Are you hiding? People often hide. They hide from other people, they hide from responsibilities, they hide from their issues, they hide from themselves but most importantly and perhaps the most damaging is when they hide from God. Or, correction, when they TRY to hide from God. Since God is all seeing and all knowing, you can never really hide from God now can you?
Fear makes us do stupid things. when we make a mistake instead of running to God, who is the only one that can help us, and correct our mess, we run in the opposite direction and then we hide.
God knows all of your issues. He alone knows ALL about you. God is the only one who knows what hurts, embarrassments, pain, and insecurities you harbor in the inner most recesses of your soul. God is the only one that can heal that hurt and take away your pain, so why are you hiding?
That facade you put on for friends, co-workers, family, and the world is only a mask to hide your inner turmoil. People may look at you and think that you have it all together. They may think that you are the most solid person they know, nothing ruffles you, you are the ROCK to everyone around you. And yet late at night, when you are all alone, you feel empty, you feel despair, and you do not know what to do. You have spent so much of your life being the rock for others that you have in essence hidden yourself FROM yourself! You have no clue how to access the REAL YOU because it has been so long hidden.
Times like this is when you should run TO GOD not hide FROM GOD! Psalms 147:3 says, "He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds." In other words ONLY GOD can fix you, heal you, comfort you, restore you, or strengthen you.
It is time to stop running from Him, stop hiding from Him, and open up your heart and EMBRACE HIM!
