Hiding From God?

My three-year-old granddaughter loves to play hide-and-seek. Without fail, her giggling or wiggling toes give her away. Mom and Dad can always find her.

It’s like that with God. We, His grown-up children, think we can hide from Him, that He can’t see us when guilt or embarrassment or pride send us running away. We try to cover up our hearts and our fears, forgetting that He knows where we are.

He waits for us to run to Him, not from Him.

The great singer of Israel wrote: “You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away” (Psalm 139:2 NLT).

If He knows our thoughts, I’m pretty sure He knows everything else, too.

If you’ve found yourself hiding from God lately, how’s that working out for you?

Try running to Him. He’s waiting with open arms.

“You are my hiding place;” Psalm 32:7 NIV
