‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ 1 John 1:9 KJV
When Adam sinned, he hid from God, so did his wife, and so do other humans,a lot of times, when sin occurs. It is ,therefore, a human habit to try to stay away from God when sin occurs.
This habit is,however,not beneficial. Who can hide from God?
When one commits a sin, God sees it immediately. He knows. It is a very futile mission to try to hide transgressions from the Lord. He is omniscient!
Again, who can hide from the Lord? NO ONE.(See Jeremiah 23:24)
Should you commit a wrong, do not hide from God. He is the only one who can help you get back on the right track.
Satan can’t help you. He could even encourage you to hide or stay away from God’s presence, because he knows that God’s love heals. He knows that God will forgive you. He knows that when you are forgiven, you are safe, and he doesn’t want you to be safe.
He wants you scared, uncertain and dejected, which will happen if you hide. But if you come out into God’s presence, honest and repentant, God will forgive you, just as 1 John 1:9 assures.
If you have been shying away from God, thinking you are hiding from him, you have not been hiding at all. Of a truth, trying to stay away from God makes one vulnerable to satanic attacks.
Come to God today, confess your sins, humbly ask for forgiveness and believe God for redemption.
He restores the lost! He heals the repentant of the spiritual infirmity that accompanies sin and, truly,he cares about you!
Don’t try to hide from him, embrace his love!
