You know when I am resting or when I am working, and from heaven you discover my thoughts. You notice everything I do and everywhere I go. Before I even speak a word, you know what I will say, (PSALMS 139:2-4 CEV)
I want to talk about life behind closed door. Everybody has got a secret. There are some things you do when nobody is watching. There are sins that easily ensnare you. It could be lying, stealing, fornicating, adultery, jealousy, gossiping, bribery, etc. The desire to sin propels us to shut doors, close windows, move to secret places but we forget that the Spirit of God is everywhere.
Psalm 139 points out that God knows every thought, word and deed, from whom there is no hiding place. He knows us inside out. Your neighbour might not see what you do, or know you evil intentions against him but God knows. God perceives your thoughts from afar. A song writter said “you may cover your sins that no one else would know but you cannot hide it from God.”
God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14 NIV84).
As a pastor, you may cover your deeds that no one else will know but you cannot hide it from God.
As a husband, you may cover your deeds that your wife would not know but you cannot hide it from God. The same applies to the wife who is unfaithful.
As a president, minister of state, doctor, manager, pilot, agent of the secret services, drug baron, etc. you may cover your deeds that no one else will know but you cannot hide it from God.
As a chorister, writer, instrumentalist, usher, church accountant, driver, member of a church, you may cover your deeds that no one else would know But you cannot hide it from God. God will bring every deed to judgement. He is God of justice.
” Where could I go to escape from your Spirit or from your sight? If I were to climb up to the highest heavens, you would be there.
If I were to dig down to the world of the dead you would also be there. Suppose I had wings like the dawning day and flew across the ocean. Even then your powerful arm would guide and protect me. Or suppose I said, “I’ll hide in the dark until night comes to cover me over.” But you see in the dark because daylight and dark are all the same to you. You are the one
who put me together inside my mother’s body,”
(PSALMS 139:7-13 CEV)
I will close with this; when you are tempted to close doors, windows, turn lights off, or sit in car to sin, remember God is watching. When you pick up phone or go on the Internet to lie, remember that God is watching from afar. You cannot hide your deeds from God. Live a holy life. Jesus is coming soon.
God bless you
