June 15 – Living By What We Know

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” Deuteronomy 29:29 (NIV)

These are words of Moses near to the end of his life. He had lead the Children of Israel for more than 40 years. God had revealed much to him for His people. Moses knew, however that not all things had been revealed – only the truths which God wanted them, and us, to know. God used many others to pass on truths which we have in the Bible. This revelation is for us and intended to help us live according to His will. We can be glad for what we have and we can live by what we know.  Someone once said, “It is better to know than not know,” and that is often true but we must recognize that God knows more than what He has revealed to us and what he has revealed, He knows is good for us to know.    When we don't understand everything in the universe, let's thank God for what he has made known through the Bible and then live by it.
