God “conceals” His glory in much the same way. He does not do it in a malicious manner or play a game with us. Rather, it is His way of revealing His majesty and might, power and presence. He is always there doing something in some way. But it is not always obvious.
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings,” said Solomon. In fact, on a previous occasion, he said, “The Lord has said that He would dwell in a dark cloud.”
So, where does all of this leave us? Why would He not be obvious all of the time? Why does He hide from us at all? It is because He is above and beyond us though beside and within us anxious for us to seek and trust Him.
God is worthy of worship and wonder even when He cannot be seen when dark clouds gather. Though we may walk through the valley of the shadow, His light is always waiting for us when we walk by faith and trust in Him.
Prayer: Give us courage, Lord, to walk in faith when days are dark, nights long and the journey difficult. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
