Devotional – The Key to Winning Hide & Seek
You are a hiding place for me. Psalm 32:7a ESV
The key to winning a game of Hide & Seek is obvious: find the best hiding place! Of course, it helps to be small and limber enough to squeeze into tight hiding places and have the patience and self-control to remain quiet until everyone else is found.
When I was a child I excelled at Hide & Seek. Like a contortionist I could shoehorn myself into the best of hiding spaces– I even had the patience and self-control to silently remain frozen in time and space until everyone else was found.
Now that I’m older Hide & Seek has become much more of a challenge! Why? Well, I keep getting in my own way. I’m no longer small or limber enough to squeeze into most hiding spots. Nor do I have the patience or self-control to quietly hide for any length of time when I could be doing something much more interesting!
The key to living a victorious life is no different than the key to winning at Hide & Seek! You need a hiding place and there is no better hiding place than the Lord. Just, don’t let yourself get in the way!
