A mother lectured her daughter about how important it was to keep family secrets private. One day she got in trouble in school and the principle called her mother to give her the information.
After scolding the girl, she said, “Now you must go to your room and ask God to forgive you.”
Later, when the family sat down for dinner she asked, “Sara, did you ask God to forgive you?”
“No, Mom, I didn’t,” said Sara. “I knew that you wouldn’t want Him to know about our family scandals!”
He had no doubt that everything he did and everything he said – whether good or bad – was seen or heard by God.
True for Job. True for us. Nothing that we have done or will ever do will escape His notice because nothing can be hidden from Him. As Job was speaking of the life he lived in the presence of God, he was able to say, “I have not committed any sin in my heart against God or my neighbor.”
Prayer: Help us to realize, Lord, that we cannot hide anything from You and to live lives free of sin. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Job 31:3-4 Is it not destruction for the wicked, And disaster for the workers of iniquity? Does He not see my ways, And count all my steps?
