#5777 – Search It Out

Good morning people who press past the silence into deeper discovery of God.

Proverbs 25:2 MEV It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.

Sometimes God’s silence is simply an invitation into deeper wonder and awe of who God is and all that He has for us. Silence doesn’t always mean rejection or abandonment.

God is really good at playing hide and seek. But He does it differently than humans do. In this well-known game, the goal is to hide in such a way as to not be found. But with God, He hides in such a way as to be found! In fact, the pursuit of us towards God is what God Himself is after!

People often ask me how to hear God about a certain thing that they want God to speak into. Many times, these people have been seeking God on this issue for a while.

Here’s my answer: Stop seeking an answer, and just focus on seeking God for Himself.

This is not a cop out. This is called the right focus. God is the goal, not an answer to a question or a prayer. These are important – absolutely – but deeper intimacy with God is immeasurably more important.

God delights in seekers who don’t give up on pursuing Him.
