You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
21 For his eyes [`ayin] are upon the
ways [derek] of man ['iysh], and he seeth [ra'ah] all
his goings [tsa`ad].
22 There is no darkness [choshek], nor shadow of death [tsalmaveth], where the workers [pa`al]
of iniquity ['aven] may hide [cathar] themselves.
23 For he will not lay [suwm] upon man ['iysh] more than
right; that he should enter [halak] into
judgment [mishpat] with God ['el]. KJV-Interlinear
21 'For His eyes are upon the
ways of a man, And He sees all his steps. 22 'There is no darkness or deep shadow Where
the workers of iniquity may hide themselves. 23 'For He does not need to consider a man
further, That he should go before God in judgment. NASB
God knows all of your thoughts, motivations, desires,
actions, and so forth. There is nothing
which can be hidden or concealed from God.
In eternity past, God issued the Divine Decrees. After careful thought, evaluation and
consideration, God considered all possible scenarios for human history. He considered every possibility for your life
by placement in every possible era of history, complete with every possible set
of circumstances and, well, here you are.
This is your best situation for living your life,
which will produce the best possible outcome for you, both now and in
eternity. It is you who has to get with
a consistent spiritual program so as to realize that best outcome which God has
prepared for you.
Most folks unfortunately, try to do better than
God. They come up with their own ideas. They, those who have lived but a few years or
decades, confined to this world, and probably to a small geographical region at
that, and yet they imagine that they know more than God.
And there are those who believe that they can hide
their thoughts, their actions, their most secret desires from the public as
well as from God. Some hide in the
darkness of the shadows, many hide in the darkness of their indifference, many
hide in the darkness of their intellect.
But God is never fooled, nor misled.
Before you were born, God knew your entire life. God knows all of the possible scenarios you
might follow, and He knows the actual path you will pursue in life. He has known since eternity past. In fact, God has gone so far as to make
provision for your life, every aspect of your life, every moment of your life,
until the very moment of your death.
God does not need to see your actions in order to know
you. God does not need to read your thoughts in order to know your thoughts. God
has known you for a very long time. God
has known your entire life for a very long time.
It is you who has to discover yourself, not God. It is you who has to conform to Gods
standards, not God to you.
Many newborn babe's die without even knowing a
life. But God has seen their life as
though they had lived for centuries. God
has access to many more facts than we have.
God knows what He is doing.
God has your best interest in mind, the real question
is, do you even know what your own best interest is?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
