Lessons Learned


It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; it is the honor of kings to search it out. Proverbs 25:2


I have learned much in these many weeks of waiting on God. It’s funny what all a ruffled soul discovers, and rediscovers, when it quiets down and listens.

For starters, revelation—the bringing to light that which was previously hidden—cannot be forced. God will not be pressured by time, by human insecurities and impatience, or by self-imposed deadlines. He is not obliged to speak or to make the secrets of His heart known to anyone. It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; . . .

Yet, “God is generous. Though God would have every right to keep all of his goodies to himself, he doesn’t. He shares.” He has much to say, many divine truths He longs to give to those who make the effort to explore Him deeper . . . it is the honor of kings to search it out. [i]

In this world of high-speed internet, fast foods, and same-day delivery, it’s easy to get caught up in the race against time. But just as the dawn of a new day and the birth of a child cannot be rushed, revelation cannot—will not—be rushed. Precious truths are gifts from God’s heart. They need to make their appearance at the appropriate time so that Christ is fully formed in us. The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. [ii]

Revelation, no matter how modest, is never commonplace. It is priceless treasure newly discovered. When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight . . . [iii]

Revelation should never be taken for granted. God speaks. He reveals. But not always in ways we are accustomed to. At times He chooses to communicate through silence in order to quiet us with His love. [iv]

Revelation is a blessing. It becomes an even greater blessing when it can be shared. “There is no enjoying the possession of anything valuable unless one has someone to share it with.” [v]

Thank you for waiting till my soul found its resting place again. And thank you for letting me share my lessons learned. I hope to connect with you again (maybe not weekly as before), but soon.

Blessings!

Debbie

Thank you, Debbie! It’s good to have you back. Because of God’s great love, today is a “wonder full” day (thoughts from an article I just read, written by Matt Bell).
