We often think that we can hide our mistakes and sin from God but nothing is hidden from God.
Our first Bible text tells us on how God constantly revealed the plans of the Syrian King to Elisha as they warred against Israel.
The Bible tells us in that Bible chapter that Elisha constantly warned the King of Israel during the battle and all their enemies plan became futile. (2 Kings 6:8-11).
I remember how I would hide all my sexual and sinful act from my parents but whenever a servant of God visits home to pray for the family, these sins I thought I hid was always made open and subsequently I started running from these men each time they would visit.

Before God, we are naked just same way we were created.
Trying to hide your sin and mistakes from your maker, would keep you in the bondage of such sin.
God is inviting us through His son Jesus Christ to come before His throne of Grace and obtain mercy when we fall.
God sees everything, He knows everything and there is no limit to the searching of His wisdom and understanding.
What is hidden from men are never hidden from God.
David thought he could hide his sins from the Lord when he killed Uriah and took Bathsheba his wife but God sent His prophet Nathan to David because nothing was hidden before the Him. 2 Samuel 11,12.

 

We must make our ways right with God by turning to Him for mercy.
A wise man confessed that his sins were not hidden before the Lord because he needed to amend the broken bridge of his relationship with the Lord.
Having an immoral affair can be hidden from your parents, your spouse but never from God.
Your stealing evil habit can be hidden from men but never from God.

Don’t try to hide it from the Lord, rather take it to God and ask for His mercy and strength to live above those weaknesses. Let me show you a little bit from the scripture on the personality you keep trying to hide things from.

 

Isaiah 40:12-15 NLT.

12 Who else has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?
who else knows the weight of the earth or has weighed the mountains
and hills on a scale?
13 Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord?
who knows enough to give Him advice or teach Him?
14 Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice?
does He need instruction about what is good?
did someone teach Him what is right?
or show Him the path of justice?
15 No, for all the nations of the world are but a drop in the bucket.
They are nothing more than dust on the scales.
He picks up the whole earth as though it were a grain of sand. 

 

Now you understand that nothing is hidden from Him.
Stop running from Him like Adam and Eve did in the garden rather run to Him and He will show you His salvation and cover your nakedness.
Run to Jesus today!

Study: Psalm 139:7-12

 

Shalom!
