God sees everything.
God knows what you do when you are alone. He knows the thoughts you think. God knows you intimately because He created you. You can’t hide your actions from him. You may trick people, but you will never fool God. Whatever game you’re playing, He already knows the outcome. Understanding God’s involvement in your life will make you think before you act.
When I was single, someone introduced me to the “Eye” concept. Because my desire was to one day marry, I was to ask myself this question. “Would I want my future husband to know what I was doing?” In essence, even though I wasn’t married, I was honoring my husband before I ever met him. When you begin looking at your life through someone else’s eyes, you change your behavior.
God is your partner now. That thing you think no one knows, He knows. The beauty of God, He loves you, despite the thing. But just like honoring your spouse means not doing specific actions, respecting God’s role in your life changes your response to life.
Honor God with your deeds.
Ask yourself this simple question before you do something, “Will this honor God?” Immediately, you take the emphasis off of yourself and place it on God. Quick conviction comes when you begin to ask this question. The white lie doesn’t seem so white anymore. Seeking revenge isn’t as appealing as it once was. Disrespecting the bonds of matrimony becomes less attractive. Instead, God births a desire inside of us to please Him.
God’s presence in your life is nothing to fear. As His creation, He loves you dearly and wants the best for you. In Him, you find new life, one that separates you from your sin. Honoring God with your actions will change how you live.
Think before you act.
Lord, thank You for knowing each of us so intimately. We are hiding nothing from You. Forgive us for thinking we are more intelligent than You and that our actions don’t matter. Everything matters to You. Help us today to honor You with our actions. Even in our private moments, let us remember, You are with us. We are never truly alone because You are always there. In all things, the glory is Yours. IJNIP. Amen
