Who are you sharing your secrets with?

“The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant” Psalm 25:14, NASB.

God shares His secrets with those who love Him. He confides in those who reverence Him. My sister, who are you sharing your secrets with? Have they proven themselves to be faithful and true and really love you? Samson found himself confiding in the wrong person. Delilah was conspiring with the enemy to capture him, and here he was telling her everything.

In my life, no one has cut off my hair and thrown me in prison, but I have experienced believing someone was for me, only to find out the person I confided in was not for me at all. There was something about Delilah that weakened Samson’s will. Maybe it was the sex, but whatever it was, our brother ended up with gouged-out eyes grinding grain in prison. This is the part when we have to be honest with ourselves about what our weaknesses are. Let’s examine our lives and understand who and what is our “Delilah.” Who or what causes us to share personal secrets that are not supposed to be shared with just anyone? Who or what weakens our will? Recognize it and avoid it.

My sister, let’s imitate our Father, confide in those who really love us, care for us, and who have shown over a significant length of time they can be trusted.

Prayer: Father, I receive your strength to forgive those who have betrayed my trust. And I ask your forgiveness for anytime I have betrayed someone else’s trust and confidence. You have shown me many things because you love me and want to see me prosper. Help me be spiritually discerning and wise. Everyone isn’t for me. Strengthen me when I feel like sharing everything too soon. Help me imitate you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Judges 16)

  1. Praise God!!! This verse is what I tell myself because of how others try to tell me I don’t know everything, which is true because I’m limited and ever learning. I share with them that I know The One who is Unlimited and knows All!!! I do need to get better of discernment with wisdom of those I share with my secrets. Father, I agree with this prayer:
    *Father, I receive your strength to forgive those who have betrayed my trust. And I ask your forgiveness for anytime I have betrayed someone elseโ€™s trust and confidence.

    Sister Kesha, thank you for this wisdom and wise counsel. Another area to examine myself to make better choices and wait on The Lord.๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’œ

  2. This is so true when Father reveals me and wants to work in my life I am always quick to run and share with my best friend who I thought was for me yet uses it against me later when all I was doing was being honest and excited for what was shown to me
    And
    To have him squash it like it was nothing
    Hurts
    So this is true keep it to myself till Father says share it
    Discipline is what I need to keep quit till Father says
    Amen
    Thank yiu for Truth
    Have a wonderfully blessed day

  6. This is another reminder from the Lord to be cautious of the people in my life.It is true by trusting the wrong people we can become severely damaged. All that glitters is not gold. Amen

  7. This was so accurate for me today. After having an appointment with my therapist today I have realized maybe she doesn’t share the same beliefs as I do as a Christian.

  8. Thank. You for this scriptures yes I do say more than I should and I’m so trusting to much but I learned that if people want to carry your garbage around after you have dumped it so be it,God knows my intentions to free myself although people do that to harm you. I ๐Ÿ’• love these devotionals and the different replies, but remember don’t be a Delilah or so trusting as Samson,just Trust God with your secrets it won’t go anywhere.
    Thank you Lord ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™ for all you do.

  9. Thank you for sharing this devotional of experience. It brings light into an area in which I need to pay attention and be aware of. For the Glory of God. Blessings, Shalom and Agape ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ“–โค

  10. This word is accurate and timely. I am one that shares things too quickly to people who I think I can trust, but then turn out to be ‘Delilahs’. I need GOD to strengthen me to keep my mouth shut and only speak when Holy Spirit leads me.

    It’s the excitement of what GOD is doing, but I need to be wise and discerning ๐Ÿ™
