Top 7 Bible verses-Hiding from God

“I’m Hiding!”

“You can’t see me!”

He stands in plain sight…

And closes his eyes.

He can’t see us…

So he assumes we can’t see him.

It makes perfect sense to a three-year-old.

How like that three-year-old I can be…

Like him, I stand in plain sight of God….

And close my eyes and shout…

“I’m hiding, God.”

“You can’t see me!”

It makes perfect sense to a frail, fallen human like me.

God watches…

And asks…

Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord. Jeremiah 23:24

Hearing Him, I cry out…

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. Psalm 139:7-10

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:35-39

And in that moment, realize that my only hiding place…

My only place of strength and comfort and salvation…

Is in God himself…

You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.  Psalm 32:7

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, … Psalm 91:1-16

For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.  Psalm 61:3

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  Psalm 18:2
