"Revealed To All"

"At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes." Matthew 11:25
Spiritual revelation, insight and understanding comes from the Father. There is a knowledge that we can gain through study but the "spirit" of what is being said comes only from the Father through the Spirit. "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63) 
Many read their Bible but they never "hear" or "see" what it says. They just gain a knowledge of "facts and figures" about it. The Bible is more than facts and figures, it is a Person. From cover to cover, Genesis to Revelation, it is a revelation of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. It is a revelation of this wonderful Triune God and the great love He has for mankind.
I have come across many books that are so far above my understanding that it was pointless to read them. They are too intelligent in content for me to comprehend what is being written. The Bible is not like that although I have heard so many people say that the Bible is hard to understand. It is only hard when you are trying to understand it on a mental level. It is spiritual. And therefore it has to be read "spiritually". Now, the beautiful thing about that is, not only has God given us His Word, this wonderful revelation of Himself, but He also gives us the understanding of what it means. And even more beautiful than that is the fact that He will reveal it to all- not just the intellectual, not just the learned, but He will reveal it even to a child. God shows no respect to persons. He desires to reveal Himself to all and will to those who in turn want to know Him and will humble themselves to seek Him. He doesn't deny a person just because they are poor, uneducated, young, of a lower social status, unpopular, etc. We see within the pages of the Bible that He revealed Himself to the elite, the wealthy, the poor, the prostitute, tax collectors, lepers, the outcast, the common people and babes. 
He desires to reveal Himself to you this morning, regardless of where you are and who you are. He loves us all and wants to show us who He is. Had He not, He never would have given us His Word or sent the Living Word, Jesus, into the world. "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father." (John 14:9)
Have a great day. God is not a respecter of persons. He desires to reveal Himself to all.
