FRIDAY 23TH SEPT.,2016
TOPIC: GOD KNOWS WHAT YOU’VE DONE
TEXT: Ecclesiastes 12:14 “For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil….”
One of the chief attributes of God is His omniscience. It’s a word comprising two parts. The first part, ‘omni’, means ‘all’, and the second part, ‘science’, relates to knowledge. That means He is an omniscient God who knows everything you say, everything you think, and do. The story is told of a wealthy grandfather who had a hearing aid fitted. When he went for a routine check-up, his doctor
commented, ‘Your family must be happy to know that now you can hear.’ The grandfather said, ‘Actually, I haven’t told them about the
hearing aid. I just sit around and listen to their conversations—and I’ve already changed my will twice!’ God wants to bless us, but lack of response to His grace of obedience can keep that from happening.
When David committed adultery with Bathsheba, he tried to conceal it but sin exposed him. In God’s eyes the only thing that’s worse than sin is the unwillingness to receive the grace provided because, the power of sin has been destroyed. This empowers you to quit sinning
Finally, David came clean and prayed, ‘Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight…’ (Psalms 51:4 NKJV). Then he added, ‘Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow’ (v. 7 NKJV). Note two important words:
‘hyssop’, which is a branch dipped in blood during Passover, and ‘wash. David needed a spiritual bath and God gave him one. The fact is, God knows your ‘every work whether good or evil and no matter how badly you’ve failed He has cleansed you, forgiven You, and restored your joy. Consequently, it is always never too late to be washed by Jesus blood because, He became sin and died for you and l. We are His righteousness and we should
declare it always believing and willing to remain in Him forever.
