That problem that you are sure if others knew about it they'd reject you?
Or that sin?
Or that struggle?
Inside you hide.
You hide from God.
You hide from yourself.
You hide from the world that part that you are so ashamed of.
You feel helpless.
And everything inside you says to keep hiding.
Run to the Light!
Run, run, run and let God's Light shine on it.
When that happens He can help you with it. His light will show you that the monster isn't a monster. It's just some dude in a stupid costume!
Don't be afraid of that monster anymore.
God is bigger than every single monster, even ones we created ourselves!
Let's say you knew of a patch of quick sand on your land. You have told and told your kids to stay away from it.
But they are kids. They are curious. They want to see how fast sticks sink. They want to see the quick sand in action.
And let's say they just get too close and fall in (even though you told them to stay away).
Would you stand on the side and yell as they go under, "I told you to stay away from this quick sand. I told you it would catch you. I told you. I told you. I told you. Now, suffer the consequences."
Of course not!
You'd get a big branch and tell your child to reach for it and then you'd pull her out. You wouldn't even stop to consider to yourself, "I told her not to do this."
No -- you would save her life because you love her so much.
God would do the same and more!
"Therefore there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1
Turn and Run to the Light! Right now!
