The Mysteries of God
And so it is with the mysteries of God…
Lay aside the fear of incomprehension and faltering,
Of too small a mind and a confused and wounded heart,
For all of the unseen, unknown and unbelieved mysteries of God will be unlocked as the greatest secrets ever told!
Do you love to tell secrets? Of course not the hurtful kind that wound others, but the kind you have been keeping that make you want to burst open and tell all the world? I’m having a baby! Look what I got you for your birthday! Remember that feeling you got while hiding under the skirted table during hide-n-seek? I can still remember what my stomach felt like—all tied in good knots and swirling with giggly excitement. Sometimes I gave in to the moment and screamed, “AAAAHHHH here I am!!!!” And burst out laughing so hard I wet my pants.
Well, such are the mysteries of God. Oh how he longs to share all of his secrets and unlock all of his mystery just for you. Lately, as I have been reading through the Song of Solomon, I have been longing to fully understand myself as a bride of Christ. I want to see God as my bridegroom and be romanced and intoxicated by his intimate love for me. With all of the skewed views of love and sex and intimacy flooding our world today, this is a great feat for me. So I am going slow, trying to fully grasp each verse of this book. The human part of me just wants to get this down and understand it and enjoy it quickly. I get frustrated when I read about Spirit kisses in only the first chapter and my mind simply cannot fathom what that really means. But then I am reminded of all the times when I read a passage of scripture and it is as if someone pushed the unlock button on my mind and heart and I just got it in a deeper way than ever before. Not only do I get it in my head, but my heart gets it in the most intimate of ways. I become one with that particular principle of Gods love and my understanding. So I know this mystery of Spirit divine kisses or fresh passion to know my Bridegroom King will be opened and revealed to me as I pray for revelation. That’s really all we have to do….ask.
What mystery lingers in your heart today? What are those deep longings you have hidden that sometimes, if you are honest, you are afraid will never be fulfilled? Maybe it is the thing about a friend and their relationship with God that you wish you could have too. It is for you…all of the mysteries and wonderful depth of who God truly is will be unlocked for you because you too, are a bride of the King.
