“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words.” (Deut 29:29) No man can fully understand God’s ways but He has provided us with what we need to know regarding salvation and following Christ in His Word. “The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” (Psalm 19:7) This is why it is so important to be in the Word so that it is downloaded into you to be uploaded when needed. The Lord tells the Israelites, “But the word is very near to you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life…” The Lord has Moses write down a song “that this song may be a witness for Me against the children of Israel…for I know the inclination of their behavior today, even before I have brought them to the land of which I swore to give them.”
God knows the hearts of the people and He is still on a pursuit to save them through the Savior. “…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) He knows that none of us are fully capable of obeying the law and that we are all in need of a Savior so He is working His plan to send His Son. Under the new covenant with Christ the Lord will send the Holy Spirit upon his people which will give His people a heart that desires obedience to the Lord and He will wash away all of their sins through the blood of Jesus. “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds…I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” (Hebrews 10:16–17 from Jeremiah 31:31-34)
