TOPIC: Shall God Not Search This Out?
Exod. 20:23; Judges 2:19; 2Kings 17:29; Psalm 44:20-21
James 5:5“Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.”
Any moment spent in God’s presence is an opportunity for uncommon divine visitation. Today’s devotional will grant you an audience which the King of kings and Lord or lords. God cannot be deceived. He has the ability to detect the smallest act of deception. No matter how hard we may try to hide anything, God’s all seeing eyes will detect it.
When I was in junior school, I was taught a song that says, “Break down every idol in your heart.” I could not understand it because I thought it was not possible, since I was a Christian; and we did not worship idols in our house. My idea of an idol was the carved head of Ogun (the god of thunder) or any other graven image. But as I got mature, I began to understand what the Lord means by breaking down the idols in our hearts.
The Bible says, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). When the heart is filled up, it would pour out through the mouth. Those who are talkatives most of the time speak from their hearts and not from their brains. That which a person has in his heart will eventually come out. Sometime ago, I was counselling a couple. The wife said something and the man got angry and said that the god of iron should break the head of her father. I said, “But you are a Christian, why are you talking like that?” He said he was sorry.
The truth is that that was how his heart was working. You may try to hide, but a time is coming when you will be exposed. The Bible says that everything is naked before God. All fornicators and adulterers are naked before God like images on a television set. Do not join the company of those who have forgotten the name of God and begin to stretch hands unto strange Gods.
Beloved, God knows the secrets of your heart. So, He can easily find you out.
The shortest distance to the realm of hope is the highway of godly dreams.
You shall not pray when the prayer won’t be accepted in the name of Jesus.
HYMN – Oh, worship the King
Oh, worship the King, all glorious above.
Oh, gratefully sing his power and his love;
Our shield and defender, the Ancient of Days,
Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.
Oh, tell of his might; oh, sing of his grace,
Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space;
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
And dark is his path on the wings of the storm.
The earth with its store of wonders untold,
Almighty, your power has founded of old,
Established it fast by a changeless decree,
And round it has cast, like a mantle, the sea.
Your bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In you do we trust, nor find you to fail;
Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,
Our maker, defender, redeemer, and friend!
O measureless Might, ineffable Love,
While angels delight to hymn you above.
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall sing to your praise.
