Caught in the Act: God sees all

Who Love Birthday cake?
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and lay bare before the eyes of Him who we must give account.  Hebrews 4:13

God sees all
There is no hiding from God. Everything is in plain sight. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord know it completely Psalm 139:4. He knows when we slumber, rise, and sit. God is watching constantly. If man could fathom the thought that God is capable of doing all these things it should keep man from sin and mistake? But for some reason people trick themselves in believing they cannot be caught in the act.

February and birthday cakes
When I was child, February was love supreme. I counted the days leading up to that majestic moment. Not because of Valentine’s Day – it was my birthday month! It was not gifts or parties that brought excitement but moist, tasty, buttery, creamy birthday cake – a decadent display of eatable art. There was no need for party favors, traditional singing or blowing out candles I wanted to cut the cake. 
It's My Party
One year my antsy cake fixation got the best of me. Despite many warnings of “don’t touch the cake” I concocted a plain to steal a taste of “my” birthday cake!  A few quick swipes of icing led to gouging two fingers deep into the vanilla cake. My craving was satisfied. The evidence was covered with more icing. Since mom did not see me everything was all right. But I soon realized mothers – just like God can see all.

No hiding from God
David reminds us there is no place to hide from God.  Where can I go from your Spirit where can I flee from your presence? Psalm 139:7 Yet society justifies their actions in a childlike manner based on the fact they were not caught in the act. Wake up!  Do you not realize God never sleeps – He sees all and knows all?   

Fooling God
God knows everything about us – mind, heart, and soul.  He knows our personalities, concealed fantasies, and hidden motives. As the saying goes – “you can fool some of the people some of the time” but no one can pull the wool over God’s eyes. His word is more than letters on a page; they live. For the unbelievers who doubt they can never get caught, God’s word reminds us that they are alive and active. It is sharper than any double-edged sword; it penetrates even to dividing souls and spirit. It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart Hebrews 4:12.
Just as I learned there was no great escape from mom’s wrath there is no escaping God. How good and sweet it would be if everyone were free of sin based on the mere fact that every word, action and deed is witnessed by God. Lord help your children to do nothing which would cause them to hide from you.
