So what we cover, ultimately God will uncover. Have you noticed that? I have dealt with so many situations, so many people in my life here over the last decade, and they have played the cover up game and they have projected one thing, but in reality they were another. And I have known intuitively, I have known scripturally, after a while, the truth will come out. After a while, Scripture says, “Our sins will find us out.” And when the reveal happens, so often it’s not a pretty thing.
It’s time to be authentic and real. Because what we cover, God will uncover; yet, the last part of verse 13 says what we uncover, God covers. Now how sweet is that? That is totally off the charts. “But whoever confesses—” What does the word confess mean? The word confession means to agree with.
When I’m confessing my sin, my shortcomings, my fatal and futile attempts at changing, I am just telling the truth before God. When I confess my sins to God, God is not like, “Oh, Ed. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know you committed that moral turnover. I didn’t know you thought those thoughts. I didn’t know you said those hurtful words. I didn’t know—” No, you’re not going to surprise God. He knows.
There’s no such thing as a secret meeting. There’s no such thing as a cover up or a clandestine operation. God sees it all. And here is where men really struggle—a lot of you autonomous alpha males in the house “Man, I—man, I just am who I am. You know, I am just that way. And, you know, my fate, my relationship with God is a personal and private thing.”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
