Mark 7:24 Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret.
In the Gospel today, Jesus entered town and wanted to slip under the radar. But as we read, it was impossible for Him to do so as the people found out anyways.
There are some levels you rise to in life when it becomes impossible for your impact to be hidden: that is the realm of manifestation. In that dimension of operation, the domains of your influence cannot be covered. Your gifts, your skills, your expertise and the services you offer no longer go unnoticed. No matter how hard you try to hide them, they will be trumpeted from roof tops.
That level of impact in the Kingdom of God does not come by chance, it comes when men are enabled by the Spirit of God.
The very fact, therefore, that there exists a time of unhindered manifestation suggests the necessity of a time in hiding. That time in hiding where one is shaped, sharpened and made battle ready. The period of time where your name shows up on no radar, but you commit to acquiring the right knowledge, subscribing to mentorship, to growth and to developing capacity and mastery.
The eighteen years of Jesus’ life not recorded in scripture gives us a clue about this season of hiding in an individual’s life.
