"The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant."
Psalm 25:14 NKJV
The word "secret" David is referring to means to be alert, to be on the lookout, to be a confidant. But God doesn't share this secret with anyone but only those who seek Him with a deep hunger. This secret promise isn't for a casual Christian, it's only for those He knows He can trust. The secret of this New Covenant is a life preserver to those sinking in a mire of sin. He is calling out to those in evil strongholds, lust, and habits which they can't break. This New Covenant brings a new heart, a righteous awe of God, dominion over sin and a Holy Ghost hatred and shame for sin; but, it also brings guidance, and power to walk in His will with good pleasure enduring to the end.
The condition of this Covenant takes more than prayer and fasting, it comes from seeking Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. This secret isn't some quick, feel good sense we get when we are encouraged after Sunday morning. Then during the week about Wednesday, life starts to happen and we start feeling like we did the previous week, and by Sunday morning we need picking up again.
Do you want to know what the secret is?
I'll tell you tomorrow. To be continued...... :-)
