A God who hides Himself

Hsinchu Mountains -- Bamboo Forest

In whom though not seeing Him at present, yet believing, you exult with joy that is unspeakable and full of glory. 1 Peter 1:8

“…that when we are most conscious of impotence, God is often most powerfully present. Don’t look for greater things. Don’t look for things other than they are. Don’t set your expectation on some great vision or on some great experience. And don’t expect anything outward, for the God who hides Himself is at work within your life, and He is working mightily. Your responsibility is to cooperate with Him by responding to His voice within – that ‘still small voice’, that voice that seems so much a part of your own feelings that you scarcely recognize it as a voice at all. To that voice, registered in the deepest depths of your being, you must say, ‘Amen,’ for there, secretly and ceaselessly, the God who Himself is working.”

(Witness Lee, A God who hides Himself)

God works secretly. God works silently. God continues to work in us, in our lives, though we may sometimes not be aware of it.
