Have you ever played hide-n-seek with little kids? They hide in places where they can’t see you and therefore, believe you can’t see them! It’s really sweet watching them feel like they are completely hidden because you are out of their sight. But, obviously, in reality we see everything they are doing.
As adults we tend to do the same thing. We think that God can’t see the things we do when no one else can. We think because we are in the dark or alone that we are the only one who can see what we do. For example, you ask friends to hold you accountable to not eat sweets. And when you are home by yourself, you eat 3 cookies and don’t tell anyone that you did it. Your friend didn’t see you, and you were all alone so no one really knows that you ate the 3 cookies. But God knows.
People may think that God can’t see them and doesn’t know what they do because they can’t see HIM! But think about the wind as an example. We can’t see the wind. But we can see what the wind does and we can feel the wind. Therefore, we believe in the wind.
Look around…………..we can’t see God. But we can see all the things He does. We can feel the Holy Spirit. We believe He is there even though we can’t see Him.
So the next time you play hide-n-seek with God, remember that just because you can’t see Him, doesn’t mean He doesn’t see You. Don’t hide from Him……….Embrace Him………….Look for Him. Don’t focus on what you see, but rather on what you can’t see.
2 Corinthians 4:18 – So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
