“Hiding In Secret?” ( Jeremiah 23:24, NIV ) by Carley Evans


How do I hide from someone who is everywhere? Well, duh — the obvious answer is: I can’t. Why? Because it is impossible to hide from someone who is with me in my hiding place. God almost laughs at our efforts to do something in secret.

“Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the LORD. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the LORD.”

I remember being admonished to “practice the presence of the LORD” — I think I heard that in Sunday School. That’s not a problem. I am keenly aware that He sees me — He sees not only my outsides, but all that stuff I try to hide on the insides, too. He sees all that stuff on the insides because He lives there, too.
