Hebrews 4:13 Being Accountable

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to who we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13

People who acknowledge that there is a God, are also usually willing to acknowledge that He is everywhere. They are even willing to acknowledge that God knows everything, in word. However, most do not live with that truth in their lives.

Many believers try to live their lives with secret sins. Behind closed doors they live a different life. Language is used and actions are done that they would not want their pastor or fellow believers to know about. These are just the outward actions that can be seen. There are also the inner thoughts that go on also. As they do these things they often think that it is also hidden from God.

All over the world people love to have their own freedom. They want to be able to do what they want, when they want and how they want, with no one to tell them differently. They do not want to be accountable to anyone. Yet, at the same time they will hold another person accountable for his words or actions.

Every person will be held accountable for his words and actions by God. God sees everything, even the little things done in secret in your closed room or in your mind. There is nothing that God does not know or see.

It may seem at the moment that you are getting away with something, but God is still watching. Even when you think you are alone, you are not, God is still present with you. There will come a day when you must give an account to Him for every word, action and thought you did.

Since this is the case, you must strive to live your life for God all the time. Be willing to be accountable to God and to others. Watch what you do, say or think.

Live your life in such a way that you will not be embarrassed knowing that God is watching you. Keep it in your mind that God is always right there beside you.

I pray today that God will strengthen you to live for Him; that you will know that God is watching your every move; that you will be willing to give an account to God for all you do; and that everything you do, say or think will bring honor to Jesus.
