Title: Can We Hide from God?
Topic: Naked and Exposed
Scripture: Hebrews 4:1
Some feel as though there is no God (Ps. 14:1), God is not there or He cannot see. Their conditions convince them because of the darkness they are in, that they are securely hidden from Him, carrying on in sin with confidence. In reality, the very actions they commit attest to their unspoken and hidden thoughts. They find themselves making some confessions for all to hear but their daily actions are contrary from the words being spoken. Let it be known that before a word is even on our tongue, the Lord knows it completely (Ps. 139:4). In fact, God knows our very thoughts (Ps. 19:11). The Lord knows everything about us including when we rise, when we lie down and everything in our heart (Ps. 139:3).
The good news is that Jesus came to turn darkness into light (John 8:12). Today, decide to surrender your life to Him (Josh. 24:15) and when His eyes search throughout the earth to find that you are coming to Him just as you are, He will strengthen you (2 Chor. 16:9). Remember, nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable (Heb. 4:1). We are unable to deceive God for the Lord searches us and knows us (139:1). He came to change us so that we can become His disciples to enlarge His Kingdom (Matt 28:19). So, go ahead get bare and reveal your heart, mind and soul to God. Give Him a try; you have nothing to lose but everything to gain!
For he says, “At the right time I heard you, and on a day of salvation I helped you.” Listen, now is really the “right time”! Now is the “day of salvation”!
