I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that yo may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel. (Isa 45:3)
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid, and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. (Mat 13:44)
I think He’s serious about this. There’s stuff that God has hidden from us. I don’t think He’s being malicious about it. He’s not teasing us that there are things we can’t see. But He is teasing us in a way. He wants to see who will go after it.
You don’t find things God has hidden casually. You have to be intentional. You have to want it find them. That’s the heart that God is interested in. Who wants more of God? Who wants to find the hidden treasures of darkness and hidden riches in secret places? If they come from God, they are going to be more than awesome.
You’d better get on board with this, because if you don’t, I’m going to get all of them. I’m not at all shy about pressing into everything that He has for me. How about you?
