“Nothing is covered up, that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore, whatever you have said in the dark, shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms, shall be proclaimed on the housetop.” Luke 12:2-3 ESV
I read this to my son the other day. I also told him that he should memorize this verse and keep it in his heart to tell his friends when they tell him something they might be doing wrong and trying to keep it a secret. God knows all! He sees all. No need to hide anything from Him. It WILL come out in the open. PS, I didn’t seek this verse out for him or anything like that, it was in my daily reading and I decided to use it as a teaching tool. :) But isn’t it also so good for us?! A good reminder that we shouldn’t live our lives in secret places, trying to hide things when God already knows it all. I want to encourage us all this month (including me) to live a life free of secrets or hidden things. Allow God to be the center of all we do. When we do this, we won’t want to hide a single thing from Him or those around us. In fact, we will want to shout God’s goodness from the mountaintop. :) God bless.
In case you missed last month's verse...
“And the Lord answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it, for still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end, it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:2-3 ESV
You’ve also heard the verse in the Bible that talks about when we don’t have a vision, the people perish. Make a goal this month! It can anything from life goals, work goals, family goals, church goals, etc. But in everything you do, strive to be better at it this month. I’m speaking to myself as well. There are things I need to get my butt in gear with and complete! This is the month. I encourage you to write a goal and a notecard and attach it to your mirror. Look at it each day until it’s fulfilled. Don’t give up on those dreams. God bless. Happy New Year.
