Nehemiah 2:11-12 KJV
So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
 And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.
Depending on the situation, sticking to a code of secrecy brings you a lot of progress and advancement of purpose.
I spoke to a friend in the US who has achieved a great deal for a young man of his age. In our discussions, he made it clear that he covered much grounds because he kept a simple rule of secrecy. “Until is flowers, you don’t expose it for others to nib it in the bud.” Hmmm… this was an interesting comment, especially coming from someone who didn’t inform his friends when he was about to migrate from his country.
Nehemiah kept a similar code of secrecy. “He told no man what God had laid on his heart,” while he conducted his reccé at night.
This strategy of keeping silence may not work for all situations, but surely makes sense to an extent.
Maybe touting your every move with a trumpet won’t get you where you want to go. Sometimes it is good to subscribe to a code of silence so much grounds can be covered. I pray God gives you that foresight to know when to move stealthily and when to go loud.
Have a blessed day.
