You, God, know my folly; my guilt is not hidden from you. Psalm 69:5
Doing something wrong is not uncommon for people. People do things wrong on a regular basis. They break the laws of the land or community all the time.
Sometimes these are major infractions, while often they are minor ones, but either way it is doing something that should not be done. After breaking one of the laws, however, many people are concerned about getting caught by someone.
People driving down the road will often be speeding over the speed limit some. Sometimes quite a bit, other times just a little. When they suddenly see a cop, nearly everyone will hit the brakes and slow down, hoping they don’t get stopped. This even occurs for many who were not speeding.
David had sinned against God and knew it. He knew that God knew what he had done. His guilt was clear to him and to God.
When a person breaks the law of the land it is possible that no one on this earth knows anything about it. They can often get away free from punishment or judgement.
Since people cannot see God directly, they often think that God does not see them doing something wrong. They think they are in the free and clear, because no person saw them.
However, God is everywhere and sees every sin. Not only the physical open sins that people could see, but the sins of the heart and mind.
In the hearts and minds of people, many will hate or commit a sin of thoughts, rather than physically doing anything. They feel as though God cannot see it, but He does. They may be free before man, but they are guilty before God.
The only way to get free of the guilt is to confess it before God and turn from the sin.
God sees you every action that you do. He also knows your every thought and motive. There will be times you will sin against Him both physically and mentally.
Do not try to hide it from God, He already knows what you did. Go to Jesus and repent of that sin. Release it unto Him to be forgiven. God is waiting and ready to forgive every sin you have done, for whatever reason you had done it.
Allow Him to forgive you, rather than hide it and stay condemned.
I pray today that you will know the love of God; that you will know the mercy of God; that you will know God sees all; that you will repent of all sin against God; and that you will seek to live for God.
