Sometimes trouble finds you. But to avoid unnecessary problems; hide.

rayphe-profile-picture-468x351Have you ever played “Whack-A-Mole”?  I haven’t been to an arcade for several years now but there used to be large, commercial versions of the game found there.  The one in the video is obviously a small, game board for home use with younger (or older) children.

The idea is that the mole hides, below the surface, and then when he sticks his head up he presents himself as a target to the intruder.

His Banner
In the Bible, Moses built an altar unto Yahweh God and called it Yahweh Nissi; “Yahweh my banner” Exodus 17:15 .  He did that because God had sworn to protect him.

Stay down
Likewise, Colossians 3:3 says that one who is in covenant with Jesus, is “hidden” in Him.  In other words, whether you have entered into covenant with Him or not, whenever you poke your head up beyond His protection, you are leaving yourself exposed to evil forces that want to pound you into the ground.

Your Life
Also, Colossians 3:4 tells us that Jesus is life itself.  So as long as you remain “In Him” you can experience the abundant life that only He has to offer.  It’s not just a cliche’, theology or religion, it is reality.  Even today, for those who seek Him, He continues to be our banner as we remain “hidden” in Him.

Are you tired of doing things your way, or just giving God a token nod, only to find things have a way of going “splat”?

Seek Him today and hide in Him; you will find it has a much more harmonious outcome.

I’ll see you out in the field,

Parson Rayphe
