God is Not Hiding
Many people may do their best to run away from God but there is still hope for them because even though they think they are hiding, God is not hiding and God is still there waiting for them. If you are trying to "find God" don't fret - He isn't lost and wandering. Get in position to hear from Him because He is near - stop running around and begin to be still before the Lord. The prophet Daniel would have dreams and visions, this was during his time of rest. Samuel heard the voice of the Lord for the first time while he was in bed, resting. Moses climbed Mount Sinai to appear before the Lord, alone in the quiet.
Where is your secret place? Where do you go to get away from the noise and distractions of uploads so God can give you a big download of what He wants you to do in your life? Away, away, away from all the noise - get before God and listen. God will be there but you have to learn to listen for Him. Ask Him questions and when thoughts come to your mind that you know are not from your head, then you will know it's God speaking and not you thinking. Write down everything He shares and ask questions, He will not withhold anything good from you because His desire is to bless you! If you are in a season of heartache and pain, know that God is still working on your behalf. Even when you don't feel it, He's working! Keep your trust in Him who knows the beginning from the end, His ways are always greater. Trust and obey.
Daniel 7:1b (NLT) …Daniel had a dream and saw visions as he lay in his bed. He wrote down the dream, and this is what he saw…
1 Samuel 3:7-10 (NLT) Samuel did not yet know the Lord because he had never had a message from the Lord before. So the Lord called a third time, and once more Samuel got up and went to Eli. “Here I am. Did you call me?” Then Eli realized it was the Lord who was calling the boy. So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Speak, Lord, your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went back to bed. And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”
Exodus 19:3a (NLT) Then Moses climbed the mountain to appear before God. The Lord called to him from the mountain.
Psalm 1:1-3 (NLT) Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.
