GOD SEES YOU - 13/02/2014
Yesterday’s message was titled “WHAT KIND OF VESSEL?”. Today’s message is titled “GOD SEES YOU” as given by Pastor E. A. Adeboye in Open Heavens Devotional (Adeboye, 2014). In today’s message, we have been asked to memorise 2 Psalm 139:2 “Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.” and read Psalms 139: 1 -3. Our Bible in one year for today has been taken from Isaiah 37:14-40:8 and Psalm37:21-33 (Adeboye, 2014).
The message is quoted below for our usual discussion:
“As a child of God, the fact that God knows all about you should give you assurance and confidence, While God sees and knows in detail what is going on around and inside of you, the devil does not have such ability. The Psalmist says:
"Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.” Psalm 139:12
God knows all that you are passing through now and He knows the history of your life. Sometimes, what you consider to be the origin of your problem is not. There was this young boy whose father had stolen the Raleigh bicycle of another man before he was born. So painful was this experience to the man who lost his bicycle that he placed a curse on the generations of the person that stole his bicycle. The man who stole the bicycle had died and his young boy had gone to school and successfully completed his national youth service program. However, the young man just discovered that anytime he ate rice, it turned out to be a serious life threatening meal for him. He was completely oblivious ofthe evil his father had committed and the curse that was placed on his generations, that they would die eating rice. The all-knowing God however revealed this to His servant, who counselled the young man to find the exact amount the bicycle cost and give it to the owner of the bicycle.This he did and his predicament stopped.
Another thing about this attribute of God in relation to how we comport ourselves is that we should not be deluded into thinking that we can cover up any misdeed. Remember David smartly got his evil deed with Bathsheba kept from being known to everybody. He thought he could cover up his act of adultery with Bathsheba and the subsequent murder of her husband, but he was foolish not to consider that God saw him. God sees all you are doing. Beyond that, He knows every thought you are thinking, even while the thought is still far away from you (Psalm 139:2). He knows it, Won't you rather fear this God and rightly comport yourself? Are you a brother, minister or pastor, indulging in fornication or adultery with your members? He sees you, and except you repent, you will pay dearly for it. Repent today, and you shall obtain mercy, and it shall be well with you.
Today’s action point is to pray that the all-seeing and knowing God will reveal to you any pending situation you ought to prayerfully go ahead and perform it.
God bless you for contributing into today’s discussion
