The LORD Will Reveal Himself
By Brian Price 7/28/2013

"1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?" - Psalms 115:1-2

We read in Psalms 115 about the psalmist's petition for God to give glory to his name. Notice how verse 2 says, "Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?" This should be our prayer, that God would reveal himself to this ungodly world so that people cannot brag or blaspheme God. And to be honest, he has revealed himself to this sinful world. It is impossible for God to be completely hidden to the point of not being found. Let's be real here. God fills heaven and earth. He is omnipresent, which means he is everywhere. David prayed in Psalms 139, "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." Although God hides himself from the naked eye of man, yet he is not able to hidden from him altogether. It's impossible. So when the heathen say, "Where is now their God?" They say it out of contempt for the God that loved them and gave his Son for them. Only foolish men tempt God to show himself. The devil did this by saying to Jesus, "If thou be the Son of God, command that this stone be made bread." The devil knows Jesus can turn a stone into bread. But he said this out of contempt for Jesus. The devil's children are no different by provoking God to his face by asking him to show himself on their terms. But give it some time dear Christian, and no doubt the Lord will reveal himself to the heathen. But it will be on his terms, not theirs. The Lord promises to repay them that hate him to their face (Deut. 7:10).
