Secret divulgence
Secret revealed

Many times we fail to realize the fact that we need to keep some issues that have to do with us to ourselves.

As long as they are not harmful if they are not revealed.

Truly, nothing is hidden before God but man is limited as he can only know what he is being told.

There are certain people in your life that doesn’t deserve to hear the stories of your past, present and your future plans.

If they know them, they will either use them against you, to abuse you, castigate you or knock you down.

In this article I will be revealing them to you. Here is my list of those you should never reveal your confidential and covert issues(secrets) to:

• Secret should not be revealed to a day-old friend

It is an act of stupidity to reveal everything about you to a day-old-friend.

The person you have not really known his temperament, character, beliefs and behaviour.

To tell a person you just met today everything about you makes you vulnerable to that person to use your secrets against you.

It is dangerous to reveal your past, present and future plans you have hidden to someone you have not deeply known.

These people may look like a potential destiny helpers but they are not. Be careful! Read this;

“I have been told by the word of the Lord: ‘You must not eat bread or drink water there or return by the way you came.” The old prophet answered, “I too am a prophet, as you are.

And an angel said to me by the word of the Lord: ‘Bring him back with you to your house so that he may eat bread and drink water.’” (But he was lying to him.”- 1Kings 13: 16-18

A young prophet was deceived

That young prophet had just met that old prophet for the first time and maybe he thought he had met a good person who would help him.

So, he revealed everything God told him to that old prophet and the man used his secret against him.

• Secret should not be revealed to a cunning person

There are some people who are as cunning as Delilah. The reason they have decided to be in a relationship with you is to know your secrets.

They will utilize every little time they spend with you to ask you of your past.

Also, your present plans, how you have been thriving, future plans and so on but they will not tell you their own secrets.

Judges 16:16 says and it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death.”

Delilah kept asking for Samson’s secret, she got it and used it against him. Beware of those who ask you sensitive questions!

A person that is powerless to help you.

Here, I am not referring to those who are poor or the less privileged.

If you share your life’s secrets and your past with someone who is not in the situation to help you, he will add to that problem.

There are professional Counsellors who have been professionally trained that you can go and meet for counselling as confidentiality is guaranteed.

Also, there are few true men of God out there who can proffer spiritual solutions to problems.

You can reach out there to them for help but don’t go to a person who will laugh at you when you finish sharing your secrets.

• Secret should not be revealed to your foes

Wisdom is profitable to direct and by their fruits you shall know them.

By intuition, you can discern those who dearly love you and those who don’t love you at all.

The set of people who love you deserves to know you to some extent but those who hate you does not deserve to know your secrets at all.

Hide the progress of your life from your enemies as much as possible.


No wonder why God divinely took Joseph away from his brothers reach until he became a successful person.

Your foes are those who can harm you if they know much about you.

Be careful! Joseph only told his brothers his dream and they tried to kill him.

May the Lord help us all.

Please, make your contribution.
