The Bible is a lot like life. If you just look at a little bit of it you might see God at work or you might not, but if you look at a big chunk you will realize that God was always there, he was on every page, he was in every day.
God is the eternal elephant in the room. You may forget about him for a while but he is always there, you may never mention him but he affects your life every moment of every day. You may do everything you can to live around him but life will never quite make sense without him.
