In the Garden of Eden, God called to Adam and Eve and asked where they were, not because HE didn’t know, because HE knew they needed HIM, and that confession of thier sin was required. But they answered HIM and said that they realized that they were naked and were shamed, so they hid. God sacrificed the first animal to clothe Adam and Eve not because HE had a problem with their nakedness, but to cover their shame.
This was part of my study today, and was so very sweet to me. We really are not far from that same situation. We still fall to traps the enemy sets, and we still hide from God like we can! HE still wants us to confess, not because HE doesn’t know but because we need set free from it. HE still covers our shame, but sacrificed HIS son to make that possible. I am so taken in by the Lord’s pursuit of us, and the love that covers us. When I think of how I hung my head and moved to the back to stay out of sight, and then how the King of Kings has always been there trying to cover me…
Just like Adam and Eve we need to come into the light and allow him to cover us, to take away the shame, remove the sin as far as the east is from the west. It requires us allowing HIM to shine the light through every bit of us, and leave no dirty little secret undisturbed. You know, those little secrets the enemy uses against you. Don’t let him have that kind of power over you. Healing isn’t only for me and a choice few, its there for everyone.
(Thinking of Ross King-Clear the Stage…a totally awesome song but couldn’t find it on line…will post the words asap.)
I promise you in Jesus precious name, bring the secrets into God’s perfect light, and let HIM cover you, I know that HE will, HE loves you so much, and HE really has a wonderful life waiting for you and not just in heaven…but right here. Bring it to the light, its too heavy anyway….Your King wants fellowship with you, and you will never 😯 HIM.
