Hide and Seek

God, are you avoiding me? Where are you when I need you? (Ps. 10:1, THE MESSAGE)

Ever feel like David did there in Psalms? Like God took a hike and isn’t chilling with you anymore? David isn’t alone in his feelings; Moses, Job, Jeremiah, Jonah, and even Jesus felt this way at one point or another.

[photopress:hidinghorse.jpg,full,alignright]I think God likes to play hide and seek sometimes. Not like my brother used to play hide and seek; where I would count and he’d lock himself in the room with the atari and I spent hours searching for him. (Yea, I still haven’t overcome the bitterness of being they youngest child).

I think God likes to play hide and seek like my Dad used to play hide and seek with me when I was little. I’d count to 10, and he’d go and hide behind an itty bitty tree, then I’d find him. I’d count to 10, he’d hide half-way under the kitchen table, I’d find him. Sure he made it really easy, but the point was that I had to go find him.

Hurry up and count to 10.

(Hosea 6:3)

  1. When you were playing hide and seek with your dad, did you laugh with delight at locating him? Was it fun to find him the last time any more than it was the first time?
    God wants us to delight and enjoy and have fun in discovering Him and in finding out more about Him. We are God’s children and He enjoys what we enjoy just to be with us. How much time do we return that and enjoy what God enjoys?

    Bless Him by counting to 10.

  2. Isn’t it amazing that it’s that simple. There are times that when you are done counting to 10 that as soon as you open your eyes and turn around he is right behind you with arms open wide. This sound like a great theme for a revival. It’s sad to think of how many people won’t even take the time at least once a day to play a little hide and seek
