I spent many years as a child enjoying the game of Hide n’ Seek like most children. I loved being the one to seek far more than being the one who had to hide. Finding those who were hidden was such a fun challenge. And the joy and excitement that was experienced when I found my friend would leave us in shouts of joy.
Although God isn’t hiding from us, we still have the joy of seeking Him. The depths of who He is and of His love are never ending. Every time that I seek Him I end up finding more of Him. Just like in my childhood game; I find myself in shouts of joy when I am once again surprised by finding Him in a new way.
I don’t know if I am seeking Him more or if He is choosing easier “hiding places” but this wonderful exchange seems to be yielding greater revelations of His character and love than ever before. I continually find myself undone by His goodness.
So…seek Him! You will find Him. Seek Him with all of your heart and He will add all things that you need. Enter into this wonderful exchange of love and friendship.
This is the true promise for all who seek Him with all of their hearts,
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.
