Pardon the technical difficulties (I need my computer back)...let me start over...
"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
but the glory of kings is to search out a matter."
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because the King of Kings has made me a king and a priest, and the glory of kings is to search out the mysteries that God has concealed. As in the legend of King Arthur and the sword in the stone, I am proving my divine rights to royalty by pulling the sword of the Lord (Hebrews 4:12; Ephesians 6:17) out of the Rock, Who is Christ! The part of the sword (Word) that is exposed is the logos Word given to everyone. That Word shows the way to salvation and all of its benefits and is available to "whosoever will." But the part that is hidden deep in the stone (the Cornerstone that the builders rejected) is the rhema word for my life, destiny and individual purpose. It is the word that is written to me only. No one can extract that sword from the rock (Rock) but me, and I assume my responsibility in finding my own path – working out my own salvation – surviving my own Garden of Gethsemane – so that I can pray, alone, through my own drops of blood for God's perfect will to be done in my life!
"Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor? Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him?' For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen."
