But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. —Romans 13:14

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. —Romans 14:8

Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God; for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. —Romans 14:10-12

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. —Romans 14:17

O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O LORD, you know it altogether… . Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? —Psalm 139:1-4,7

            There is nowhere to hide from God and nothing can be kept from Him knowing. — “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).  He is: all-powerful, Sovereign, Merciful, Love, merciful, Holy, and Just.  There none like Him!

            We are to make no provision for the flesh to gratify it lustful desires.  We belong to the lord whether we live or die… we are His!  Living for our Lord does not include focusing on the temporary, but to focus on the kingdom of God which includes “righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”  So, are we living rightly before Him?  Are we experiencing the peace that only comes from knowing and serving Him?  Do we have the joy that only His Holy Spirit can give?

            He knows all about me and you and everybody— where we are located, what we are thinking and our actions.  Nothing or nobody escapes His notice anywhere at any time.  There is no place anyone can hide from Him at any time.  Nobody, absolutely nobody, is getting away with anything.  The time is coming when all will give account to Him!  He will make all things right…  And I am so comforted to know this, Dear Father.  So may I faithfully live for You, trusting Your plans and purposes even when I do not understand.  May this be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9EI9pyuQ8E
