Hidden and Revealed #831

25  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. 26  Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. (Matthew 11:25–26, NKJV)

God the Father, the Lord of heaven and earth, has spoken truth to us all “by His Son” (Heb. 1:2). The same truth that is readily disclosed to those with humble hearts (“babes”) is concealed from the sight of those who are “wise and prudent” in their own eyes. Jesus prayerfully exalts the Father for making the kingdom of heaven available to all who humble themselves “as little children” (Matt. 18:3). So then, with humble hearts, let us “look into the perfect law of liberty and continue in it” to be blessed by God (Jas. 1:25). Such is true wisdom and saving faith.
