Psa 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
There are certain secrets of God’s providence He allows His children to learn.
Often,however, at least on the surface, His dealings with them appear to be harsh and hidden.Yet faith looks deeper and says,“This is God’s secret.You are looking only on the outside, but I look deeper and see the hidden meaning.”
Remember, diamonds are found in the rough,and their true value cannot be seen.
And when the tabernacle was built in the wilderness, there was nothing ornate about its outward appearance. In fact, the outer covering of the thick hides of sea
cows gave no hint of the valuable things inside.
Dear friend,God may send you some valuable gifts wrapped in unattractive paper. But do not worry about the wrappings, for you can be sure that inside He has hidden treasures of love, kindness,and wisdom.
If we will simply take what He sends and trust Him for the blessings inside, we will learn the meaning of the secrets of His providence, even in times of darkness.
