Daniel 2:47 - The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
Some men’s sins are not easily discovered. They package themselves in such a way that you may never discover their faults or sins. They are pretenders, they are hypocrites. They are masters of deception. What you will easily see in them is innocence, righteousness, and truth, and that is what they claim for themselves. They claim to be what they are not and use all means to cover their sin.
In Titus 1:16, the bible says, “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
It will take extra vigilance to discover such people. You must not be too hasty to justify them while condemning those accusing them. Don’t easily take sides with them. God knows them and will surely judge them. The church often takes decisions to judge sin. One of the decisions the church takes is to remove unrepentant members proven to be in witchcraft.
As the church is doing this, they go about crying and pleading their innocence, claiming that they are innocent of the accusations against them. Would you want to stand by them without having the facts? You will be judged! Go and ask God yourself because you are ignorant of the matter. Pray to God and ask, “Is what this person saying true? God, it is you that knows the heart of all men. Nothing is hidden from your sight. Is it true that this person is innocent as she claims?” Let God speak to you because some sins are committed inside water and you don’t live inside water, so how can you begin to defend a sin that was committed inside water?
Some climb the mountain or go to the sky to commit sin. Have you climbed up a mountain in the night before? Why are you defending sins committed on top of a mountain in the dead of the night? Go to God and say, “God I don’t know the truth about this matter, but thou knowest. Is it true? Are you behind this judgment?” Learn to diligently seek the counsel of God on hidden matters so that the Lord might not smite you along with the wicked. Learn to keep yourself pure from other men’s sins or other men’s matters.
Thought for the day: Learn to seek the face of God on all matters.
Song for the day: Shepherd of my soul, I give you full control…..
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 73-74; Romans 5
