mysteries and secrets, with your spirit flooded with light to see and apprehend your heritage, and identity in Christ. So, you say, “I‘ve been given the spirit of wisdom and revelation, in the knowledge of God; the eyes of my understanding are enlightened; therefore, I know the hope of my calling; spiritual realities are unveiled to me! I know who I am, and all that belongs to me in Christ.” It’s important to respond to the Word this way because faith is the response of the human spirit to the Word of God.
Psalm 25:14 lets us know that the secret of the LORD is with them that reverence Him. He unveils His will to them. When you have the holy fear of God, and honour Him in your life, He will give you revelations of His Word, and make Himself known to you in a special way. The words of Jesus further amplify this in John 14:21: “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”

I have the ability to know and understand the mysteries of the Kingdom, because the Lord has enlightened my spirit; therefore, I walk in the light, and manifest the same to my world! Thank you Lord, for being my light, and also for making me the light of the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
