While cleaning my bathroom this morning, I went to clean the baseboards because they were screaming at me – “Don’t forget us!” As I was cleaning the one by the sink, I heard God say get the one under the sink, the one no one can see. I asked Him why it was important and heard that although others can’t see it, you know its there and that its dirty.
I automatically began to think of areas in my life that only God and I know about that need to be cleaned up. Those non-public areas – those hidden ones. Often, we think we are getting away with our “dirt” because no one can see it. But the truth is the dirt is there, whether it’s exposed to the light and natural eye or not.
Here’s a short blog to remind us to clean out these areas. Clean out the areas that we think we have hidden away. The areas where we think no one knows that the dirt is there. Guess what, eventually, they will be exposed. Eventually, everything in the dark comes to the light.
Luke 12:2-3 reads “2 Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 3 Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops” (ESV). Get rid of the things you have hidden in the dark that are not of God. God already knows what you have done and/or said. While you think that you are covering it up, truthfully, people already see it. “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” (Luke 6:45 NIV)
Be A Blessing and Not Just Blessed
