Verse of the Day: V17 “For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.”
Many people try to run away from God as they refuse to trust and obey God and His Word. Yet no matter, how far we try to run even to the ends of the world, the North or the South Pole, we can never hide from God because He is omnipresent or everywhere.
1. God Knows Your Ways
V17 “For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, …”
God knows your ways since He created you in your mother’s womb. He knows every single rein or inner part of you. There is nothing in you that God does not know.
Psalms 139:13-14 “For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
King David of the Old Testament acknowledged and praised God for fearfully and wonderfully creating him in his mother’s womb long before he knew that he would be anointed as the King of Israel and called a man after God’s heart.
2. God Knows Your Sins
V17 “For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.”
Just like King David, prophet Jeremiah knew that the nation of Israel could never hide their ways and iniquities or sins from God. They knew that they shall reap the grave consequences of their sins if they refused to repent and turn to God.
V18 “And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcases of their detestable and abominable things.”
3. God Knows You
V21 “Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.”
Let us stop wasting our time and life by running away from God but fully commit our lives to the Lord. The Lord is omnipotent (all powerful), omniscience (all knowing) and omnipresent (all present) and there is nothing He cannot do, nothing He does not know and no where He cannot go!
Prayer of the Week
Dearest God, please help me to be in the centre of Your perfect will, work and Word.
