Is Anything Not Hidden Today?

I read over the weekend that there are some 245 million surveillance cameras installed worldwide and the number is growing larger each year. In addition, multiplied millions of people with smartphones capture daily images ranging from birthday parties to bank robberies Whether we approve or disapprove of this reduced privacy, we live in a global, cameras-everywhere society.

If we look at the New Testament book of Hebrews it states that in our relationship with God, we experience a far greater level of exposure and accountability than anything surveillance cameras may see. His word , like a sharp, two-edged sword, penetrates to the deepest level of our being where it "judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's view. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give an account" ( Hebrews 4:12-13).

Because Jesus our Savior experienced our weaknesses and temptations but did not sin, we can "approach God"s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" (Hebrews 4:15-16). We really do not need to fear Him but can be assured we will find grace when we come to Him. Nothing is hidden from God's sight. Nothing is greater than God's love. Nothing is stronger than God's mercy and grace. Nothing is too hard for God's power. No part of our lives is out of sight of God's grace and power.
