Surprise!

Everything God made is waiting with excitement for God to show his children’s glory completely.

Romans 8:19

God is big on keeping secrets. We know this. Let’s face it, when you know everything there is to know, there are bound to be things you know that aren’t meant to be public knowledge. But maybe some of those secrets aren’t just secrets. Maybe they’re more like surprises. Like all of those things that God wants to reveal to me at the right time.

God doesn’t keep secrets from me just for the sake of keeping secrets. Some things He keeps from me for my own good. Other things He keeps from me because they’re for later. He’s waiting for the right time to turn on the lights and shout, “surprise!”

I know how excited I get when I have a surprise for someone. I can’t wait until I get to show it off. It’s a good thing. It’s something I’ve put time and thought into. I hope that the person I’ve prepared it for enjoys it. How much more excited must God be with all that He has for me. He is just waiting for the right time to show me His glory and – because of His promise – mine.
