Uncovering Secrets

There seems to be an obsession about knowing the behind the scenes lives of the rich and famous. Of more interest is revealing their secrets, many of which they keep hidden from those closest to them. The tabloids and the paparazzi seem to have taken center stage. They go to great lengths to expose and uncover the details about celebrities and would-be celebrities. The truth is everyone has parts of their life story that is kept hidden, tucked away, and out of sight from the world. God, however, knows every part of every human’s life story from cover to cover, like an open book.

When it comes to your life, God does not need the paparazzi or the “Enquirer” to tell all. He does not have to stand by to catch a glimpse of your latest appearance or interaction with your spouse, child, neighbor, or the homeless person with the “will work for food” sign on the corner. God is fully aware of all you do and knows your heart, mind, and soul. He created you and is fully aware of your brilliance and your short comings. Sure, there may be unconfessed sin and transgressions that have not been acknowledged, but God still knows about every detail. He knows that you, like every other person on the planet, are a sinner. That is the reason He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to the world to die for you, so that your sins may be forgiven. Is there something you’ve been trying to keep from God? Perhaps there is a confession that you need to make to Him to get things right between you. In preparation for the New Year, why not have a heart to heart conversation with the Lord? Tell Him everything you have been meaning to about the your real life “secrets”. Go ahead! Now is as good a time as any. Forgiveness is just a confession away.

"My son,give glory to the LORD, the God of Israel, and give him the praise. Tell me what you have done; do not hide it from me." Joshua 7:19
