How to be let in on a secret

Reading: Matthew 13:1-23

“The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them” (v.11).

A calloused heart is what keeps us from being let in on the secrets of the kingdom of heaven.  We hear, but never understand; we see, but never perceive.  What a miserable condition!

But the Lord, in his mercy, can still break us—over and over again, until we reach rock bottom, on bended knees, and cry out to him.   Oh to be ensconced in His loving and comforting arms!  To finally have our eyes opened to see His glory, our ears opened to hear what He has to say, the Word of God suddenly leaping out of the pages of our Bibles, overwhelming us with understanding we never had before, filling us with excitement in living the life that the Lord called us to!  Oh glory!  Hallelujah!

The kingdom of God has arrived!  It is already in our midst—it is within me!  And I pray that is also within you!  … Today, if only you would hear his voice, “Do not harden your hearts….” – Psalm 95:7-8

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. – Luke 17:20-21 (KJV)

Joy is the flag flown high in the castle of my heart,
in the castle of my heart, in the castle of my heart!
Joy is the flag flown high in the castle of my heart,
When the King is in residence there!

Fly it high in the sky, let the whole world know,
let the whole world know, let the whole world know
Fly it high in the sky, let the whole world know,
That the King is in residence there!

  1. Oh, to be broken before my Lord. Few people see the necessity of brokenness. Others want to be whole, healed and delivered from all trials right away, not realizing if they don;t break, God can’t fix the secret things in their lives.. it’s a great topic, well, presented. Thanks for visiting my site as well!

    • Thanks for dropping by, Pete. You’re right, most of us don’t want to go through trials or discipline (the latter more painful)–but when we finally come out of it, we realise that it was only because of God’s immense love for us. You put it very well: “to fix the secret things in [our] lives.”
      Thank you for the compliment on this post—I only wrote what’s in my heart (and what God has taught me!), I hope it has blessed you. Have a lovely day!
