Daily SOAP: Naked and Exposed Before God

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Hebrews 4.

Scripture

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable.” –Hebrews 4:13

Observation

God sees everything and everyone. We can’t hide from Him. Using words like “naked” and “exposed” make us so vulnerable, but that is what the Judgment will be like. We will have nowhere to hide, and we will be all alone when we stand before Him on that Day to give an account for our lives.

Application

God sees me always. He sees everything I do in public and in private. He even sees deep into my heart. Realizing this is such a motivation to holy living. I truly believe it impossible to sin if I thought God was actually there and that whenever we sin, we are temporarily being an atheist. I must also help others realize that God is always there and always watching.

Prayer

Father, it is a fearful thing to realize my entire life is naked and exposed before You. But because of Jesus’ sacrifice, this is now a place of peace and security for me. Help me to daily live in light of Your presence and help others to do so as well. This is reality!

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
