god is not playing hide-and-seek.
he is not waiting for you to find him.
to guess where he might have hidden himself. to pass a test of searching. to not accidentally overlook him behind a still curtain.
he is certain in making himself known.
he calls out marco polo evidence of his presence then and now. it is printed clearly on creation. in sharpie.
“since what may be known about god is plain to them, because god has made it plain to them. for since the creation of the world god’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made…”
romans 1:19-20 (NIV)
