Topic:Hiding Our Hurts
July 14, 2018
Read: Hebrews 4:12–13 | Bible in a Year: Psalms 10–12; Acts 19:1–20
he word of God . . . judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
My heart ached at the hidden hurts God came to heal. The writer of Hebrews describes the Word of God as alive and active. Many have understood this “word” to be the Bible, but it’s even more than that. Jesus is the living Word of God. He evaluates our thoughts and attitudes—and loves us still.
Jesus died to give us access to God’s presence, all the time. And while we all know it’s not wise to share everything with everyone, we also know that God intends His church be a place where we can live unapologetically as broken and forgiven followers of Christ. It’s to be a place where we “carry each other’s burdens” (Galatians 6:2).
What are you hiding from others today? And how are you trying to hide from God as well? God sees us through Jesus. And He still loves us. Will we let Him?
Who will you prayerfully consider letting help you carry your burdens?
God sees us with the eyes of a Father.
