Show Your True Character
”Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?”
This is a scripture by David telling us that no one can hide from the watchful eyes of God. When I see the character of so many people that put on a good face in public, I think about what they are really like in their private lives. I believe that our true character is shown when no one is looking. God knows what we are like in public and also when we are alone, as there is no hiding our true character from God. Our true character is found not in our words, not in our outward appearance to others but is found in the way we live. When we put on a show to impress others and are different in our hearts, and in our private life we are deceiving others and also deceiving ourselves. God knows and sees us at all times, as we cannot flee from His presence. We need our words, our actions and also our heart to be pleasing to God at all times. So many people have allowed themselves and their character to diminish to the point that they only want to please themselves and have no thought of pleasing God. They get caught up in “wanting to do what they want to do,” instead of doing what God tells them to do. If your thoughts, words and actions are things that you feel guilty about, and would not be pleasing to God, you are probably headed down the wrong path. I would encourage each of you to think about yourself, and consider if you would be comfortable with your words, your thoughts and your actions if God was beside you. If there is any doubt in your mind you are probably walking in secret sin, but God knows all about you, and these hidden secrets. There is no escaping His watchful eye. It is not too late to change, and become a person of true character, one who is not ashamed in front of men and also in the presence of God.
