Moment of Truth

Moment of Truth

We often cling to the illusion of safety in our secrets, only to be jolted when someone reveals knowledge that was meant to remain hidden. The breach of our clandestine world leaves us bewildered, pondering how our well-kept secrets were laid bare.

“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.” – Deuteronomy 29:29

The Lord seeks those who are sincere in their dealings with Him and themselves. He desires individuals who will not deceive themselves but can courageously step out of their protective shells, acknowledging their transgressions and seeking divine mercy.

Consider the account of David in 2 Samuel 12:1-13, where he grappled with the consequences of his adultery and murder. In today’s context, he might have faced a death sentence. Despite his grave sins, God extended His mercy to David, though it came at a cost.

Secrets are those hidden fragments of our lives that we desperately want to shield from the prying eyes of the world. They thrive in the shadowy corners of our existence.

Truth, on the other hand, is the unvarnished reality—a faithful account of events, situations, and individuals. Secrets are the antithesis of truth, kept hidden or shared confidentially among a select few. Just as David had chosen his sins but not their consequences, every secret and unconfessed sin harbors a perilous, self-destructive element. Expose and confess these secrets to God, and their grip on you will be dismantled.

The story of the prodigal son provides insight into our own imperfections. We are often swift to criticize the young man in the parable, but we too bear the guilt of similar actions. How? By seeking God’s permissive will, seizing opportunities that do not rightfully belong to us, denying others their due blessings, scheming and manipulating circumstances, or cultivating relationships based on deceit.

It is imperative that we take an introspective look at our hearts and lives, heeding the guidance of the Holy Spirit. As the apostle Paul advises in Philippians 4:8, let us fix our thoughts on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy.
