Plausible Deniability

I woke up very very very (just to emphasize how early was it) early this morning, at around three to fed my baby girl and did not able to sleep again no  matter how I close my eyes, my mind just brought me to places and remind me of people. So instead of meditating of what people did to me I instead open our daily bread booklet and start reading.

This is what I found today and thought I'd share:

"We may successfully fool others, but God knows our hearts." - odb

‎"The Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. -1Samuel 16:7"

Answering a media charges of scandal and impropriety, the guilty politician responded with the plea: " I have no recollection of those events." It was yet another attempt of a public figure  to apply a strategy called "plausible deniability". This is when individuals try to create a personal safety  net for themselves by seeking to convince others that they have no knowledge of the events in question. Someone else get blamed and becomes the scapegoat for the guilty person's wrong.

Sometimes Christians have their own kind of plausible deniability. We claim ignorance of our wrong behavior, rationalize, or blame others---but God knows the truth. The Bible tells us: "Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (1Sam. 16:7)  This is true whether the heart is pure  or it is a corrupt heart  robed in false claims of innocence.  We may fool others who see us only on the outside, but God sees the reality of our hearts---whether good or bad.

It is wise, therefore, to humbly confess our faults to the Lord. he desires that we admit the truths (Ps. 51:6). The only way to escape the sin and restore our fellowship with God is to acknowledge and confess it to Him. --Bill Crowder      

Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!
