TEXT : “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.” - Jeremiah 23:24.
COMMENT: Those who commit evils against their fellow men do all they can to hide themselves from being caught. They feel that once they are not seen by men and they are successful in their enterprise, that should be the end of the matter. They either do not reckon with the fact that God sees everything from His throne in heaven or they believe that He will not act against them. That God sees every action of the people on earth gives assurance to those doing righteousness that their labours will not be in vain and that the atrocities of the wicked will not go unpunished.
Ezekiel the Prophet was taken by God in vision to see the abominations being committed by “ancients” (the elders in the land of Israel) in Jerusalem. They were worshipping various idols secretly.(Ezekiel 8:12) For the abomination they were committing God declared that He will not spare or have pity on them when He deals with them in His fury. We should realize that God sees what ever we do or think. (Hebrews 4:13; Jeremiah 23:24) If we understand this, there will be no point in being dishonest because we are naked before God. If we do wrong in any way we should own up our faults and accept correction and determine not to make the same mistakes again. (Proverbs 28:13,14; Luke 17:3,4) Jesus Christ said: “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.” - Luke 12:2.
