God sees everything – 20 February 2023

By Benescke Janse van Rensburg

Bible text(s)

3The LORD sees what happens everywhere; he is watching us, whether we do good or evil.

Proverbs 15:3GNBOpen in Bible reader

21He watches every step we take.

13There is nothing that can be hidden from God; everything in all creation is exposed and lies open before his eyes. And it is to him that we must all give an account of ourselves.

Hebrews 4:13GNBOpen in Bible reader

I recently read this saying: “Remember, what you are doing behind someone’s back you are doing in front of God’s eyes.”

Stop and read the saying again.

Are you satisfied with how you are currently living? Are you proud of how you do business? Are your conversations clean or filled with gossip? Is there someone outside of your marriage to whom you are sometimes too kind? Are you maliciously persecuting someone because you took offense?

In Proverbs 15:3 we read: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” (NIV) In Job 34:21 we read: “God looks at everything that we do, and He sees every step that we take.” (The Bible for the Deaf) And in Hebrews 4:13 we read: “And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (ESV)

God is a Holy God. Let’s renounce things that cause a blockage in our relationship with him. That way we can go to him boldly – and hear his voice clearly in our lives. God bless.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for your grace in my life. Please show me if there is anything in my life that you are not pleased with and strengthen me to renounce it. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen
