Hide and Seek

  • You shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 WEB

    Most all of us have played the game of 'Hide and Seek' before. As one person counts down, the others go and hide as best they can. When the countdown is complete, the seeker then searches for the others.

    When I became an adult and began playing it with the children, I would hide and the kids would search and search until they found me. If I hid in too good of a spot, I would have to give them hints, or make some noise so they could find me. If they stopped looking, well it just kind of spoiled the game. You didn't want to make it too difficult for them, but it needed to be challenging according to their ability.

    Our heavenly Father hides from us, and it is up to us to seek Him out. He drops little hints here and there, and we most always find Him right when we are about to give up the search. Don't give up! Seek Him out. He will often be found in the places you least expect.

    Jesus even hid His teachings in parables. He said to them, 'To you is given the mystery of the Kingdom of God, but to those who are outside, all things are done in parables, that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand' (Mark 4:10).

    Insincere people could listen to the teachings of Jesus all day and not comprehend them, while His disciples could. It was an encoded message, and knowing Him was the key to understanding it. We can read a passage from the Bible ten times and feel that it makes no sense, but then a quickening from the Holy Spirit comes, and suddenly we understand it.

    He conceals it, we seek it for it, and He reveals it. Jesus told us: 'I tell you, keep asking, and it will be given you. Keep seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened' (Luke 11:9).

    Keep on seeking, for you are closer than you were before. Keep on asking, for you are about to receive, what He has in store. Keep on knocking, for He's on the way to the door.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for giving me hope and I pray that You build my faith. Help me see the big picture and where I fit into this puzzle. Walk with me and talk with me today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him'a threefold cord is not quickly broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:12). If you are in need of prayer, we are here for you! All prayer requests made on our Prayer Network are private: RHM Prayer Network

When we are weak, and tired we are more prone to sin. Dear Lord, please help  us stay refreshed so that we may battle with a prepared heart.
