Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.       Amos 3:7

Christians spend much time talking about “seeking God’s will,” as though it were hidden and difficult to find. God does not hide His will. His will is not difficult to discover. We do not have to plead with God to reveal His will to us. He is more eager to reveal His will than we are willing to receive it. We sometimes ask God to do things He has already done!

The people in Amos’s day became disoriented to God and to His desires. God had revealed His will; the problem was that they had not recognized it or obeyed it. Amos declared that God does nothing in the affairs of humanity without seeking one of His servants to whom He will reveal His activity. Tragically, there are times when no one is walking closely enough with Him to be receptive to His word (Isa. 59:16; 63:5; Ezek. 22:30-31).

Jesus walked so intimately with His Father that He was always aware of what the Father was doing around Him (John 5:19-20). Jesus said that if our eyes are pure, they will see God and recognize His activity (Matt. 6:22). If we are not seeing God’s activity, the problem is not a lack of revelation. The problem is that our sin prevents us from noticing it.

When God is working in your child’s life or when He is convicting your coworker, He may reveal His activity to you. His revelation is His invitation for you to join Him in His redemptive work. Be alert to God’s activity around you. He will reveal His activity to His servants. If your spiritual eyes are pure, you will be overwhelmed by all that you see God doing around you!

      Hi Jemimah,
      Good for you for wanting to root out any sin in your life! The key is listening to God and asking Him to show you what is displeasing to Him. Read Psalm 139:23-24 slowly and carefully, and then DO what it says! Take time to sit still before God and His word and ask Him to bring to your attention anything in your life, actions, words, attitudes etc. that are displeasing. If you are married, maybe ask your spouse if there is anything in your life that has been unkind or harmful. If you are serious about rooting out such things, God will make you aware of them!
