HIDE AND SEEK WITH GOD
This week I have been hammered by the immensity of what it means to "abandon," "forsake," or "leave alone" the omnipresent God, God who is everywhere. How is that possible? It is ONLY possible if God allows us to leave, allows us to turn our back upon God Himself.

I love to play peek-a-boo. My grandson Cayden loves to watch as I cover my face and then move my hands and say peek-a-boo. He’ll laugh and laugh. Ever wonder why that works so well at entertaining babies. It’s because they haven’t figured out yet that you really haven’t gone

An attribute of God alone. It is the quality of having all knowledge (Is. 40:14). Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Omniscience represent the nature of God concerning His relation to the creation. (Source unknown - 10,000 Sermon Illustrations)

NOTHING IS HIDDEN FROM GOD
R.C. Sproul: "There are many things in my life that I do not want to put under the gaze of Christ. Yet I know there is nothing hidden from Him. He knows me better than my wife knows me. And yet He loves me. This is the most amazing thing of all about God’s grace. It
