THOSE SECRET SINS
Pastor Isiaka has sent you a message.
Subject: THOSE SECRET SINS!
THOSE SECRET SINS!
THE LITTLE FOXES THAT SPOIL THE VINES!
Memory Verse: "Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance." Psalms 90:8
BIBLE READING: Psalms 19:12-14
Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
Besides expressing faith in God, the righteous is identified by consistent right-standing with God. According to Ezekiel 3:21, the righteous is expected not to live in sin, but to continue to do what glorifies God. Righteousness is not something you engage today and disengage tomorrow like some people think. You do not abstain from sin only when those you respect are around, but also when they are not around. The righteous does not only abstain from public sins but also from secret ones. The challenge of most believers is not how to avoid open sins but how to stay righteous in their thought realm and to keep away from touching the unclean thing when they are all by themselves. That is a major challenge and for the righteous, this is the area he or she devotes more attention and prayer to.
David was one person who had a challenge in this area. Through the knowledge of God's Word, he understood that secret sins, which nobody else is privy to, is fully exposed to God. In Psalms 90:8, he says our sins which were shrouded in secrecy of darkness and ignorance are exposed by the light of His presence. Your secret sins are not covered at all! God knows everything about your secret deeds. The devil or his agents who were present when you indulged in those evil acts also have the records. It is either God exposes your secrets, or the devil does. What you have buried in the earth or locked up in a safe, which you think is safe, is not safe at all. It can be exposed at anytime.
The only secrets that can truly be secrets are the ones you confess to the Lord and hand over to Him. If He covers your faults, nobody can uncover them. When David realised this, he therefore asked God to deliver him from secret sins.
Are you still living in sin secretly? Do you secretly masturbate, lust after same sex or the opposite sex? Do you secretly steal or bribe to influence decisions? Repent today and hand your secrets over to God.
THE FATHER'S BLESSING: "I pray for you today as you read this message that The Lord will open your eyes to identify those little foxes that is spoiling your vines! The Lord will grant you the wisdom and the grace to confess and forsake those secret sins that are breaking the relationship between you and your Lord and Saviour! You will remember that you can hide your sins so that nobody may no, but you cannot hide it from God! You will not call God a liar by denying your secret sins! God in His faithfulness will forgive you your sins! He will cleanse you from all unrighteousness too! The Blood of Jesus His Son will cleanse you from all sins secret and public! The grace to go and sin no more The Lord God will grant you! Sin shall have no dominion over you! You will not deliberately violate God's law and sin! Jesus Christ who is our Advocate will intercede for you with the Father! He will keep you cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations! You will constantly manifest a right standing with God! The Lord will cover with His blood all your sins secret and public! The enemy will no longer take undue advantage of you to disgrace you or rubbish the grace of God in your life! You will make Heaven! You will win many soul for His Kingdom! You will finish well! You will finish gloriously strong! You will reign with your Lord and Master on earth and in Heaven! You will end this year with joy! You will successfully cross over into the New Year! You will enter the New Year rejoicing in the name of Jesus! (Amen)!
KEY POINT FOR TODAY: The secret sins you fail to expose to Him today will be exposed before everyone and then nobody and nothing can cover your shame.
WALKING IN THE PROMISES OF GOD: "1 John 1:8-9 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
