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).
Well guess again my beloved, because the creator of the universe, knows and sees ALL things. Yep, even the ones, that you may think are hidden, from everyone else, God knows. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret, that will not be known, and come to light. (Luke 8:17).
As a matter a fact, God knows more about us, than we know about ourself. So my friends, 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.
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 5:28).
What do you try to hide from others, that God already knows about?
- Is it Pornography?
- Is it Gambling?
- Is it Drug or Alcohol Addition?
- Is it Sexual Immorality?
- Is it Abuse?
- Is it Cursing?
This list can go on and on, my dear Friends. 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.
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).
When you think on these things, does your hidden thoughts and actions, embarrass and shame you?
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.
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 it away, but at times, I’m helpless to do so. How wrong is that? Shame on me!
See Y’all, 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?
You see beloved, it’s taken me a long time, to come to the realization, that God has another plan for me, than I had for myself. I often got told by others, that I am an encourager with words. I would do posts of inspiration, on my personal Facebook page, and got 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 ourself.
God will be there for any of us, in our times of need, if we just cry out to him for help. For there is no respect of persons with God. (Romans 2:11).
Acknowledge our Sin, and God will be merciful to us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).
Beloved, Christ bore the wrath, that we all deserve. We can’t be released, from the bondage, that holds us captive, in our own strength. We must go to Jesus, and rely on his strength. 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).
Go to someone in your small group or life group, a Pastor or Elder, and have them Pray for you. Let them help hold you accountable, for whatever secret or hidden Sin, you are trying to break free from. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16).
When you get up each morning, let the first thing you do, is to ask God to guide your steps. Ask him to reveal to you, any known Sin or unknown Sin, that you may have in your heart. With God’s help, we can overcome, what holds us captive.
If I can help you in any way, or Pray for you spiritually, Please message me, and I will take all requests to God. Let’s help one another grow in Christ, As We Walk Together In Faith And NOT By Sight.
