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.
