Turning Point; David Jeremiah – Not Exactly Sharpies…

The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.
Proverbs 15:3

 Recommended Reading: 2 Chronicles 16:7-9

A number of years ago, two men in Iowa tried to disguise themselves before committing a robbery. They didn’t use ski masks or stockings. No, their hapless plan was to draw beards and masks on their faces using a black marker. No one was fooled, and their mug shots sent the police and public into hysterics.[1]

You might say that guilt was written all over their faces.

We can never disguise ourselves from God or hide our behavior from Him. Hebrews 4:13 says, “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Jeremiah 16:17 says, “For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity hidden from My eyes.”

We can’t hide from God; He is everywhere! But for us, this is a cause of restraint, for the knowledge that God is watching us can help us resist temptation, and for rejoicing, for we are never out of His sight for a moment.

You just can’t hide from God. And that’s a good thing. Because God isn’t just watching you; He’s watching over you.
