1 Corinthians 4:1 (KJV): Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
The Bible is full of mysteries: The mystery of the kingdom of God (Mark 4:11); the mystery of His will (Ephesians 1:9); the mystery of Christ (Ephesians 3:4); the great mystery (Ephesians 5:32); the mystery of the gospel (Ephesians 6:19); the mystery of iniquity (2 Thessalonians 2:7); the mystery of godliness (1 Timothy 3:16); the mystery of the seven stars (Revelation 1:20) and many other mysteries.
But the greatest news is that we are STEWARDS of these mysteries! We are not seeking them; we POSSESS and CARRY them. God has entrusted them to us and we are the managers. What a privilege!
Think about it for a moment.
The Bible says that angels inquire into these things (1 Peter 1:12).
Angels are also curious about you because you have been entrusted with these mysteries.
You are truly a divine curiosity.
How then can you regard yourself as an ordinary person?
This responsibility is not without glory. The scriptures reveal that it is the glory of God to conceal a matter (Proverbs 25:2).
By virtue of these being mysteries, they are wrapped in glory.
You are the DEMYSTIFIER of everything that is mysterious about the person of God; everything in you oozes the person of God in His wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Hallelujah!
FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 13:11, 1 Corinthians 4:2
You are the DEMYSTIFIER of everything that is mysterious about the person of God; everything in you oozes the person of God in His wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you because it is given to me to know the mysteries of the kingdom. I am not just a steward of them, I am a faithful steward of these mysteries. Everything I do reveals who you are. Today, I walk in the absolute confidence that I am peculiar. Lord I cannot know such a divine truth and think like an ordinary person. As I do anything this day, I choose to carry the consciousness that I am a steward of mysteries. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
