Hiding Doesn’t Work

hide and seek 2Playing hide and seek, especially at twilight in our neighborhood, was a great game to play as kids. We had so many cool places to hide. It was hard not to laugh when the “it” person would walk right past your hiding place without seeing you.
This was a fun game to play as kids, but it’s a dangerous game to play as adults. Proverbs 28:13 states, “He who conceals his sin does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.” It’s better to acknowledge what’s going on in your life, which is what confession means, than to hide it. It is even better when we decide to do away with repeatedly taking our drug(s) of choice.
It’s easy, though difficult, to hide from others. But it’s crazy to think we could ever hide anything from God. He sees your every thought and action. He hears your every word. Why not get it out of your system and allow Him to change your life?
Getting it out means to openly acknowledge to Him what you’ve done or are doing and how you’re feeling. When you do you’ll experience forgiveness and mercy. Don’t stop there! When you openly acknowledge what’s going in your life to a fellow believer in Jesus so they can pray for you, you’ll experience healing or a changed life.
We all know hiding doesn’t work, so why keep doing it? Decide today to allow the Spirit to bring you a Bible Impact partner with whom you can open up with and who will pray for your victory.
