My Mom used to hide the wrapped Christmas gifts in the hallway closet. They would remain hidden there until we all went to bed on Christmas Eve. Once everyone was asleep, these same gifts somehow appeared under the Christmas tree, to be discovered Christmas morning. The tags said they were from Santa, but my sister and I knew they were the same gifts hidden under the coats in the closet days before Christmas.

It became a challenge to us to somehow peak under the folds of the wrapping paper to get a hint as to what was inside that gift with my name on it. Sometimes we got a little too aggressive and ripped the paper. That made it easier to see the gift itself, but all the harder to keep the secret that we now knew.

And I don’t recall Mom ever getting mad at us for being in the search party. That’s kind of like God not getting mad at us when we try to search Him out. He wants us to get a little aggressive under the wrapping to find out what’s in there. And how fulfilling it is when we finally discover the gifts He has prepared for us. Let’s discover what He’s hidden for us.

“It is the glory of God is conceal a thing; but the honor of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2 KJV).
