No Secret Sins by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/27/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: “No one will ever know.” Have you ever been tempted to think that you can keep sin secret? One result of the computer age is that we think it’s easy to keep our sin quiet, whether it means looking at pornography, sharing intimate things with a stranger, or pirating other people’s property.

But there’s really no such thing as private sin. The Old Testament calls God El Roi—The God Who Sees. Proverbs 15:3 tells us “the eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.”

Are you indulging in any “secret sins”? Are you pure in your private moments? We are protected from sin by the fear of the Lord—that constant, conscious sense that God is there and is watching.

Ask God to help you say “no” to secret sin. And then obey Him, knowing that El Roi—The God Who Sees—also sees your faithfulness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
