Bits and Pieces: Instruction

"The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law," (Deuteronomy 29:29).

* In the midst of solemn warnings to the nation Israel, Moses includes needed teaching concerning concealment, revelation, and obedience. It is not for us to question what God has sovereignly chosen not to reveal, but to study diligently the revelation He has disclosed through the Scripture. We are not responsible for what He has not revealed, so the question is: are we continuing to hear, read, study, memorize & meditate on what He has revealed?

* Moses makes it clear in this verse that, when it comes to eternal truths, unless the Lord discloses them, no one can know them. How grateful we should be, that He has inspired and preserved sixty-six books of divine revelation for our instruction and wisdom. And may our aim in study of His Word always be specific obedience to His truth.
