Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
The writer of the Book of Hebrews, up until this point in the book, declared that Jesus is greater than Moses and the holy angels. He also declared that every man and woman who is a “Follower of Jesus” must incorporate a Sabbath Rest-Day into their weekly routine. At this point, the writer stopped everything and said, “Nothing is covered before the Almighty. Everything is laid bare in His sight.” Even when one believes he or she has slipped something past the Lord, “He Already Saw That!”
As a little boy, I was taught early on by other kids on the block to play “Hide and Seek.” Somehow, the idea of HIDING from someone in a game, as children, or from someone in real authority, as adults, is appealing at any age. We hide stuff, we hide information, and we even hide dirty laundry. However, with God there is no “Hide and Seek.” We can try and hide, but He Knows! In fact, “He Already Saw That.” In the preceding verse (12b), the scripture says that God’s Word … “Judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” So before the act of physically trying to hide something from Jesus even happens, Jesus is already looking at the motives of our heart. There’s no hiding from Jesus, because … “He Already Saw That!”
Wow! Sometimes I forget that whatever I do, “You Already Saw That” before it even happened! This AM, I am indebted to You for forgiving me anyway, in every way, everyday! Amen
