One day, in a meeting with a client, she asked me about how to best communicate with her estranged spouse. I instructed her: “Communicate in writing and don’t say anything you wouldn’t want a judge to see.”  Later, in my quiet time, God used my advice to HER—to teach ME—a lesson. Over the course of my life, I’ve said and done many shameful things in secret—because I believed it would find happiness in the darkness. Why? Because I didn’t trust God for my happiness!

I’d forgotten a couple of things: First – Nothing is hidden: “Nothing in all Creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”  (Hebrews  4: 13) Second – I can  trust God for my happiness: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”  (Jeremiah  29:1) 

So, why do I think that things I do in secret will somehow make me happy? Is it because I think I know better than God about what is best for me? Wow—that’s ignorant! If my clients had that kind of attitude I would never take their case! If  God runs the vast span of creation, why wouldn’t I trust Him to run my life? Furthermore, if He gave His only Son for me, how can I doubt that He wants what is best for me?

I can trust God for my happiness; and when I do, I don’t bring shame upon Him or myself.
