The act of hiding can be so childlike... like if we can just be quiet and still, evildoers will not discover us.
Our Father invites us to hide in Him-- with a blind, trusting, no-matter-what faith.
I've seen my grandchildren hide in blankets. Their lumpy forms are sweetly obvious, as are their giggles-- in the sure knowledge that a loving parent is watching them.
How much more is our Father watching us? 'The Eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him' (2 Chronicles 16:9, NLT). 'For His Eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps' (Job 34;21, NASB).
So here's one more thing to know about hope: it's simple and never complicated. Hope doesn't consider how things get done. It's supernaturally expectant.
We can't think it through to a conclusion. We can't see hope's imperceptible path.
What we can do is drop all pretension-- to live, love and hope as simple children.
