All-Seeing Eyes

"Wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts..." I Corinthians 4:5

In 2000, Mel Gibson was the lead in the hilarious cinematic release; “What Women Want.” In this movie he played a man that had the unique ability to hear everything that women are thinking. Finally... a man is listening! I have seen this premise on other television shows; when a mind reader is able to hear people’s darkest secrets.

Imagine if this were possible. What if someone really could read your mind? He can and His name is Jesus the Christ. Whether you like it or not, God sees and hears everything. All is naked before His all-seeing eyes. You cannot hide a single thing from the Lord God Almighty—including every one of your thoughts. In fact, your thoughts count even more to the Lord than your actions. Remember that having a hateful heart is the equivalent of being a murderer in God’s eyes. And in Psalm 51 we read that the Lord isn’t pleased by empty sacrifice, He desires a broken and contrite heart. God cares far more about the inside of the glass than the outside. He wants to know what makes you tick.

You can go to church every Sunday for the rest of your life and fake the faith around others—who knows they may even make you an elder or a pastor! Some churchgoers should receive Academy Awards for their ability to act before the rest of the congregation. But this doesn’t trick God. He won’t be fooled or punk’d. He is well aware of what is really going on. He knows your heart and your true intentions. And when the Lord comes, he will turn on the light so that everyone can see exactly what each one of us is really like, deep down in our hearts. Then everyone will know who has been doing the Lord's work and who hasn’t. At that time God will give to each one whatever praise is coming to Him (I Cor 4:5).

Most people act different once they realize that they are on camera. So shape up! More than being filmed, the Lord is watching all of your actions and intentions 24/7. And according to I Corinthians chapter three, you will be judged for these things:

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames. Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?” (I Corinthians 3:11-16)

Lord, forgive me for all of the sins that I have committed both in action and in my mind. Help me to take every thought captive for the obedience of Christ. Help me to have the right motivations and intentions. Jesus, help me to be more like You every day. I love You Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.
