he makes his covenant known to them.”
Psalm 25:14, NIV
What makes you want to confide in someone? Most of us have many acquaintances but very few close friends in whom we can confide. The level of intimacy needed to reveal deep things of the heart goes far deeper than we usually find comfortable. Trusting someone enough to be completely open with them marks a relationship as unique and special.
With that in mind, is it not amazing that God wants to confide in you? He wants the kind of relationship with you that will allow Him to share with you the deep matters of His heart. He confides only in those who fear Him, who honor Him enough to treat those intimate revelations as the treasures they are. He may want to show you an insight into a portion of His Word, clarify some aspect of His plan for your life, or just expand your understanding of His love.
The primary issue involved in all of these “confidings” is trust. The more trustworthy you prove to be in the small details He shares with you, the more He will open up to you. When He finds those who genuinely revere Him, fear Him and long to honor Him in all things, He delights to make His ways known to them.
David reminds us that the Lord confides in those who fear Him, those who care deeply about His good favor. If you fear the Lord and treasure what He values, He will trust you with the depths of His heart. What an honor to be trusted by God! Just think about that today!
QUESTION: What special treasure has the Lord shared with you lately? Have you been still long enough to listen? Does your relationship with Him encourage Him to share with you what is on His heart?
