Psalm 25:14 - How God Speaks to Us.
Psalm 25:14 (NKJV) The secret of the Lord
is with those who fear Him, and He will show
them His covenant.
Psalm 25:14 (TLB) Friendship with God is
reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone
he shares the secrets of his promises.
The LORD confides in those who fear
him. God offers intimate and lasting friendship
to those who revere him, who hold him in
highest honor. What relationship could ever compare
with having the Lord of all creation for a
friend? Your everlasting friendship with God will
grow as you revere him. [Life Application SB]
When my grandkids were smaller, I took
them to secret places. For instance, Id
tell them, Were going into this restaurant.
Do you want to go in the regular way like all
the other people, or do you want to go in the
The secret way, Poppa!
So Id take them in through a side
door, but they thought it was the secret way.
The Bible tells us that God revealed
secrets to Noah: By faith Noah, being divinely
warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly
fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his
household, by which he condemned the world and became
heir of the righteousness which is according to
faith (Hebrews 11:7 NKJV).
God spoke to Noah, and it activated his
There are a lot of ways that God speaks
to us, but the primary way He speaks is through
the word of God.
When you believe the Bible, you know
things that other people dont know. In fact, God
reveals things to Christians that non-Christians
Because they believe the Bible, average
Christians know more, in many ways, than some of the
great intellects of the world. For instance, the
Bible teaches that humanity is basically sinful.
Now, that makes sense, and the world makes more
sense when we accept the premise that were not
The Bible also teaches that God is good.
It teaches that one day judgment will come to
the world and that its going to get worse
before it gets better. The Bible teaches that one
day Christ will return and will right every
And the Bible says, The secret of the
Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show
them His covenant (Psalm 25:14 NKJV).
Has He spoken to you lately? [Greg Laurie
from Harvest Ministries;
If you want to build a deep relationship
with God, you have to slow down and be quiet.
Friendship with God is like any other
friendship - you have to make time for it. If you
dont make time for your human friends, theyre
not your friends. You make time for your
friends. And if God is going to be your best friend,
youve got to give your best time to him.
The Bible says, Be still, and know
that I am God (Psalm 46:10 NIV).
You need to have a daily quiet time with
God. You have to be still so that you can know
Psalm 25:14 says, Friendship with God
is reserved for those who reverence him. With
them alone he shares the secrets of his
Many people dont know God. They
havent experienced Gods love. They dont know
why he does what he does. Yet, the Bible says
that friendship with God is reserved for those
who reverence him - in other words, those who
slow down and spend time with him.
What would a friendship be if you never
invested your time in it? Friendships need attention.
You will never know God intimately if all you do
is come to church services. Youve got to
read Gods Word and ask him, God, is there
anything you want to say to me? You dont have
to use any fancy phrases or words. Just talk to
him authentically. And then listen!
The Bible says it like this in Matthew
6:5-6: When you come before God, dont turn
that into a theatrical production Find a
quiet, secluded place so you wont be tempted to
role-play before God. Just be there as simply and
honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from
you to God, and you will begin to sense his
grace (Matthew 6:5-6 The Message).
Slow down today, focus on God, and listen
as he speaks to you about his grace. [Daily
Devotional by Rick Warren:
My family once was pet-sitting a friend's
hamster. One night, and we still have absolutely no
idea how, Houdini the hamster escaped his
escape-proof home and was loose in our house.
Unfortunately, we had traps set in various places for mice.
I'm sure you can tell this story doesn't have a
happy ending. The furry guy is in a better place
now. At least that's what we're telling
If you're not paying attention, you can
find yourself caught in the Enemy's snares the
same way. One minute you're scrolling through
Facebook, enjoying seeing pictures of your old
friend's Hawaiian vacation, and the next you're
resenting the fact that your day at the waterpark with
your kids can't compare. Next thing you know,
there's an empty Doritos bag next to the empty pint
of Cherry Garcia ice cream.
When we focus on what we don't have,
especially if we compare ourselves to others who seem
to have what we want, then we're walking into a
trap. Instead, we must keep our eyes on the Lord,
knowing that he guides our steps and will lead us
around the minefield of comparison, envy, and
covetousness planned by the Enemy. God always provides a
way through those traps, but we have to focus on
Today avoid the Enemy's snares by keeping
your eyes on God and his abundant blessings in
Jesus, I'm not taking my eyes off you
today. You are my shepherd and you will guide me
safely through the temptations waiting ahead of me.
