Evidence of Faith
“For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:14 (NIV)
Take heart that the judgment overlooks nothing in our lives, including things in secret that tell of our faithfulness to God. God knows the quiet little acts of kindness that you might think to be insignificant, yet helpful to others. It also means God knows the behind the scenes scheming and harm perpetrated by the wicked upon the innocent.
The wicked may not want to know that that their secret sins and unknown evil deeds will be exposed, but they can seek forgiveness before than. Thankfully, God’s verdicts are always just and for us it is evidence that we have sought forgiveness in Jesus as our Savior.
Let’s pray today that we may be reminded that our Lord sees and knows our heart.
