Eternal Examination

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 19, 2012

“For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all his paths.” Proverbs 5:21

There is an eternal eye that watches our every move. Almighty God is not exhausted from examination, because He knows we need the accountability of His watchful eye. We do better when we know Deity is watching. This is why you train your children to be accountable to God, so when they move out and move on, they fear God, and they are motivated to love and obey Him. You can’t follow your teenagers and young adult children around but the Lord does.

This is how the Holy Spirit is able to check a woman’s conscience, or prick a man’s pride. Every good or bad deed is in full view of your Heavenly Father for your benefit. He sees what a situation will bring, and seeks to guide you in the right direction. This is why prayer is imperative to gain God’s perspective. An eternally examined life is a gateway to knowing God. Live your life ever mindful you are under your Master’s microscope of concern, and you are freed by faith in Him.

“For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14).

God’s accountability is not bondage, but freedom. You live within God’s guidelines, but with tremendous freedom and creativity on the playing field of Providence. It’s those who stray into sin who are snared by its seduction. There are no secrets with your Savior.  Every action will be weighed and brought into judgment.

Therefore, come clean with Christ in confession, and claim a clear conscious. Do not let pride keep you from pronouncing your blind spots to friends who will lovingly yet boldly bring them to your attention. There is no such thing as an unexamined life, as the Lord is looking. Behave in a way that makes Him smile, as He gazes on your life with humble holiness. Indeed, the Lord looks on for your blessing and benefit.

“And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 4:13, NASB

Prayer: Which of my blind spots do I need to invite a friend to ask me about with regularity?

    Great Wisdom! Thanks! We are a generation leaning into isolating ourselves from each other; sometimes I can see the enemy’s hand in that because isolation is a roadblock to confession… culturally so! In a culture where we do what we want, when we want, there is little thoughts of this wisdom, that God see’s all, that we will answer to all. Hmmmmmmmmmm Lord change us…. culturally so and create in us Kingdom hearts founded on this wisdom hunter’s sharing of truth, lighten up the blind spots in our hearts with Your Glory Glow! Infinitely So… AWE-GOD!

  7. I’m the manager of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and am seeking to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain share some guidance ! I thought that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody could suggest a dependable site where I can get Vape Shop Business Data I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
