And the LORD said unto Cain, Where [is] Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: [Am] I my brother’s keeper? (Genesis 4:9)
God knows the answer to every question He has ever asked you.
God knew exactly where Abel was when He asked Cain about his brother. God wasn’t asking for information…He was asking so Cain would admit what he had done. But instead of admitting his wrongdoing of murdering his brother; Cain answered the question with another question! How many times do we avoid confronting our own sin by asking more questions? Cain was trying to avoid the confrontation of his wrongdoing by carrying on a dialogue.
VISION: God simply wants you and I to confront ourselves when we have done wrong. Don’t make excuses. Don’t look for a way out. Don’t find someone else to blame for what we have done. Face up to it and confront it. It is only when you confront yourself that you will be able to change yourself. You will never change what you are unwilling to confront. So the question today is this: what behavior in your life do you need to change? Confront it by being honest with yourself today and allow Holy Spirit to give you that power to change that which you have confronted.
Prayer Point: Help me Lord to be very honest to my self and be able to confront any sin that comes my way. Amen
