1 Corinthians 4:1-2
There was one movie entitled, "National Treasure". It's a story of finding the secrets of treasures, a mystery that's hidden in many places and kept from many generations. It ended to prove that their apprehension is right as they found the treasure.
We have a better treasure that does not even need to be proven for it exists even before anything exist! And the knowledge of it is not to be hidden but to be declared to others, that they may benefit from it as it is intended to bless those who finds it. Though finding it is not by the wisdom or strength of man but all by His grace! You can't find it except when you seek it with all your heart, humbly believing in Him. But it brings all that man who are seeking. His reason for living, His purpose and the greatest challenge of all: The mystery of the future revealed and made known to those whom God find faithful to carry His plan and purpose!
There is a saying that "Tomorrow is Mystery", but to those who know their God and placed their trust in Him, they know that mystery is settled in His hand. That's why we can say "We are not afraid to entrust our unknown future to our known God!"
Let us be who are - recipients of His grace. Let it be shared to others so that we can be counted as faithful stewards of the mysteries of God! His word is so rich with His knowledge which we can only know by His grace manifested by His Holy Spirit!
God bless and let the whole world know that there is God!!!
Till next time!
