People who “pray in the runs” tend to get desperate when they pray, and sometimes it may feel like God doesn’t answer our prayers. We may feel that God is not with us.
There are a lot of times in Scripture where God’s presence is obvious to the reader, but the attention of the people is elsewhere. When Jesus was born, many people saw him as just another refugee child.
For us to see God today, we must slow down. Instead of asking how can God appear to us, we need to do ask ourselves what can we do differently to see God.
