Isaiah 29:15-16 (NLT)
15 What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!” 16 How foolish can you be? He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay! Should the created thing say of the one who made it, “He didn’t make me”? Does a jar ever say, “The potter who made me is stupid”?

These verses from Isaiah show the folly in man’s thoughts. He believes since he can potentially hide his sins from man by performing the actions in the dark; God can’t see what is taking place. Isaiah says God is the potter, the creator, the one who formed us and yet we want to believe we are smarted than Him.

In Matthew 6:33 Jesus said, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” In other words our thoughts are to be placed on God first and then ourselves. God is our source of wisdom. He knows us intimately down to the last hair on our head. Jesus even reminds us in Matthew 10:30, “And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” So God knows us at every level of our life; from our creation, to who we are and what we are at this very moment. Yet many want to pretend God does not know they exist or that He is blind to their actions. They discount the role God has had all throughout their lives and they give Him no credit for being their creator. They try to hide their actions of sin thinking surely God won’t know. Yet our Lord sees everything. While we try to discount His presence He is pursuing us, calling us to be close to Him. Praise God that He loves us so dearly He is always extending His mercy and grace.
