God who hides Himself

The name, “God who hides Himself,” occurs in the context of a prophecy in which God said that He would raise up a pagan king to return exiled Israel to her land. The name puts into words what we could often say about God’s actions: no one would ever have guessed how events would turn out. God takes seemingly impossible situations and miraculously turns them around—even on the international scale. His ways are hidden to us ahead of time, but amaze us when they unfold. A similar idea is conveyed in the name “Revealer of mysteries.”
