The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
The details of our lives are part of God’s sovereign will, which He purposely keeps secret because He wants us to learn to “trust and obey”.
God’s sovereign will has 4 primary characteristics.
1. First, God’s sovereign will is secret or hidden until it happens. Why, you might wonder, does God not tell us His sovereign will in advance? It is because He wants to build in us a character of trusting Him for our future to walk by faith not by sight (2 corinthians 5:7). Moreover, He is protecting us from information we are not equipped to handle.
2. Second, God’s sovereign will is exhaustive (1 Timothy 6:15).
God is the ultimate Determiner Of Everything that happens. In a word, God worketh all things after the counsel of His own will. Even the sinful acts of men are included in God’s sovereign will, yet God accomplishes this without being the author of sin, nor violating the will of man and without destroying the reality and responsibility of decision-making.
