I think that in order to reach our ultimate purpose of why were in this world, WE need to find Hashem daily in our lives. If everything just came to us, then there would be no challenge in becoming the best we could become...because it would be so clear. That is the whole chain of golus. A lot of times there is hester panim to us little human beings.but one day everything will mae perfect sense. We just have to believe.

hide but everpresent

Greeting Rabbi in agreement with your words, words of wisdom, it is about faith trust, word is truth, we must chase L-rd, faith trust amen sometimes when we think he is not there, he is as close as the breath i breathe amen

G-d dosnt reveal himself because if he does, that takes away the whole free will thing for us. It would be obvious if we saw hashems hand. Us jews are jews because we have emunah

To make us stronger

If we lived in a world surrounded by obvious miracles we would not act, for why would we need to. However in a world of hidden, and revealed miracles, we can act and change the world. When we act the world is changed and we feel we did it on our own.

We are hiding from G'd

In this week's parasha it says: (Shemos 33:20): "No human can see My [G'd's] face and live." Nevertheless, G'd did not hide from Moses. They spoke "face to face", figuratively speaking (please excuse the double pun). It is open to each and all of us to become like Moses and speak to G’d. Not so easy, but G’d is not the one who is hiding. We are.
