Lord, lead me into your secrets!

Rev. Enoch Thompson | July 1, 2023 | Matthew 20:17-19


Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, . . . Matthew 20:17 (NIV)


There are things in life that we do not know naturally, or because we are not in a certain circle of opportunity. The Bible teaches that “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” (Deut 29:29). In Genesis 18:17, Yahweh decided to reveal His secret, His agenda of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, to Abraham His friend, who had just served Him and His angelic companions, without knowing he was serving God Himself; ‘Then the Lord said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? “’ (NIV).

In our text today, the Lord Jesus Christ “took the twelve disciples aside” and spoke to them about the secret of His mission and the astonishing predictions of His approaching arrest, torture, crucifixion, but ultimately of His unstoppable resurrection.

God still has secrets, concerning your life, your family, your work, your present, and your future. God still has secrets concerning our nation, the nations, the Church, and the world. If we will let Him take us aside on the road of life, as busy as it is, He will share with us those truths, and we will be a people with the privilege of knowing the hidden things that He chooses to unveil. The knowledge of the secrets of God will give us the upper hand in our spirituality, our family life, our businesses and in every way.

The songwriter Amy Grant got it all together in these words:

O Master, let me walk with Thee In lowly paths of service free Tell me Thy secret, help me bear The strain of toil, the fret of care.


When we take time to be alone with God in prayer and in the reading of His Word, He reveals secrets to us, when we take time to be with other believers in cooperate worship of God, He reveals other secrets to us.

God wants to have an intimate chat with you, aside, by the road. Will you let Him?


My God and my Father, thank you for your complete knowledge of all things, and for the privilege I have, to receive your self-revelations. I determine to step aside with you by the road, on my assumed busy life, that you may speak to me, that you may show me the things that are hidden. Show me your secrets Lord, for your dear Name’s sake, Amen.
