The word for mysteries here means- hidden secrets, hidden things not obvious to the understanding, the hidden purposes and secret counsel of God. How amazing is it that God desires to reveal His secrets to us. It is amazing because His ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours. It is amazing because He knows the names of each and every star-- all trillions times trillions times trillions of them. It is amazing because He sees each and every sparrow when it falls, measures the universe in the width of His hand, knows the numbers of hairs on each person's head, and yet He would let man made from dust in on His secrets.
"He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." (Matthew 13:11) This privilege and honor is not given to everyone. It is not because God does not want to share them with us all. It is given to those-- like His disciples-- who spend time with Him. Who are with Him twenty-four seven. It is given to those who will sit at His feet and listen to His words. It is given to those who follow Him everywhere He goes and leads, and obeys what He tells them to do. It is given to those like Moses who will come apart to listen. And to those who will draw near to Him to observe and hear. "And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt." (Exodus 3:3)
"He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel." (Psalm 103:7) Even among those who profess to know Him most only know His "acts". They see what He is doing but they don't understand it. They don't know "what?" or "why?" God is doing what He is doing. Will we know "everything" about the workings of God? No. We only know in part now while on earth. But there is a whole lot more that God desires to show us and make us privy to if we would have a heart that desires to know Him in a deeper way and listen to what He is saying. There is no good thing that He withholds from those who walk uprightly... including His secrets.
Have a great day. God desires to reveal His secrets to you.
