Hide and Seek
Unlike parents who love to play hide and seek with their children, the Lord does not. His Word says
Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6.
How often in good times we run and hide from the Lord, preferring to do things which may not please Him. He gives us serious advice – Seek Him while He may be found. Not always will you find Him. There will be times when He will not hear our call.
Let us not make it a bad habit to run from Him – it does not do us good. In fact it stunts our growth to maturity. In immaturity we will behave like children when the winds of change or opposition blow. Then we will be tossed to and from and it will be frightening for a child. Let us be steadfast and growing in the Lord, pleasing Him and realizing the fullness of His anointing and blessings even in rough waters. I prefe His continuing perfect peace with Jesus in my ship. Do you?
