Hide and Seek

February 16, 2011 Donna New

Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I flee from your Presence? Psalm 139:7

Hide and seek was the most fun game when I was young. Finding a place to hide, oh no! being found, then the chase back to home base gave just too much joy. My heart would be pulsing inside of me showing that I really was completely alive. We played hours of that with my cousins. That’s how we became close with a bond between us to this day.

We don’t or shouldn’t play games with the Spirit. But sometimes we hide not wanting Him to see us. We’ve done something ugly, or are wanting to walk away, or we hide in our busyness to avoid something He’s calling us to do. This isn’t OK with Him. It breaks His heart. But He doesn’t get angry or sit idly by. He pursues us. That call in our heart to read His word is a little pull from Him on our heartstring. That nudge to go to church is Him whispering in our ear. The relentless urge to confess our sin to Him is the Spirit’s finger on our conscience.

What a privilege to have a God like that. There’s no getting away from His conviction or His call or His conscience. Inside all of these pulls on our lives by Him is the fact that there’s no getting away from His love.

    Awesome stuff. I often think that when I see injustice the Spirit asks ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Which is a sobering thought!
