Have you ever thought said or done something and you say to yourself what I’m thinking or doing is Ok because no one will ever find out about this? I will be the only one who knows right? Guess again my sweet friend because the creator of the universe knows and sees ALL things. Nothing is hidden from God. Nothing is hidden from God. We learn this in Hebrews 13.
And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed, to the eyes of him, to whom, we must give account. Hebrews 4:13

Yep, even the ones that you may think are hidden from everyone else God knows. As a matter of fact, God knows more about us than we know about ourselves. To put it another way, that thing your hiding and thinking about another individual God knew it before you thought it. Let’s NOT leave out the one where you look at someone of the opposite sex as more than just a passerby.
For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret, that will not be known, and comes to light. Luke 8:17
But I say to you, that everyone who looks at a woman, with lustful intent, has already committed adultery, with her in his heart. Matthew 5
If Nothing is Hidden from God
WHAT SECRET SIN ARE YOU TRY TO HIDE FROM OTHERS? IS IT…
- Drug or Alcohol Addiction?
- Sexual Immorality?
The thing we must understand and grasp is that we don’t have to stay in bondage of these things. God sent his Son to take our place as an ultimate sacrifice for us. His blood ran red on Calvary to make us white. It’s important to realize maybe others do not know what goes on in our private lives but God does. He sees everything we do hears everything we say and records everything we think.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” Hebrews 4:12
I don’t know about you but some of the hidden thoughts that go through my mind are NOT very Christ-like all the time. One being during Church service this very morning and I had to ask God right then and there to guard my mind and protect my heart of this way of thinking. I know it’s NOT right but somehow these things whisper in my mind even though I don’t want them to.
Nothing is Hidden From God: Confess It
I let my current situation with my hearing loss and what I use to be able to do in my past to collide at times. I allow what I have lost to consume my thoughts and heart in weak moments. You see I feel less than because I can’t do the same things I use to be able to do. I let weakness tiptoe its way in and allow jealousy to take over.
I try with all that is within me to push the negative thoughts away however at times I’m helpless to do so. How wrong is that? Shame on me! I forget all about the eternal perspective on hearing loss.
Nothing is Hidden From God: Accept It
I love music and singing and yet the very thing I loved most was taken from me. Some days, it’s even a struggle to carry on a conversation due to the fact that I have such a drastic decline in hearing. Then I’m left observing the Worship Team singing Praises to God and at times I will find myself doubting God’s goodness for me. Why did God have to take that from me? What did I do so wrong that I am being punished for?
God Has a Bigger Plan For Us
I often got told by others that I am an encourager with words. When I would do posts of inspiration on my personal Facebook page I would always get wonderful feedback. I prayed for God’s direction for my life and got confirmation, and the rest is history, as they say.
My Resounding His Love Blog
One thing I have come to know without a doubt in my mind is that God is patient loving kind and understanding. He knows the real me and yet he loves me anyway and he also knows the real you and loves you just as much. He knows what’s in my heart and the motives behind them and he still loves me anyway and he knows your heart and motives and yet he loves you just as much. My heart may be in the right place but I find myself failing miserably. Do you find yourself failing like me?
God Knows What We Need to Change and Uses His Word to do It.
It seems to come at the right moment exactly when we need to hear it doesn’t it? It can be through a sermon a friend or reading God’s word for ourselves. God will be there for any of us, in our times of need, if we just cry out to him for help.

We know that our old self was crucified with him, in order that the body of sin, might be brought to nothing so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. Romans 6:6

Remember, there is no such thing as a secret sin to God. Have a one on one with God and give your fears, pain, and desires over to him! The more we reveal to Him the more He will reveal to you and I. Trust me when I sat that is the gospel truth!
