Ezekiel 8:6-12 (NKJV): Furthermore He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations.” So He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, there was a hole in the wall. Then He said to me, “Son of man, dig into the wall”; and when I dug into the wall, there was a door. And He said to me, “Go in, and see the wicked abominations which they are doing there.” So I went in and saw, and there—every sort of creeping thing, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed all around on the walls. And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in their midst stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan. Each man had a censer in his hand, and a thick cloud of incense went up. Then He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, ‘The Lord does not see us, the Lord has forsaken the land.’ ”
Are you trying to hide sin? Are you doing things in secret thinking that no one will ever find out? What kind of torment is that causing in your life?
There is nothing we can hide from God. In fact, not only does He know what we are doing in secret, He says He will reveal it to others so that He will chastise us. Why? Because He loves us enough that He wants to help us to do better and be more righteous.
Is it time to seek Him and seek repentance?
Lord, search our hearts. Help us to not continue in our secret sins. Bring us to a point of repentance. Thank You that You love us enough to change us. In Jesus Name, Amen.
