“You light a lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness.” Psalm 18:28 NLT
We all have secrets…
She fooled a lot of people. When her ruse was exposed, headlines reflected the shock, outrage and betrayal many felt. She had lived as a black woman. Fought for racial justice as a black woman. Crafted a career based on the fact that she was a black woman. Until someone discovered she is white.
He campaigned as a man with strong Christian values. His constituents trusted him. Until his porn addiction was exposed.
She is everyone’s go-to friend. Always happy. Always encouraging. Always willing to help. Kids, husband, immaculate home, volunteer, business woman, Sunday school teacher… no one knows how she does it all. If only they knew she’s dying inside…
Consider these three life stories through God’s all-knowing eyes:
God knew the “black” woman was really white and He knows what drives her to be something she is not.
God knew the politician was living a double life and why he allows the darkness to consume him.
God knows the “happy super mom” is anything but happy and why true joy eludes her.
God knows the dark secrets we try to hide behind closed doors… all of them. And He loves us anyway.
God also knows how to replace them with that which will bring us true acceptance, love, identity and joy. God knows, but He won’t force what He knows on us. You have a choice. Today you can choose to listen to what He knows, do what He says and surrender to His plan… or not.
Your view of God really matters…
It’s useless to pretend God doesn’t’ know what’s in your closet of secrets. The good news is; you aren’t going to surprise or disappoint Him with new secrets! Go ahead and pull one out of the closet. Ask God to shine His light on your darkness and show you how to say “no” to the lies you’ve believed and “yes” to His truth about you and His love for you.
Read God’s Word Today…
“Oh Lord, You have examined my heart and know everything about me.” Psalm 139:1
God, because You know everything I will come to You with all my questions, concerns and worries.
