Solving Mysteries

article-new_ehow_images_a07_jt_sj_solve-mystery-games-kids-800x8002In life, there are a lot of mysteries.  There are always things that we don’t know, that we don’t understand, that are unsure of.  There are always mysteries.

What will happen in the future?  What will happen to our kids, our grandkids?  What will happen today?  What decision should we make?  What door should we go through?

Where do we find our answer?  In Daniel, the king quite often had dreams, had things he needed/wanted to know an answer too.  And he looked to the stars and the magicians of his day for answers. When they couldn’t answer he turned to Daniel.  Listen to what Daniel says today in Daniel 2: 26-28:

The king declared to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, “Are you able to make known to me the dream that I have seen and its interpretation?” Daniel answered the king and said, “No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery that the king has asked, but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days.

The answers for the uncertain in our lives don’t come from this world, but they come through God.  Now, God will often speak through other people, like He did through Daniel in this text, but Daniel is sure to say – the answer to these mysteries, they don’t come from any human, but they come only through God.  How do we know the answers?  How do we solve the mysteries?

God will speak to us and reveal these things to us when we seek Him in His Word.  Reading Holy Scripture consistently is one of the ways that God will reveal the plans He has for us.  So many answers will be revealed when we take time to listen through His Word.

God will speak to us through prayer.  As we seek His face through our time with Him, God will show His face to us and allow to know only know which way to go, but better yet, to know Him.

God will speak to us through worship.  As we gather together with other believers, through worship and the Word, God speaks to our souls and opens our eyes.

God will speak to us through His people. God will often place someone in our path that will have the word that we need to hear. The question is, will we be watching and listening for that word?

And know this, He will reveal the answers that you need, when you need to know them.  So, if you don’t have the answer you seek yet, don’t give up.  It will come.  It will.  Because God is faithful and true.  And all knowledge comes from Him.
