If you reveal your secrets, others will know what you value. They’ll know what’s in your heart. They’ll know what motivates you.
But what if things don’t go as well as you planned, or if you seem like an utter failure? Then what you revealed can and will be used against you. They’ll use it to mock you and make fun of you.
David experienced such mockery too.
“All who see me mock me; they make mouths at me, they wag their heads; “He trusts in the Lord; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, for he delights in him!” (Psalm 22:7-8)
So It’s obvious that David revealed his trust in the Lord. They knew what’s in his heart. They knew that he considered God as his deliverer, rescuer, and the one he delights in. So when trouble came to David, they used it against him.
But it was good that he revealed his trust in the Lord. Because it was the Lord who ultimately delivered him from all his troubles.
Go ahead. Reveal your secrets. Let others know who you trust. Let them know that your future rests in God alone. Later, they will recognize God’s work in you.
