We have all wanted to hide and escape for awhile. Not even the bathroom is safe for parents with persistant kids. My friend tells her kids, 'unless you're bleeding, go away.'
As the police search today for the second suspect of the Boston Marathon bombing, it is just a matter of time before being caught. It's not 'if' but 'when' and lessening the threat of more harm. The lockdown of Boston hopes to keep people safer and hinders the hiding in the crowd idea.
We cannot hide from God. He sees all, knows all and is everywhere. The joke about 'whether the man in the woods is still wrong, even if he's alone' can remind us that if it's wrong in God's eyes then yes, it's wrong anywhere and everywhere. Unless you are saved and your wrongs are erased then judgement day will recall all your hidden secrets and you will have no where to hide.
Your attempts to hide anything from God are as obvious as an ostrich burying his head in the sand.
