For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known or come to light
There are a great deal of people who believe that things kept in secret will never come out. There are a lot of people who truly believe that what someone doesn’t know won’t hurt them. I have news for those people. Secrets do come out, and what a person doesn’t know does hurt. It may not hurt them at that very moment, because they are thinking that nothing is going on and everything is alright. A lot of people do things that they shouldn’t do just for the thrill. You know it’s wrong to commit adultery, yet the thrill of doing it gives you a rush. It’s the fact of doing something in secret gives you a false sense of security. You know it’s wrong to lie, yet the fact that you think no one will ever question it provokes you to do it. You feel if you sit down and think a of a good lie, this will somehow bide you some time. Everything secret is a thrill ride, until it all come to light. Your spouse is hurt that you would betray him/her and go outside of your marriage. They begin to question what they did wrong that prompted you to go outside your marriage to seek something from someone else. When all the lies unfold, the web untangles. The questions begin to come. Believing that if you cover your tracks carefully, you can’t possibly get caught. Wrong! Whether you know it or not, there is always someone watching. Doing wrong in the presence of the Lord will warrant things to happen. Sometimes a warning sign before destruction, or to bring forth the life you tried so desperately to conceal. Living your life in secret, causes too much stress on the body. You are always anxious. Looking over your shoulder every where you go. Your adrenaline pumps and your heart starts to race if you even feel you’ve gotten caught. You start to sweat profusely when being questioned. You may even get mad or angry. Frustrated at the life you are living openly and the life you have to keep a secret. You loose sleep at night as your mind is always wondering. Your conscious speaks to you on your down time, so you never really have down time. You isolate yourself from friends, because you don’t want them snooping around or asking questions. You may even turn your back on family as they try to pry into your sudden change of actions. All of these are emotions that your body feels when trying to live in the dark. This what your spouse, or family may feel. All of these things are a domino effect. Ask yourself, is it worth it? Is it worth me risking my health, peace of mind, and sanity to fulfill a fantasy? Is it worth to lie, just to bide time? Is it worth it?
So if you ever run into someone who you know is not living right or being dishonest, you tell them just remember whatever is done in the dark, will manifest and be brought to light. This a powerful scripture I live by every day.
