Topic: That Secret Deal Is No Secret – Higher Everyday by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi | Date:Wednesday, May 23,2018.
“But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the land”(Acts 5:3)
Some car thieves snatched a car from its owner at gun point in Abuja, the Nigerian capital city, and drove away for hours, happy with their escapade. Unknown to them, there was a tracker in the car which enabled the police to trail and arrest them in Benin City. By means of modern technology, their secret deal was after all not secret. There is no such thing as a secret, because God knows and sees everything. Trying to keep a secret from God is like running away from your shadow.
Ananias and Saphira did not know that God saw and heard them when they agreed to lie to Apostle Peter, their leader. Your pastor, parents or teachers may not see you when you sin but God sees and records everything. “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” (Hebrew 4:13). The only way out is to confess our sins before God.
Challenge: Nothing is hidden from God.
Prayer: Lord, help me to avoid hiding anything from you.
