The Children of Israel Did Secretly

Peace and blessings – in First Kings chapter 17, there is a verse that says:

And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the Lord their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

In fact, this entire chapter was rather graphic in its nature, but this one tiny verse caught my attention. I was compelled to share some thoughts on it. Once again, it reads that the children of Israel did secretly those things that WERE NOT right with the Lord their God.

We are Habitual Creatures

It made me ask myself; what secret things am I doing against the Lord my God that are not right towards Him. In addition what things towards my fellow brothers and sisters (His children) aren’t right? We are creatures of habits.

The reason why people say things like, “I’m too old to change,” or someone is stuck in their ways. It is because they literally are.

We like comfort and what is more comforting than to do things the same way we know how. If you grew up baptists, you will tend to want to remain a baptist no matter what. I bring the habits up because we all could be doing things secretly out of habit, things which do not please God.

Hiding from God?

The children of Israel did secretly things that were not right. Did they do it secretly because they actually thought they could hide from God? Probably not! It was done secretly to hide from their neighbors and from themselves also.

Therefore we must become more aware of the things we do daily and be sure they are not against the Lord our God.

Peace and blessings to you in Jesus name
