Without God's guidance, we'd live in the unknown, not knowing how we got here and where we're going. With Christ the Lord, what's going to happen next may not be immediately clear, but where we are going we always know. We are no longer lost—this is the big difference. We must stop playing hide-and-seek with the Lord, for he knows everything and we will surely lose any game we play against him. Besides, beating God at hide-and-seek would mean that we remain lost forever. If you are truly smart, you would simply turn to the Lord and say "Here I am, Lord. I am ready to serve you."
