June 15 – Living By What We Know


“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29 (NASB)


These are words of Moses are part of his farewell address to those he had led out of Egypt and for more than 40 years in the wilderness to a place near to their entrance into the Promised Land. He was near to the end of his life. God had revealed much to him for His people. Moses knew, however that not all things had been revealed – only the truths which God wanted them, and us, to know. “The things revealed” included the law with its promised blessings and threated curses; that which is hidden refers to the specific way in which God will carry out His will in the future. God used others to pass on truths which we have in the Bible. This revelation is for us and intended to help us live according to His will. Someone once said, “It is better to know than not know,” and that is often true but we must recognize that God knows more than what He has revealed to us and what he has revealed, is in our Bible. Thank God for what he has made known through the Bible and then live by it.
