“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.” (Hebrews 4:13)
We were on the back porch. A holiday morning, not much stirring yet. I was slowly waking, cradling a steaming mug of coffee, when my husband asked, “Do you see what’s in the tree?”
I strained to look, and all I saw was healthy, green palm fronds. Perfectly camouflaged, the iguana lay draped over a top branch. I zoomed in with my camera lens, and was once-again amazed at the mimic that nature comes up with.
“He’s so concealed by his coloring and marks,” I thought. “It keeps him hidden in his surroundings.”
Sometimes I cover things up, put a smokescreen over them. But nothing in all of this world, including my heart, is hidden from God. Our very thoughts are known to Him, and they’re not a surprise. He doesn’t say, “Hmmm, imagine that, what she’s thinking!”….or, “Gee, look what he just did!” No news to the Lord, who knew us before we were even born (Psalm 139).
And, He loves us anyway. You may have heard this, and it is true: there is nothing you could ever do that would make God love you more, and there is nothing you could ever do that would make God love you less. He loves you. Period. Forever. Unconditionally. It’s who He is.
That is definitely good news.
