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 
secret way? 
   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 
dont understand. 
   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 
basically good. 
   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 
him better. 
   Psalm 25:14 says, Friendship with God 
is reserved for those who reverence him. With 
them alone he shares the secrets of his 
promises (TLB). 
   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 
your life. 
   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.
