There are seasons when we feel completely naked before God. It’s when we get stripped to the bare bones from everything that we have taught ourselves and have perfected hiding behind. These seasons are when God requires us to take the MASK OFF and walk in the transparent truth of who we really are on the inside.
Our faith walk is harder at some points than other simply because we naturally want to bury ourselves into things that are comfortable and familiar. We tend to want to hide our blemishes, our imperfections and conceal all that God (who is Light) desires to bring to the surface. His exposure is never for our harm. It is so things that are destructive in our lives and detrimental to others, are unable to persist any longer.
His exposure is intended to lead us to humility before Him and total repentance, which leads to restoration, which leads to victory and becoming an overcomer!
His seasons of revealing is not for abuse and exploitation (which the world’s culture of exposure is all about), but it is to clothe, to cover and to embrace us and cause us to see our dependent state.
