Now this secret was not disclosed to people in former generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit, — Ephesians 3:5
God’s plan is always unfolding. Throughout history God does new things in different times and seasons. This Divine Secret that Paul is talking about was not disclosed to former generations. God is always bringing new revelations. In each of our lives there is so much more to be discovered.
This is true on an individual level, and on a church level as well. God is revealing His purposes for each new season in the life of a city, a nation and the world. It is so important for God’s people to be seeking to hear God’s voice, to understand what He is saying today. We can’t survive on yesterday’s bread. We constantly need to be eating. In the same way we constantly need new revelation.
God still uses prophets and apostles to unfold His divine strategies and plans. He still speaks. The problem is that too often, no one is listening.
Ask God for fresh bread, for a new revelation. Ask Him to help you be open to the voice of His prophets in your world.
