January 16: Hiding From Him or Hidden In Him?

January 16-hidden“O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.”  (Psalm 139:1)

Many people have the fear that if they ever revealed to someone what they were really like, that person would reject them. There are many people who go through life thinking there is no way anyone could ever know them intimately and still love them. However, God knows us, better than we know ourselves.  And, He loves us more than we could ever imagine.

God is omniscient … He is all knowing.  And He knows all things about everything, and He knows it perfectly. He knows what we need before we pray. He knows and understands our suffering. He never misunderstands us or anything. We stand naked and open before Him. There is nothing He doesn’t know.

Because He is omniscient, we have to remember that His ways are better than our ways. We need to learn to trust Him and be obedient to Him because He knows where each path will ultimately take us. Because of His omniscience, He knows what is best for us. All that is requires of us is total trust and obedience.

Take a few moments today and consider the things that you have tried to hide away hoping that you won’t have to deal with them ever again. God already knows they are there and He wants you to know it’s okay; you don’t have to hide them away in the secret recesses of your heart. He has already made a way for you to deal with them. If it is sin, it’s under the blood; if it is shame, He’s already dealt with it.

If you’re hiding shortcomings, He knows all about them.  After all, He made you who you are and the way you are—you are fearfully and wonderfully made, by His hands and for His glory.

Are you hiding FROM Him or are you hidden IN Him?  Search your heart today.

Father, help me to “comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:18-19) Amen and Amen.

“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.  And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.”  (1 Cor 3:18-20)
