I may cover my sins that no one else would know but I cannot hide it from God. Our God is Omnipresent God, and He is Omniscience. He is everywhere, and He knows all things. He said in His Word that our secret sins are in the light of His presence. I believe sometimes God laughs when He sees us closing doors and windows. It is very funny anyway, because we cannot hide it from Him. Ananias and Sapphira thought they were keeping a secret. Hardly did they know they were digging their own graves. We cannot hide our sins from the Lord.
In Hebrews 4:13 (NIV) the Scripture says “13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” What account are we going to give? I don’t know who is reading this today. But I thank God that you are sacrificing some time to read this message. God sees everything we do. The next time you close doors, or windows, or decide to run away like Jonah did, just remember that Nothing in all creation is hidden from His sight. The reason why you are not dead like Ananias and his wife is that God is waiting for you to repent. 2 Peter 3:9 says “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
You don’t know what I do in private; neither do I know all you do in private. Our neighbours may not see us but God sees us from afar. I pray every day about my weakness, and I strive hard not to repeat the mistakes I commit. My strength alone cannot save me, for by strength shall no man prevail according to the Scriptures. Every individual on earth has got a weight and sin that easily beset him/her that is why Paul encouraged us in Hebrews 12:1 that “since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” NLT. I pray God gives us Strength in our weaknesses in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
What are you hiding from the public today? What sin(s) is/are slowing you down from running the race? Tell it all to Jesus. He has the Power to save you today.
Think about this song. We used to sing it in the Sunday school.
I cannot hide it from God,
I cannot hide it from God,
I may cover my sins that no one else would know
I cannot hide it from God.
My dear friend, the next time you close the door, windows, turn off phone, turn off lights, answer the phone to lie, or decide to do anything that is contrary to the Word of God, just LOOK UP and know that SOMEONE IS WATCHING YOU.
You cannot hide it from God.
God bless you
