Many times it seems that God is hiding. A TV talk show commentator recently ridiculed our Vice President for saying that God talked to him. I have had that experience as well, but many times He is silent. God does talk to us in many different ways. He speaks through His Word, He speaks through others, and He also speaks to us inwardly. It would be beneficial to all of us to listen intently for His voice!
The Scripture lets us know that He wants to be found, but not as a by-product of our living our lives. He wants us to let other, unimportant(temporal) things go by the wayside that we might 'find' Him. Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me. When you seek me with all your heart, ESV
If finding God is not the most important pursuit of your life, you probably won't discover Him. A God that isn't worth everything isn't worth anything! God gave His all to find us and expects no less love and determination from us. He is waiting there just to be found. How serious is our search for Him? Have we given up anything? NO! Everything!
He is the greatest treasure we could ever discover and His Love knows no limit! Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. ESV
