Learning the Secrets of God

Then the LORD said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?”

(Genesis 18:17 NIV)

I love the story in Genesis 18:16-33. After a visit with Abraham, the Lord chose to reveal His plans to Abraham concerning Sodom and Gomorrah, which demonstrates the great friendship that the Lord and Abraham shared. Jesus told His disciples, “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). Friends share each other’s secrets. As His friends, God invites us to “‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know’” (Jeremiah 33:3). God’s plans are worth knowing and He reveals them to those who are His friends.

God reveals His secrets to His friends.
