And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God…” (Mark 4:11a NKJV)

I have found that God does not want His Word to be mystery to us; He wants it to be revealed truth. When I find passages that I don’t understand in the Bible, I write a question mark beside them. When I read through those passages again, I ask the Father to reveal them to me. If I’m patient, eventually God will give me a beautiful revelation.

Once I didn’t understand why God had not allowed Moses to enter the Promised Land. I knew Moses had hit the rock twice, instead of once. If I had been forced to listen to murmurers for 40 years, I would probably have hit the people, instead of the rock. I put a question mark by that verse.

One day as I was reading the same verse, the Lord said that Moses DID get to enter the Promised Land. God said, “Moses was on the Mount of Transfiguration with Elijah and Jesus. With whom would you rather enter the Promised Land—murmuring Jews or Jesus?”

We know the mysteries of God through revelation knowledge.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Open our eyes to behold wonders from Your Word today. Give us hearing ears and seeing eyes to receive the revelations that You have for us. 

In Jesus’s Name,
