“When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.”
Adam and Eve hid themselves from the presence of the Lord after they chose to eat of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Just as the trees of the garden could not hide them for the Lord, we cannot find a place where He cannot see us.
“When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.”
God knows our hearts, but he also knows our flesh.
He knows the difficulty we face when sin abounds around us.
Where have we hid ourselves?
Our flesh wants to run and hide in avoidance, but what is most needful is for us to stand against the wickedness around us.
Instead of trying to hide, may we choose to acknowledge our wrong doing so that our fellowship with the Lord can be restored.
“I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.”
Instead of hiding, seek to hide the Word of God within your heart today.
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
Ezra 1-2 | Titus 2 | Proverbs 21
