Last night we played an awesome game of Hide-and-Seek. When you are playing with a 4 & 2 year old, it get’s really interesting. As everyone knows, the goal of the game is not to be found. However, when you play with my kids, they want to be found. They hide in the same place every time and when you ask, “Where are you?, ” they say, “Right here!” It’s adorable!

As we were playing it hit me: the first game of Hide-and-Seek was played in Genesis chapter 3. Things were going great in the Garden of Eden until Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the tree that God had forbidden. Then, the game of Hide-and-Seek began. Look at what the Bible says:

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” Genesis 3:8-9 (NIV)

I’m not sure about you, but at times I play the same game with God. For some reason, I actually believe that God cannot see me (or at least I hope He can’t). But, what’s amazing is that God desires for me to play Hide-and-Seek like my kiddos. Instead of running away, He wants me to jump up and say, “Here I am!”

Something may have happened that has caused you to attempt to hide from God. Try a new version of the game – jump up and shout in your heart, “Here I am!” He’ll come to you and restore your relationship with Him.
