God Knows What You’ve Done

“For God will bring every deed into judgement, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.” Ecc 12:14

One of the chief attributes of God is His omniscience. It is a word  comprised of two parts. The God sees everythingfirst part, omni, means “all,” and the second part, science, relates to knowledge. That means He is an omniscient God who knows everything you say, everything you think, and everything you do. 

The story is told of a wealthy grandfather who got fitted for a hearing aid. When he went for a routing checkup his doctor commented, “Your family must be happy to know that now you can hear.” The grandfather said, “Actually, I haven’t told them about the hearing aid. I just sit around and listen to their conversations – and I’ve already changed my will twice!” 

God wants to bless you, but sin and disobedience can keep that from happening. When David committed adultery with Bathsheba, he tried to conceal it. But God exposed him. In God’s eyes the only thing worse than sin is your unwillingness to own up to it. If you’re not willing to own up to it, you are in essence, not acknowledging the fact that you need God’s forgiveness. 

Finally, David came clean and prayed, Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight.” (Ps 51:4) Then he added, “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” (v 7) Note two important words: “hyssop,” which spoke of a branch dipped in blood during Passover, and “wash.” David needed a spiritual bath and God gave him one. The fact is, God knows your “every deed…whether good or evil,” and no matter how badly you’ve failed He will cleanse you, forgive you, and restore your joy.
