Hide and Seek

 

Theme: Wherever we go, God is there.

Memory Verse:  I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. Psalms 139:11-12 (NLT)

 

Do you think anyone ever tries to play “Hide and Seek” with God? Do you remember the story of Adam and Eve? After they had eaten the fruit that God had told them not to eat, they heard God walking in the garden. They were ashamed of what they had done and didn’t want God to find them. What did they do? They ran and hid among the trees. Did God find them? Sure he did. You can’t hide from God.

Do you remember the story of Jonah? God told him to go to Nineveh and tell the people there to repent of their sin. What did Jonah do? He ran from God and tried to hide. Did God find him? He sure did! And you will remember that Jonah found himself… in the belly of a great fish!

The Bible tells us that God chose David to be the king of Israel because he was “a man after God’s own heart.” (Acts 13:22) But even David did things that did not please God. There were probably times when David wished he could hide from God, but he knew it was impossible. Listen to the words of David. (Psalms 139:1-12 – NLT)

We can’t hide from God. He knows all about us. He knows what we are going to say before we say it and what we are going to do before we do it. It is foolish to play “Hide and Seek” with God. Besides, the reason God comes seeking is because he loves us and wants to bless us. Why would we want to hide from his blessing?

Father, we are thankful that even though you know everything about us, you love us anyway. Amen.
