Hidden By Design

Hidden By Design

“In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me.” Isa 49:2 NKJV

When you’re called to serve God in a particular capacity, it’s not unusual to go through a period of anonymity where you feel invisible. Isaiah was called of God “from the womb” (v. 1 NKJV). But he experienced a season of being hidden “in the shadow” while God perfected his ministry. When a vision takes a long time to come to fruition, and you’ve sacrificed and worked without recognition or seeing results, it’s easy to feel like you’re wasting your life. Isaiah was human too. He got discouraged and said, “I have labored to no purpose…spent my strength…for nothing” (v. 4 NIV). But just because you feel that way doesn’t mean it’s true. “God…rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Heb 11:6 NIV), and you’re no exception. It took thirty years before Jesus started His public ministry. Moses, David, John the Baptist, and Paul endured years of obscurity before they were brought to the forefront. In God’s Kingdom there are no overnight sensations or flash-in-the-pan successes. One Christian author says: “Anyone who wants to be used of God will experience hidden years in the backside of the desert. During that time the Lord is polishing, sharpening and preparing us to fit into His bow, so at the right time, like ‘a polished shaft’ He can launch us into fruitful service. The invisible years are years of serving, studying, being faithful in another person’s ministry and doing the behind-the-scenes work.” The Bible says, “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work” (Heb 6:10 NIV). Be patient; when the time is right He will bring forth the fruit He placed inside you.
