Peek-A-Boo… I See You!
MARCH 17, 2021
KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Psalms 69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
I read a humorous story about a female skier named Picabo Street, (pronounced Peek-A-Boo Street). This famous Olympic skier, Picabo Street, is apparently not just an athlete, it is also said that she is a nurse. The report went on to say she was working in the Intensive Care Unit of a Metropolitan Hospital where they report that she is not permitted to answer the telephone. It was said that it simply caused too much confusion when she would answer hospital phone and say, “Picabo, ICU.”
Well, I am not sure if the story is true or not, but I found it to be a bit funny. What is not funny is that so many Christians today feel they can play a real game of Peek-a-boo with God. Thinking somehow that sometimes God does not see them or maybe He is too busy to notice them for just a little while. It seems odd to me that we might wish to hide from God on one day, but the very next day when trouble comes knocking at our door we are crying out, “Oh God can’t you see what is happening?” Well, the good news for us is God always sees what is happening. The sad news is He does not always enjoy what He sees.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
As we go through the day today, we should try to remember that God is always vigilant. He is watching over His loved children every moment of every day. Let’s keep Him in our mind, as He keeps us in His.
