HIDE AND GO SEEK Part 2 - Jeremiah 16:17

HIDE and GO SEEK - Part 2 Click or Copy and Paste Link to LISTEN NOW!!! Jeremiah 16:17 NIV My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes. Greetings! BlogFam, Have you ever tried to hide? To hide means to conceal from sight, to prevent from being seen or discovered; to obstruct from the view of; to cover up; to conceal from knowledge or exposure. The truth is that we all have tried to hide someone or something. We might never admit it but we have all lived this very definition. We all have experienced being the one who was actively hiding someone or something, including ourselves. AND I am very sure that we have all experienced someone or something being hidden from us. For a countless number of reasons we hide and we keep people, places, and things hidden. There are just some things we believe should not be exposed to others and some things about ourselves that we believe is nobody else's business. Period. (FYI -I am not at all standing in judgment because when I use the term "all" I do mean to include myself.) In order to maintain the cover up, we do our best to make sure certain things are in place. We make promises. We sneak around. We label as confidential. We set passwords. We identify undisclosed places. We keep certain names out of our conversations and so much more, including threaten, blackmail, and run away all to conceal whomever or whatever we have decided deserves to be hidden. Actually, we can go through a lot in order to prevent someone or something from being seen or discovered. And the question we must all ask ourselves at some point is this: IS IT WORTH IT? Your answer may be yes. Your answer may be no. You may not be able to answer this question right now. But at some point, you must answer this question in your immediate response now or in hindsight review later. IS IT WORTH IT? And as I continue to reflect on our scripture, I am hopefully and dreadfully reminded that NOTHING is ever completely hidden. Jeremiah 16:17 NIV My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes. Now this verse gives me hope because it reinforces God's power and supernatural capacity to know the intimate details of our lives and of the universe. This verse also stirs feelings of dread for the exact same reasons especially since the Lord God has declared that our unrighteous relationships and activities, our sins, are no secret to God as well. So while others must make an effort to seek out that which is hidden. God already knows. God already knows EVERYTHING. Again, My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes. Friends, God already knows the good, the bad, and the ugly. God already knows about who or what you are trying to hide. AND for one reason alone, God does not look away from what we have hidden. GOD LOVES US!!! I do not want you to think that your secrets will remain hidden simply because God loves you. For it is God's prerogative whether your secret will remain hidden or if it should be exposed. You cannot dictate the prerogative of God and whatever God allows in this regard, all things will work together for the good of those who love Him and are the called according to His purpose. My sistas and brothas, God does NOT have to seek for whomever or whatever we are hiding. God already knows and God still LOVES you! And out of His abundant love for each of us , God will not abandon us while we hide... the someone, the something, or ourselves. Instead, God will use our cover up to convict us, to correct us, to carry us, to companion beside us, to clarify God's purpose to us, to caress us, to create new opportunities for us, to call us, to comfort us, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness....simply because He loves us more than we will ever know. So STOP trying to hide from God!!! And START allowing God to use whomever or whatever in hiding for His Glory!!! PS... I am still blogging on the go... More details in due season...
