TOPIC: OPEN SECRET

Read: Psalm 139:7-12

[7]Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?[8]If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.[9]If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;[10]Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.[11]If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.[12]Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

MEMORISE: The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good (Proverbs 15:3).

EXPOSITION
Whatever we do not want others to know about, we do it in the secret, with a view to hiding it from them. This human attitude, thinking that what we keep in the secret is completely hidden to everybody. When we do something wrong, we quickly tell lie to cover it up. When Cain killed his brother Abel, in the farm where no one saw him, he thought that the secret was kept. No wonder he was questioning God when He was asking him about his younger brother. To let him know that the evil thing he did was open to Him, God declares: What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground (Gen. 4:10).

King David arranged sudden death for Uriah to cover up the sin of fornication he committed with the latter’s wife, but God made the secret known later (2 Sam. 12:1-10). The dangerous thing about hidden sin is that, your failure to U-turn from one will drag you to another, even one worse than the first attempt. It would go on like that repeatedly, until you cannot help the matter again. David is an example. Eventually, He faced the consequences of the evil he did in secret. God said to him: For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun (2 Sam. 12:12).

Is there any secret you need to reveal now before your Creator, before it is too late? You must kneel down and confess your known hidden sins before Him who knows everything, even you, and is in every place at the same time (Psa. 139:7-12; Jer. 23:23-24). Do not forget the Word of God: He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy (Prov. 28:13). You are resorted as you confess your sin in Jesus’ name.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, I confess all my known hidden sins before You. Have mercy on me, in Jesus’ name.
2. Lord, help me to do away with hidden sins, in Jesus’ name.
3. I pray that sin shall no longer have dominion over my life, in Jesus’ name.
