Bible Strong-God Sees You and Me, March 2021

Our God is Omnipotent. Omnipotence means all-powerful. Christians regard God as having supreme power. … Being omnipotent, God has power over wind, water, gravity, physics, etc. God’s power is infinite, or limitless.

The One who sees and knows all things, good, bad and evil. He sees and knows each one of us. He is aware of our desires and every secret thing we have done. He knew us before we were ever formed in our mother’s womb and loved us even then. He knows every thought of our hearts, and the very number of the hairs on our head. He has written down in His book, the length of our days on earth before we were born.

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me.

Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, watching the evil and the good.

The Omnipotent God has been made known to us, in and through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord, His Word made flesh. For us to know Him more we must read His Word which tells us everything we need to know about God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. But few want to take the time to know our God, this Omnipotent perfect man. Only a remnant want to worship at the feet of Jesus.

Hebrews 4:12-13 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

The Scripture below describes the interaction with Jesus between two sisters. I sometimes am Martha. Are you?

Luke 10:38-42 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me! Martha, Martha, the Lord answered, you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.

I pray that you may have a desire to know everything you can of who Jesus is. You will only receive this by reading His Word and sitting at His feet. Don’t be a Martha.

We all fall short and we all sin. Sometimes privately sometimes publicly. Know this: there is no such thing as a secret sin. God’s eye is upon us.

1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.

Psalm 66:7 He rules by His might forever; His eyes keep watch on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

We think on some sin as secret because we hide it from others and sometimes ourselves. We refuse to acknowledge it. We justify our sin to ourselves to make us feel better. One example is pornography. The viewing of it is done in the dark, usually by oneself. For some it’s excessive drinking or drug use done in private to keep others from finding out. You may hide it from people on earth but you will never hide it from God. God sees you and me.

Job 34:21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, And He sees all his steps.

Luke 12:2 For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.

God sees the sin way before we do. By the time we see sin in our lives and the lives of others, it has already spread and multiplied. The actions taken in sin are a reflection of what lives in the heart. Sin will thrive in a heart full of lies, deception and lack of love. Many times it leads to death. We must root out sin as soon as we are aware of it. It is deadly and hurtful to others as well as ourselves.

Psalm 44:20-21 If we had forgotten the name of our God Or extended our hands to a strange god, would not God find this out? For He knows the secrets of the heart.

Proverbs 28:13 He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.

James 1:14 Each one is tempted when by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin and sin, when it is full grown, gives birth to death.

Jeremiah 16:17 For my eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from my face, nor is their iniquity concealed from my eyes.

God knows we are sinners. He knows everything from our past, future and right now. Some people fool themselves thinking no one will find out about their sin, wrongdoing, work of evil etc. Do not deceive yourselves. Even if people don’t know, God does. He sees all.

Jeremiah 23:24 Can a man hide himself in hiding places So I do not see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill the heavens and the earth? Declares the Lord.

Psalm 11:4 The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven;

His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

We must confess our sins and repent so we can be forgiven of them and then we are able to also forgive ourselves. Ignoring sin can lead to painful consequences. God won’t allow you to get away with sin. He hates sin.

Psalm 11:5 The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

Psalm 5:5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Repentance opens up our heart to allow God to dig down deep into the corners of our hearts and find all the pain, hurt and bitterness. He then begins healing and restoring you. He will wash away all your sin.

Acts 3:19 Repent then and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…

Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

If Holy Spirit convicts you of something you know you should not be doing, listen to Him. Do not delay but repent immediately. God is full of love, grace and mercy. He longs to heal and forgive you but He will not force Himself on you.

God is a God of love and also a God of wrath, when it comes to sin and the rejection of His Son Jesus. Don’t continue to willfully sin as it is like spitting on or slapping our Lord and Savior, after He died on the cross for all of us. God will give the exact judgment and punishment for every case.  

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.

John 3:36 Whoever believes in the son has eternal life, whoever does not obey the son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.

He stands at the door and knocks with open arms. Don’t wait too long. He may tire of knocking.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
