Daily devotional: God is the revealer of secrets

Scripture
And it is not because I am wiser than anyone else that I know the secret of your dream, but because God wants you to understand what was in your heart.
Daniel 2:30 NLT

Observation
How amazing that God wanted to reveal the coming kingdoms to Nebuchadnezzar that would culminate in Jesus' establishing the kingdom of God! Truly God is amazing. Second, let me look to Daniel's example. He earnestly sought God to reveal the king's dream and interpretation, he thanked and praised God for answering him, and he gave God all the glory and credit for revealing the dream rather than taking any credit himself. Finally, thanks be to God that He controls the course of world events (v.21), that He reveals deep and mysterious things to man!

Application
Ask God to show his mercy to me by revealing his secret of what He has in store and how He is going to accomplish it.

Prayer
O God my Father, praise be to your name! You have all wisdom and power, so I am grateful that it is You whom I serve and make my requests. I lay my request at Your feet and ask You to reveal this mysterious secret to me that I have been earnestly praying for. I love you!
