Now You See Me (Not the Movie)

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.” Hebrews 4:13

“No one is going to know.”

“No one is watching.”

When Clark has this ability, he first learns he can peer through walls and people. As the scene demonstrates, he peers through the girl’s locker room to see Lana Lang (almost) naked. He smiles. 

Clark Kent/Superman’s X-ray vision allows him to peek through otherwise nontransparent objects and to see through human bodies–to the point he can see their skeletal composition! He uses this to locate hidden objects and people. In the above scene, Clark is discovering this ability and is unable to control it-at first. With practice and concentration, he is able to harness this power.

God is the same way.

Nothing we do on Earth is ever hidden from God. He sees everything and all we do in secret. When we think no one is watching, God knows about it. When we say something, He hears it. It’s silly to think that God is not watching our every move or listening to every word we utter, considering Heaven is His throne and the Earth is His footstool (Isaiah 66:1). What we do and say in private, God sees and hears it. The whole world is a window through which God sees and hears everything. When we die, God will judge us for the good and bad we have done in our earthly bodies (2 Corinthians 5:10).

God sees us at our best and worst. He knows our true motives and hidden desires. It’s easy to mislead people into believing we are dong something for a noble or selfless cause (or say things we want them to believe), but God knows our true intentions for Proverbs 16:2 states, “People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.”

I’ve done and said things that were unacceptable to God–everyone has. I said offensive words and committed fax paus. I sought forgiveness afterward. Our words and actions are recorded in God’s “book”–his database of everything we have done, said, and thought about doing and saying, which God shows to Bruce Nolan in the 2003 film Bruce Almighty.

This scene is a prime example of God’s omniscience. Wait until you watch the ending–it’s a surprise!

“The Lord’s eyes watch over every person’s path, observing all their ways.” Proverbs 5:21
