The Hidden Will Be Made Known


“An abuser isn't abusive 24/7. They usually demonstrate positive character traits most of the time.  Miya Yamanouchi


PRAY:    Lord, we humans want to keep things secret that are not glorifying to You. But You want NOTHING concealed or hidden. You want to disclose the truth so that it will come into the light and be made known. Please make sure that my every act, every word, every relationship that I have is open and honest, so that nothing will be hidden. Please disclose everything going on in my home or in the homes of the people I love, so that You can come in with Your healing hand. There can't be any secrets in my life or in my home. I need you Lord, to make the truth known in all of my relationships! Amen and Amen

REFLECT:    Have you thought about the power of secrets? Reflect on anything in your life that you haven't told anyone. How about any issues or experiences that you have told one person not to tell anyone else. Think about the things in your home that are concealed, hidden and never talked about. Are those things of the Lord? Are they representing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, or self-control? If not, then those things can't remain secrets any longer.

ACT:    List anything in your life that you consider a secret. Whatever is on that list needs to be disclosed right now. Pray about the right people to tell about it but don't let anything be hidden anymore. Now is the time to reveal the truth of any concealed thoughts, words, situations, or issues that you have been afraid to face. Today is the first day of healing for you and your home!
