“You Can’t Fool God.”

God will not be fooled

1Kings 14 The gecko in the garden tries to fool by staying still and changing his coat to match the plant.  He thinks you can’t see them, just like King Jeroboam thought he could fool the prophet Ahijah.  Jeroboam sent his wife to Ahijah disguised as an ordinary woman when the little prince was very ill.  What Jeroboam didn’t know was that although the old prophet was now blind, God would be Ahijah’s eyes.

Is.  46:9 says, “Truly, I am God, I have no peer; I am God, and there is none like me.”

Our disguises do not fool God.  Even blindness cannot fool God.  We may change our clothes and put on a new face, but God sees us as we are.  God sees our heart.  He sees our motives.  He sees the situation.

Do you attempt to conceal yourself out of shame, thinking the world doesn’t know you as a believer?  Jesus reminded us: “For whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” [Luke9]

Beloved—God will reveal who you are even if you are trying to hide. Don’t be like Jeroboam because God will reveal who you are because you can’t fool God.
