All of us have our own secrets. They might be little things, like a guilty pleasure we don’t want anyone to know about. Or they might be bigger things, like something from our past that we’re ashamed of. Whatever they may be, it can be quite burdensome trying so hard to keep something hidden. A secret weighs down on the heart and it takes great mental toll just to make sure no one ever finds out about it.
We tend to keep certain things to ourselves because of fear or shame. Even if we have done something we should be embarrassed of, it’s important to remember that we are not perfect beings. We all make mistakes and sometimes it may be necessary to keep certain secrets in order to protect ourselves or those around us. Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine if keeping a secret is right or wrong, but ultimately, it’s up to each person to decide what they feel is best for them when confronted with this dilemma.
However, there’s someone who can see through the acts and lies. Unlike people, God knows everything and sees everything, so He can’t be fooled. He’s omniscient and omnipresent, all-knowing and always present. So why bother keeping secrets from Him when He already knows? Keeping secrets could be viewed as dishonesty in God’s eyes, something which he has no tolerance for. Of course, this doesn’t mean we should never keep secrets. We just need to be transparent and open up to Him regardless of our concerns. By being honest with the Lord and trusting Him with our thoughts and feelings, we are putting faith in Him to help us through difficult times. If you have difficulty confiding with the Lord, let the bible advise you.
