God: plays hide and seek with us at times….
Jeremiah 29:13 (KJV) “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”.
I think our Father likes to look upon us and gauge our true intentions toward Him; as He introduces Himself to us and allow us to get to know parts of His character, He opens some of Himself to us.
Then when we get comfortable with that measure, He hides Himself to see if we are really interested and how far we will go to seek more of Him; He does this hide and seek game with us.
Some of us get discouraged and give up, for we tend to be just that comfortable with what He has granted us, and shrug as if to say, “well if He needed me to have more He would give it to me”.
What if when He hides, you start to pursue Him with a passion? See where a spirit of desperation will get you in the pursuit of God; even as you pursue other interests in your life.
Try becoming the hunter in this relationship and see what unfolds…
