Day 273/365

“The Lord God called out to the man and asked, “Where are you?” (Gen 3:9‬ ‭CEV‬‬)

I’ve been hearing this particular expression more and more lately. People calling out to GOD in their hurt shouting, “Where are You?“ The thing is, GOD hasn’t moved, it’s us!

This reminds me of a great story. An old rabbi was once asked to keep his eye on a group of children playing hide and seek. Finally, all the children were caught and they scampered away to play other things. After a while the old man heard a plaintiff sobbing and looking around caught sight of a young boy coming out of a clump of bushes.

“Son, what’s wrong, why are you crying?” The boy said, “We were all playing hide-and-seek. I was hiding, and they didn’t find me. They quit looking for me, and they left me.” He began to sob. The old man realized that this child’s sorrow was like God’s sorrow. God has, in a sense, concealed Himself and bid us to look for Him, but no one is looking for Him.

Holy Spirit, open our eyes and our hearts and our fists today. Open our eyes to look for GOD, open our hearts so we can truly see him, and prize open our fists so that we can let go of the things that have shrouded him from our view. Amen. ❤️
