"Truly, You are a God who hides himself, O God of Israel, the Savior.

Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other."

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:15, 22‬

Here’s a puzzle. God hides Himself, yet reveals Himself. He calls Himself the Savior and invites all the people on the planet, to the ends of the earth, to come to Him and be saved, but He hides Himself.

God revealed Himself in the Lord Jesus; God made flesh. God hid Himself in a human baby, to reveal Himself to the world.

God hid Himself in weakness and allowed men to crucify Him so that people all around the world would see Him and be drawn to Him. (“And I, if I am lifted up, will draw all men to Myself,” He said.)

God hid Himself in a sealed and guarded tomb to reveal Himself in His resurrection to a few women, and then to His chosen disciples. He hid Himself in them to reveal Himself to the nations.

God hides Himself in us, indwelling our hearts, to reveal Himself to a world that needs to see His love and His power to save and heal, lived out by people who know Him.

You are truly a God who hides Himself, oh God of Israel, my Savior! Lord Jesus, You have hidden yourself in my heart; be revealed in my life. Let people be drawn to You through what they see in me today, and turn to You and be saved. Amen.
