1 Samuel 10:21-22 When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their families, the family of Matri was chosen. And Saul the son of Kish was chosen. But when they sought him, he could not be found. Therefore they inquired of the LORD further, "Has the man come here yet?" And the LORD answered, "There he is, hidden among the equipment."
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
your life you may feel as if the Lord is literally a "lamp"
unto your feet. You may rarely know His plans for your life much further
than your very next step. However, if God ever desires you to go a different
direction than you presumed He had planned for your path, I pray you're
not so hidden among the stuff of this life that you are of no use to Him.
The Book of Psalms says, "We spend our years as a tale that is told
..." (Psalm 90:9)
