The Russians, I am told, report that they have not found God in outer space. On the other hand, a good many people in many different times and countries claim to have found God, or been found by God, here on earth.
Space travel really has nothing to do with the matter. To some, God is discoverable everywhere; to others, nowhere. Those who do not find Him on earth are unlikely to find Him in space. (Hang it all, we’re in space already; every year we go a huge circular tour in space.) But send a saint up in a spaceship and he’ll find God in space as he found God on earth. Much depends on the seeing eye. ~C.S Lewis
It’s quite true, isn’t it? We say we want to see Him.
If we can’t see God all around us, in our every day, there’s very little hope of finding Him in the heavens or in the church or in the words of a teacher or preacher or saint. We ask for more, for an epiphany, while He’s standing in front of us, sitting on the bench beside us, sharing in our quiet thoughts and abiding in our most secret places.
This isn’t Hide and Seek. He isn’t hiding.
It’s just Seek
