The Healing Of Naaman

Jeremiah 23:24

“Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord.

“Do I not fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.

I grew up near Murray, Kentucky. Murray was famous for the auto cleanup/rebuild shops there. There were many shops where wrecked and used cars were bought at auction, repaired, painted and resold. Many of the cars came from the northern United States with salt damage that caused rust. The bad places were removed and new metal soldered in or covered over with bondo. There were also people who could roll the odometer readings back. So, an automobile that looked clean, new and shiny may be hiding major damage that would reappear in a few months. My Dad told me when I was looking for my first car, “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.” You have to look at the seams for paint marks, look under the vehicle for rust damage and check the car for unusual wear in not so obvious places - have an expert to check it out.

Well, nothing can be kept secret from God. We may be able to fool some of the people some of the time but we can never fool God. All will be revealed eventually. God sees all and knows all. We need to check our heart and our priorities the way God checks and sees us. Then live so that others may see Jesus in us.
