Fenced in and Hidden

October 13, 2010 Donna New

Jeremiah 33:2,3 Thus says the Lord Who made [the earth] the Lord Who formed it to establish it – the Lord is His Name. Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know…

Biology is what I majored in during my college days, Chemistry my minor. I didn’t use them outside of school for work but they still fascinate me. There is so, so much to learn about God’s earth, the animals, the people and their intricacies. Discoveries have come but that’s because they are fenced in and hidden by God. As He allows we discover.

His earth has had many things to discover…photosynthesis, DNA, all manner of medical research. But even more important than those discoveries are the gems fenced in and hidden in the Lord. There’s so much to know about Him. The big, universal question we all want to ask Him is why is there suffering in the world especially of the innocent. And there are many other questions and the answers are fenced in and hidden right now.

But what I know, what I’ve discovered is that He loves us with an everlasting, unending love. And He draws us to Himself with lovingkindness. He is a gracious God that waits patiently, not only waits, but pursues us patiently waiting for us to open our hearts to His love. He orchestrates details to teach us and woo us and just to brighten our day. He is intimately acquainted with all that has happened to us, especially the suffering. His own Son suffered throughout His life and death so that the Lord would mercifully feel what we feel.

That doesn’t answer all my questions but it’s enough to make Him irresistible to me. It’s enough to make me love Him for a lifetime and wait for the answers until I’m at His feet in worship on that Day.
