116. What did he mean when he said, “You will look for me, but you will not find me”? (John 7:36).
People often think they have what it takes to comprehend the ways of God, but until their eyes have been opened to spiritual things, they can’t make the journey. Jesus’ words aren’t simply an invitation to a geographical game of hide and seek, but He is revealing that their hearts are not ready to embrace who He truly is and; therefore, they cannot perceive the true trajectory of His life. Only when we believe will we begin to see the truth about Jesus and understand both His mission and His ultimate destination. Only by faith will we ever be able to find Him, and only by faith will we be able to go where He is.
