DayBreaks for 10/05/12 – Buried In Plain Sight

Sometimes no one ever really knows what lurks beneath until things get a good shake. An April earthquake in the region of the Solomon Islands shook loose a World War II torpedo boat which had rested on the ocean floor for over 60 years. The boat’s hull was intact—explosives and all. A bomb unit was deployed to detonate the torpedoes safely.

Experts believe the PT boat is just one of many pieces of military wreckage that pepper the coastline of the islands. This piece is particularly fascinating in that it’s the same variety of military craft U.S. President John F. Kennedy commanded.

Jay Waura of the National Disaster Management Office said, “We were amazed by this finding, as previously this wreckage had long been sitting under the sea and rusting in peace without anyone knowing about it.”

Luke 8:17 – For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

There is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed.  We like to believe in exceptions – and in particular that WE are the exception to the rule.  But Jesus is clear: “There is NOTHING hidden that will not be disclosed…”

Whatever things we are trying to hide from the sight of the Lord are clearly visible to Him now…and they will be made visible to all one day.  I don’t like that.  If you don’t like it either, then we should change how we live.

PRAYER: Holy Spirit, I pray that your Presence will continually remind us that all shall one day be revealed!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
