There is a great deal of controversy today surrounding our privacy and the lack thereof. Our government seems to have taken great lengths to ensure that your privacy be limited. Every aspect of our lives seems to be monitored in some fashion.
Government agencies can retrieve records of every transaction that you perform. From the things you purchase at the grocery store right down to the type of toilet paper you use.
– Every store you shop at more than likely has security cameras
– Hidden cameras make videos of practical jokes being played on people
– Spy cams and “Nanny Cams”
– You can even view your home as it would be seen from space with satellite cameras
We are being closely scrutinized today from every corner of our lives. But, even as tenacious as the government is, it has its limits…But an even HIGHER POWER is watching and sees it ALL!
This HIGHER POWER is not seeking to infringe on our privacy, but we will be called into judgment one day by God Almighty. Every aspect of our lives will be vividly called into view one day. And those events will have one of 2 labels Good or Evil.
Amazing how differently we act when we know we’re being recorded. The most frightening aspect of this whole scenario could be that not only will our actions be called into question but our thoughts and intents as well. There will be no secrets with God.
Consider these passages…
Psalm 19:12 – Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
Eccl 12:14 – For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Daniel 2:22 – He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
Luke 8:16-18 – No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.
