“But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets”. (Daniel 2:28a)
To ‘reveal’ means to ‘show’. If you do not know the secret of life, you will go through life but end up with nothing. That is why God says in his word, I will show you the secret. The Bible recorded that Esau was marked for “the blessing”, but Jacob transformed himself, pretended to be Esau and took the blessing. Esau was still desperate to get some blessing from his father and after a long petition to his father, Isaac pronounced the following on him: “And by the sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.” (Genesis 27:40).
Isaac told Esau that he will live by the sword. What it simply meant was that Esau would fight battles all the days of his life but if Esau was able to have dominion, then he would break the yoke from off his neck. In other words, Isaac said to Esau, the day you discover the secret of your brother’s strength, then, you will break his yoke from off your neck.
It was sad that Esau never discovered the secret of Jacob’s strength, which is why till today, the generation of Jacob still has dominion over the generation of Esau. Until the secret is discovered, the yoke remains unbroken.
There is a secret to your breakthrough. The moment you discover that secret, you will be free and God will reveal the secret to you.
In our text today, Daniel said, there is a God that reveals secrets. He is the all-encompassing God. You must seek His face today and obtain the secret of your breakthrough from Him.
