When we stand before the congregation to minister, people should see the Lord and not us. We should be so hidden in God that people experience His presence when they come in contact with us. Movement ministry is never about showcasing ourselves.

When we do not take care to get our flesh out of the way, the glory of the Lord cannot be revealed. No flesh shall glory in His presence. Hiding is not about covering up sins, becoming a character on a stage, or faking it until we make it. Being hidden is when only the Lord gets the honor from the ministry that is demonstrated.

We can only hide in Him when we seek Him. If we seek Him, we will find Him. When we find Him, we find everlasting life and the fullness of joy. Having these things will enable us to lead others to Him and receive eternal life. Once we encounter His presence, we must continue to move with Him. We can continue to do that if we hide and seek and remain hidden in Him.

Deuteronomy 4:29 (NKJV)
But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

2 Chronicles 12:14 (NKJV)
And he did evil, because he did not prepare his heart to seek the LORD.

Psalm 17:8-9 (NKJV)
Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me.

Psalm 27:5 (NKJV)
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

Proverbs 22:3 (NKJV)
A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.
