The news this week is shocking us by revealing that every phone call we make and every email we send is recorded and stored. The whole idea seems to not be possible in a country where personal freedom and privacy are valued.
Personally, I don’t know if I believe it. With my limited grasp of what technology can do I can’t imagine finding enough time or space to keep this kind of record on everybody. Then I wondered if anyone would be interested in the details of my life. As I reflect, I remember some things that I really don’t want to be a part of a public record. Things that have been forgiven but, with the wisdom of a rear view mirror, I would not do them at all.
But then, comes the comfort that God already knows.
When he views my life, there will be no surprises. There will be nothing that He has not already encountered and found the blood of Jesus to be powerful enough to wash it away and leave me white as snow.
It is a mystery too wonderful to understand. I stand amazed in the Presence. I rest in the peace of knowing that my debts have been paid in full.
May God give wisdom to our national leaders as they work to protect us.
May those who live in fear know God’s grace.
