Available to be Found

              Do you remember playing Hide and Go Seek when you were a child? Someone would be the seeker. She’d close her eyes, face the base, and begin to count by fives. When she reached one hundred, she’d shout, “Ready of not, here I come!” She couldn’t see the other kids in the game, but they usually could see her from their hiding places. It would then be her job to find the hiders.

             Somewhat like the childhood game, we may come upon times when our eyes are tightly closed as we count off the troubles bombarding us. Once we open our eyes, it may seem as though we’re all alone, but we’re not. God is not only within earshot, His eyes are watching our every move. When we seek for Him, He is easy to find because He’s always close to the base with us.

            Second Chronicles 15:2 says, “…The LORD is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you…” (NKJ). Just call out. God really does want us to know Him and He makes Himself available to be found.

           Ready or not, God’s right there.
