What You See God has Seen

“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

One of Satan's subtle deceptions is that you can do things in secret that will never be revealed. This is simply not so. The Bible stresses that everything done in darkness will one day be brought to light. So before you commit yourself to do anything questionable, seriously ask yourself, “Am I willing for those around me to know what I am about to do? Am I willing for God to watch me participate in this activity?” - Blackaby Experiencing God Day by Day

It's so easy to forget.
It's so easy to cast the facts aside when opportunity strikes.
It's so easy to not take notice of or account of.

Realizing that God, the Holy, perfect, omniscient, omnipotent God of all has seen every single thought generated within the mind of every single creature since before time began.

Realizing that that same God knows every single intention behind every single thought and action should awaken something within us to be more careful, but it doesn't.  We just don't think about it.

Do you realize that everything you have thought, said and done will be revealed one day?  Your every intention, every thought laid bare before Him whom will judge?

When a child realizes that a parent is watching they tend to do one of two things.  Either submit to obedience or try to push the envelope in disobedience.

Many believers today try to push the envelope of disobedience. 

Read that again. 

Many believers today try to push the envelope of disobedience.

Many millions.  Not thousands.  Millions.

The intricate lies of Satan have swayed millions of Christians to the point of obedience being optional not required.

That idolatry is acceptable, that things that the Bible expressly speaks out against are acceptable.  All because of the lie that we as believers shouldn't offend unbelievers.  Really?  You DO realize that's the same as saying that sin isn't so bad, stinks to that Christ died on a cross for nothing.

The clay has no right to tell the potter how it should be like.

The creature has no right to shake a fist at its Creator.

Satan is a liar and the father of lies.

Deception is his MO. Method of Operation.

It's not that bad...
It's ok...
You deserve...
You aren't wrong...
You earned...
You need...
You really do want...
Go and do it...everyone else is...

Life in Christ is meant to be lived for Christ.  A Disciple lives as the Master teaches and directs. The Disciple gives up his or her rights when he or she commits to learning from their Master.

So who is your Master?

If it's Christ, do what He's doing, live in obedience.
If you find you are not obeying, then my dear reader, you have a significant problem.  As this post began every single thing you are doing will be revealed.

It's not too late to turn around and repent.
God is the God of second chances.

Do you realize He is waiting on you? His eyes scan the horizon every single moment of every single day looking for you to return to Him?  He cares not what you did. He is ready to forgive. He wants you to come back.

We also don't really need Satan's help.
Our sin nature is equally deceitful and deceptive.  Turn away from it.  Ask for forgiveness from Jesus who can heal, strengthen and protect.

Live your life without a need for shame later on. Because all will feel it when our lives are revealed in the last day. 

Live your life in obedience and see just how much living God has in store for you.
You think you're enjoying life because of your choices.  You haven't lived until you let God make the choices.

Think about that today.
