Enid, Open Door celebrates second anniversary

ENID—“…Thus says the Holy One, the True One, the One Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one will close, and Who closes and no one opens: I know your works.

Evil multiplies, God hides

“Yes, you are a God who hides, God of Israel, Savior” (Isa. 45:15, CSB). Why isn’t God more obvious?
