We have a couple of freezers at my house. One sits inside, in the kitchen. It is easily accessible to me in my everyday life when I need food. Another sits out in the garage; it’s further away and I don’t use it as often. It’s simply not convenient.
Ice cream was on sale at our local grocery store this week. My mom called to see what flavors we wanted, and my dad and I answered. I requested mint chocolate chip, but my dad insisted we already had that. I argued. I didn’t see it. I checked the freezer again. “See?!” I pointed out. “I can’t find it. We don’t have it.” He directed me to go and look in the garage freezer, and there it was, nestled in the back of the bottom shelf. It wasn’t hidden. It was put away so that I could find it and enjoy it when I was in need of refreshment.
Now, if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you should know I’m about to show you the spiritual picture God showed me. Even in the super ordinary thing of looking for ice cream. He’s everywhere, and He’ll speak to you wherever you’ll listen.
Oftentimes, we have our own little space for Jesus. It’s convenient, close, and supplies us with a little bit of food everyday. A daily devotional, the verse of the day, whatever. It’s easy and fast and we can check it off our list. But what happens when that doesn’t satisfy us anymore? Will we sit and mope that God has left us and isn’t speaking to us? Or will we press in and seek Him harder, even if it’s a longer journey? There’s refreshment waiting. It’s not hiding from us; it’s waiting for us. Will we doubt what God has in store for us just because we can’t see it? It may be out of our way. It may not be routine or ordinary. But oh, it is sweet.
“Oh, taste and see that the Lordis good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”
“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
