What have you been doing that you hope no one ever finds out about ? Sorry – it will soon be exposed. I am not saying that – God says it in the bible. God’s presence is always moving over the surface of mankind. He is pure and undefiled light. Just by His light being present, darkness is exposed.
No matter how dark a closet is, once the light is turned on, every spider, every lost shoe, all dirty laundry gets exposed. God loves you so much that He is willing to do whatever it takes to reveal the very darkness that you have been trying to hide.
The bible tells us very clearly that everything that we have done in secret will all one day come to light. It also tells us that God is going to do everything possible to make sure that you don’t end up in hell. I would rather have my sins and wrongs exposed on earth than when I stand before God. God often warns us privately before we are exposed publicly.
God speaks to us in many ways: You may have a dream of what you are doing wrong. Guilt may start to consume you. Everything that used to be right now seems all wrong. Friend, heed the warning. When God speaks it’s time to listen. If we don’t repent when He exposes us privately the day is coming when your sin will be found out publicly.
God is gracious but He is not stupid. Are you having an affair? Are you involved in pornography? Are you involved with prostitutes? Are you harboring resentment and bitterness in your heart? Are you lusting in your heart? Are you stealing?
Spend some time right now and ask yourself: If I were to die tonight what would I be ashamed to confess before God? Why wait? Spend some time right now and expose your sin to God and ask for the power of the Holy Spirit to turn from it. Better to deal with hidden sins now then face the consequences of eternity.
