30 Mar A Game Of Hide and Seek
When my kids were little I would play hide-and-seek with them all the time. There was one time when Jake was about 3, we were playing, and I hid in the laundry room. The room was small so it was hard to find a good place to hide, but it was dark, and that made hiding a little easier. When Jake came to look for me he opened the door and said, “Dad, you in there?”
I said, “no.” He shut the door, and took off.
Sometimes when I would play with the kids I would hide behind the door, but would leave an arm or leg sticking out where they could see me. If I’d have just stood behind the door they wouldn’t have been able to see me. They didn’t know to look behind the door because of how young they were.
You’re dealing with an enemy that is about as intelligent as my kids were when they were little. The enemy can’t look around the door to see you because Jesus is the door. The enemy knows that he’s been defeated and he’s already afraid. He knows that he’s been kicked out and recognizes the anointing of God. It scares him to death when you remain behind the door.
You’re life is hidden in Christ and it’s only when you step outside of him that you’re no longer hidden. You know you’re not hidden. It’s not that you’re a target, don’t be afraid. You start thinking of yourself and that’s how you become unhidden.
Remember Colossians 3:3 says, “. . . Your life is hidden in Christ with God.” That means when the enemy tries to find you he sees Christ, when he looks at you he sees Christ, and he can’t attack you because you’re hidden in Christ. The enemy can’t touch you as long as you remain in Christ. Remain in Christ!
