I have wonderful news! The Lord has secrets and he wants to entrust them to his people! He even limits His movements and activities until He has someone to share in what He is about to do. The prophet Amos said it this way:

Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets” Amos 3:7 (NKJV).

A clear example of God revealing His secret before He makes a move is found in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Lord first spoke to His servant Abraham about what He was going to do, and this gave Abraham the opportunity to intercede on behalf of the two cities: “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am going to do? » (Genesis 18:17). He wants to share his secrets with us and hear our input. There were also times when God shared His secret plan to wipe out disobedient Israel, and Moses asked God not to destroy them (Exodus 32).

As we begin to enter into the vision and the prophetic, the Lord will sometimes begin to reveal more of His secrets to us.
Remember, God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. Note that this refers specifically to His servants the prophets, not His servants the priests or His servants the kings. Those who lean into God to hear his voice and see into the spirit are those to whom he will confide secrets.

We are under the New Covenant, where Jesus said that all his sheep can hear his voice (see John 10:27). I am not saying that only prophets can hear the Lord and receive secrets. But the Lord takes note of those in whom He can trust His Word.
The apostle Paul goes so far as to define our identity this way:

… Men should regard us as servants of Christ and entrusted with the secret things of God” 1 Corinthian 4:1.


The secret of the Lord is with those who fear him, and he will show them his covenant” (Psalm 25:14 NKJV).

You heard; see all that. And will you not declare it? I have made you hear new things of this time, even hidden things, and you have not known them” (Isaiah 48:6).

At that time Jesus answered and said, ‘I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for thus it seemed good to you” Matthew 11:25-26.

Behold, old things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth, I will tell you about them” Isaiah 42:9

But as it is written : Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him. But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (KJV).

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law” Deuteronomy 29:29.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to seek a matter” Proverbs 25:2 (NK/V).


The secrets the Lord shows us each carry a weight of responsibility. Bill Johnson says, “By guarding the revelation of those who are not hungry, God is actually protecting them from certain failure to take responsibility for it. And so He hides Himself.1 Be careful what you ask, for you are responsible for the revelations the Lord shows you.

For example, when Saul had a powerful revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus, it became his responsibility to carry this revelation correctly. The greater the revelation, the greater the responsibility we have. Be careful about the level of disclosure you request, because you will be held accountable for it:

Of all who have been given much, much will be required; and of him to whom much is entrusted, much more will be required” (Luke 12:48b).

Later, in the same way, Jesus said:
Anyone who can be trusted with very little can also be trusted, and he who is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much” (Luke 16:10).

Jesus also said, “Do not give to dogs what is sacred; don’t throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, then turn around and tear you to pieces” (Matthew 7:6).

If Jesus shares a secret with you, it should be treated as a pearl. Be a good steward of what he reveals. There are people who, out of ignorance

or lack of spirit, would not accept our sharing God’s secrets with them as a good thing. They trampled what we shared under their feet, then turned around and tore us to pieces. Jesus warns us to use wisdom and discernment in knowing who to share secrets with.

A time to be silent and a time to speak.” Ecclesiastes 3:7

Not every secret the Lord shows us is meant to remain a secret forever. There may be a time for this revelation to be released. Many people share what God showed them too soon, and this cuts them off from deeper revelations because they cannot be trusted.

We need to be sure it is okay to share our information before we get ahead of God. Ask if it is wise to share your revelation. If you feel a sense of hesitation in your mind, hold back until you have peace about sharing. This could avoid a lot of criticism and a breakdown in trust. There is a time to be silent and a time to speak, and some secrets are revealed over time. Revealing them early would be like having a premature baby, very dangerous and much more work than if time had been given for maturation.

I heard Larry Randolph say, “The true test of a prophet is not what he knows, but what he dies knowing.

There are revelations that God will entrust to us, and we will be tested based on our faithfulness in keeping His secrets. Some of these things will be between us and Him for our entire lives, and He will hold us accountable for these secrets. There are things that, outside of a relationship, I only share with my wife. These are things that only she will carry throughout her life and part of her loyalty can be proven by how she keeps her secrets. Our relationship with Jesus our husband is similar…
