Isaiah 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, And their works are in the dark, And they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
I am sure you remember when your children were small. They would cover their eyes, and you disappeared. If they couldn’t see you, then you were not there. Somehow God’s people often get to that point. They begin to believe that God can’t see them if they do not see Him. They cover their eyes and think that fixes the problem.
God’s people in this passage of Scripture were trying to hide what they were doing from God. They thought that if they couldn’t see, then neither could God. They wanted to do things and keep God from realizing it. Makes me think of people that would never cuss in the church house because they don’t want to offend God. They believe somehow He is limited to Holy Ground. Nothing could be further from the truth. He owns the entire world. There is no place you can go and not be seen. Nothing you can do and hide from Him. He is God. He hears and sees all, at all times.
Do you try to act like you do not believe in God so you can pretend He isn’t there? It doesn’t change a thing. Be honest. You’re denying it doesn’t make it any less the truth. Today is the day to turn from your sin and trust God. Be saved today.
