What are the things hidden?
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
What are the things hidden?
From whom are these things hidden?
Why are they revealed to little children?
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth[I openly and joyfully acknowledge Your great wisdom], that You have hidden these things [these spiritual truths] from the wise and intelligent and revealed them to infants [to new believers, to those seeking God’s will and purpose]. 26 Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27 All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Son except the Father; and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son [deliberately] wills to reveal Him.
28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me[following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy [to bear] and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:25-30 AMP
When you get this, your yoke will be easy and your burden will be light. What do you need to get? How can you have a light burden and an easy way? This is not going to be easy to hear. This is why it is hidden from the wise and learned.
We are trained that if you perform, then life will be easy. Have more money and success and life will be better. Work hard and you will succeed. If this is how you think, you need to be re-trained and re-taught. Who is the great teacher? The great teacher is Jesus Christ and HE wants to be yoked to you. HIS yoke is gentle and humble. A yoke of pride can be easily yoked with another yoke of pride. However, a yoke of gentleness and humility can only be yoked with another yoke of gentleness and humility. Jesus said his yoke is gentle and humble. His yoke will not fit with a prideful spirit in you.
If you want your burden light, you must humble yourself. Ask the question: are you being prideful? Are you seeking your way or God’s way? Rest comes for your soul in gentleness and humility. These secrets of the Kingdom of God are only available to those who are like children. Children receive instruction from their teacher easier than from adults.
Can you receive like a child? Do you want your soul to rest? Do you really want your burden of stress and anxiety to be easy and light?
Do you believe the Word of God? If you do, then go put it into practice today. Humble yourself before the Lord and you will find rest for your soul today.
