It is God's privilege to conceal things and the kings privilege to discover them Proverbs 25:2 NLT God has a of of mysteries and things concealed, his will and his ways but he wants to reveal them to us and he has given a set of people this privilege- kings. The first thing that will likely come to one's mind is an earthly king but he has spoken concerning us in Rev 5:10 that 'And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth' .We are the set of people that are privilege to know these concealed matters. God does not want these things to continue to be a mystery to us. let us consider what he said concerning this in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 'No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him but it was to us that God revealed these things to by his spirit. For his spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets. this implies that one of the reasons God gave us his spirit was to reveal his deep secrets to us his children. We have access to the heart of the father, nothing should catch us unawares because the spirit of God is in us. Verse 12 of the same chapter says 'And we have received God's spirit(not the world"s spirit) so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us. Men of old like Abraham enjoyed this privilege despite the fact that they were under the old covenant, how much more we that have received God's spirit. If God will not hide from Abraham what he wanted to do, then we should not be ignorant as well. it has been freely given unto us but we need to make use of it. Exercising this privilege can only happen when we relate with the holy spirit in us, when we yield to his instructions and have an open heart to seek and receive these mysteries.
