Praise be to the name of God forever and ever… He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.” -Daniel 2:20-22 (NIV)

A year or so ago I decided to make Daniel’s prayer of Thanksgiving my own prayer of anticipation. I had so many questions. My heart was torn and in need of wisdom regarding the spiritual well-being of many loved ones.

One life in particular, a son, threatened to bring me to despair. I remember when he memorized Bible verses for VBS, his profession of faith in front of the church and his baptism. And then what happened? I had no answer.

I wanted God to reveal the deep and hidden things. I asked Him to uncover the truth and give me the wisdom to pray against the schemes of the enemy. Most importantly, I praised God in advance for His answers and His power to save lives.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard to pray this for people you love. My imagination wanted to run to all the most horrible things that could be uncovered. That’s a tactic of the enemy! He hopes we’ll be afraid to know the truth, and so we’ll just leave it covered up. Demons already know the truth on which we should stand firm:

You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” -John 8:32 (NIV)

Recently, in the process of cleaning out closets, my husband dug through a suitcase left behind by this same son after graduating from college. He sensed Holy Spirit prompting him to keep digging. What he pulled out was a precious treasure. It was his Bible, and tucked inside was written our son’s declaration of faith to the Lord God.

Our son is on his own faith journey. His story isn’t complete. Mine either. And we have hope because God revealed a deep and hidden truth. Are you seeking truth and wisdom from God? Don’t be afraid to ask for the hidden things to be revealed. Trust Him. He is faithful. The truth God reveals will set you free, especially from fear. Be free in God’s truth and light!
