“For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to the light.”  (Mk 4:22)

The English Standard Version of this verse says it this way:  For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light.

I saw the above verse in a new light recently due to reading it in various versions, which kind of opened my eyes to it.  A verse that is similar to it is Luke 8:17.

“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, neither hidden that will not be made known and come into the open.”  (Lk 8:17 Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

The Jamieson, Fausset, Brown Commentary has this to say about Mark 4:22:

“I have privately expounded to you these great truths, but only that ye may proclaim them publicly; and if ye will not, others will. For these are not designed for secrecy. They are imparted to be diffused abroad, and they shall be so; yea, a time is coming when the most hidden things shall be brought to light.”

For me, these verses disclose that God, our Savior will reveal things to us.  They may be:  1) facts we need to know in relation to our jobs or business success; 2) information we need concerning our children or our family relationships; 3) wisdom for our marriages; or 4) a book, study or report that shows us an answer to a challenge that we’ve been facing. 

Revelation wisdom and knowledge may come through a friend; an overheard remark; a phone call; or some other unexpected means.  One thing for sure is that we have a Savior who loves us and meets all of our needs.  How privileged we are!
