No place to hide

“Where are you?”  Don’t you mean, “How are you?”  “Nope, where are you?”  Actually it does not matter “where” we are in this journey with Jesus.  He is “there” also 🙂

Those who believe in God can never, in a way, be sure of Him again. Once they have seen Him in a stable, they can never be sure where He will appear or to what lengths He will go, to what ludicrous depths of self-humiliation He will descend in His wild pursuit of man. If holiness and the awful power and majesty of God were present in this least auspicious of all events, this birth of a peasant’s child, then there is no place or time so lowly or earthbound but that holiness can be present there too. And this means that we are never safe, that there is no place that we can hide from God, no place where we are safe from His power to break in two and recreate the human heart because it is just where He seems most helpless that He is most strong, and just where we least expect Him that comes most fully.  –  Philip Yancey

One thought on “No place to hide

  1. Hmm… I am to the place where this does not make me feel unsafe. Rather, it makes me feel very safe in an “I don’t know what to do next and I don’t know how You’re going to do this” kind of way. 🙂
