Does your darkest secret scare Jesus away?

“… For he knows the secrets of the heart.” (Psalms 44:21 ESV)

We all have those little secrets we hide inside our hearts. Some may be bright and reflect a side of us that remain unseen to the world. Others are locked down with as many locks of guilt and shame we can find.

You may have done your best to hide it from the world and from God, but to Him it remains as visible as can be. The reality thereof is not to make us feel more embarrased or ashamed but to be open before God. He desires for us to share our dirtiest, darkest little secrets and our deepest heart desires. He already knows all of them but therein lies the relationship we get to have with Him.

He wants to help you get rid of the dirt and polish the diamonds hidden inside you.

As you allow Jesus to wash you clean and bring worth your true value, you get to walk in His promise of 1 Corinthians 2:9-10:

… “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. (NKJV)

The Holy Spirit who dwells in us searches our hearts. He speaks to us in a way that brings change. He touches our heartS to beat according to God’s unforced rhythms of grace. He opens our eyes to God’s presence. He opens our ears to hear His voice.

Nothing about you can scare Him away or keep Him from loving you and giving you the best He has for you. The secret lies in this: the darker your secret, the greater will you experience His love for you as you realise the only good there is, in you and in me, is Him.

Join me in prayer:

Lord Jesus, You know me inside out. You know my darkest secrets as they are tucked away in my heart. And You still love me endlessly. You know My deepest desires and You polish me and clean me to perfection so that where I go, I will leave Your footsteps in the heart of people. Jesus, I pray that You will open My eyes to see You in everything. Open my ears so that I will hear Your voice and touch my heart that it will beat according to Your unforced rhythms of grace. I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.
