You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’ Isaiah 47:10
God had chosen to use Babylon to punish the Israelites for their rebellion against Him. In the process of doing that, Babylon became very proud and felt that they were the top authority and in complete control. They went further in the punishment of the Israelites than God had wanted them to do. Now God was calling them into account for their actions.
The world as a whole lives in a way that does not believe in God in any way. They live in sin because that is all that they know and they do not believe that God exists. The person who lives this way is living the only way that they know how to live.
One of the sad things is that many believers live in very much the same way. Individuals have personal sins in their lives that they commit in their house behind closed doors when they are alone. They feel as if no one is around and that no one can see them.
Buying into the world’s ways of doing things happens by many believers. They forget that God is right there at all times. God can see behind closed doors and into the mind of every person.
You may have some of these challenges in your own life. It may be direct actions or it may just be in your thoughts, either way it is sin that you are holding onto in your life. You may try to justify that sin and feel as though no one sees it. However, remember that God is there and sees and knows all.
Do not allow the wisdom and knowledge of this world or your own wisdom and knowledge to fool you into thinking that God does not see or know what is going on. Give those sins and habits to God and allow Him to crucify them. Allow God to remove all sin from your life.
Always keep in the front of your mind that you are never alone and that God sees and knows all. Allow Him to create in you a new heart and mind. You are a new creation. Do not live in the old sinful ways.
I pray today that you will know God’s presence in your life; that you will give all sinful habits to God; that you will seek God’s strength to turn from all sin; and that you will listen to the Holy Spirit’s guidance to you.
