Can anything really be hidden? Oh, I know, we try and there are some things that get buried from the world’s eyes. But from God?
Nothing is hidden from Him. He sees it all. Responds to it all.
“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.” Psalm 139:1-6
But here is the really great news: He forgives it all if we ask. There are things we want to be swept under the rug, erased, hidden away so that no one ever finds out, but He knows. Nothing is hidden from Him but when we come and ask for forgiveness, Jesus washes away every sin with His blood that was shed on the cross. Every sin, known or unknown, is forgiven and then taken away from us as far as the east is from the west and buried in the deepest sea.
The book of Revelation tells us that in heaven there will be no sea. Could that be the reason? Not even a hint of the place where our sins are buried will exist.
Yes, He knows.
Yes, He forgives. Such knowledge is too wonderful!
Thank You, Lord, for Your care, Your forgiveness, Your watchfulness. We love You.
