…And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Psalm 51: 6b (NKJV)

Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart…. When I thought how to understand this, it was too painful for me. Psalm 73:1 & 16 (NKJV)

God is a good God, despite the difficult situations that we may experience. We have spent the last few weeks learning that God desires truth in our inward parts, and He encourages us to be sincere with Him and with fellow humans. In Psalm 73, the psalmist had an experience that enhanced his understanding of God. Initially, he had seen that the wicked seemed to prosper without consequences for their wickedness, and having become envious and worried, he decided to seek God in a sanctuary - a place of worship. In the midst of worship, the Psalmist had a revelation from God that steadied and strengthened his walk with God.

In considering the idea of revelation, our Scriptural theme says that God will reveal wisdom in the hidden parts (Psalm 51:6). Revelation is a 'divine or supernatural disclosure to humans, of something relating to human existence' (Oxford Dictionary), and it brings understanding and insight about things that are past, present and future. The power of revelation played out in the story of Elijah and his servant, where they were surrounded by enemies, but had different attitudes to the same challenge. Elijah was bold because of the revelation that God had given him, while his servant was panicking, until God granted him revelation to see the fiery army of angels that were there to protect them (2 Kings 6:17).

What one is able to see about one's self greatly determines what one becomes. Many people are limited by their physical senses (2 Kings 6:15), but revelations from God have the capability to transform us. So, in our current challenges, what do we see? Is it all doom and gloom, or can we see that God is still good and able to deliver?
