Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 12)
“No Place To Hide From God”
Text: 2 Samuel 12:13
“So David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”
And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die.”
The Truth that there is “No Place To Hide From God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Where can I hide from God Who is Everywhere at the Same Time - Who Knows Everything - and Who is All Powerful? There is No Place To Hide from God!
For one who Loves anything else or anyone else more than God, and disobeys Him, this Truth brings the Greatest Fear and Dread of God! Sin exposes the nakedness of man at his best without God - dust and condemned to death; “For the wages of sin is death....” (Rom. 6:23). This Fear and Dread of God is what drove David to Repentance: “I have sinned against the Lord.” David’s Repentance met God’s Mercy and Forgiveness - and Fear and Dread were Exchanged for Peace and Restoration. Like every seed of sin that’s planted there will be a harvest of pain and suffering.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”(Gal.6:7-8).
There is no “secret sin;” All sin is committed in front of God. He is Everywhere, He Knows Everything, and He holds the Power of Life and Death in His hand.
However, for one who Loves God, Trusts and Obeys Him, There Is A Place To Hide IN God! God’s Love for me is My Hiding Place.
“You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your word.” (Psa.119:114).
This Truth brings the Greatest Confidence and Solid Peace - no matter:
Where I Am
What Storm I’m Facing
What Goliath who’s taunting me. My God Is With Me and I stand in Confidence and Peace IN Him! Ooooh Rah!
“ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Rom.8:37-39).
Yes, there is No Hiding Place From God, for the sinner - But there Is A Hiding Place IN God for the Warrior! Let’s sing that old song:
“Rock of Ages cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee...”
