finding God on the way or in the way?

…Instead of trusting God, they took over. They were absorbed in what they themselves were doing. They were so absorbed in their “God projects” that they didn’t notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road. And so they stumbled into him and went sprawling. Isaiah gives us the metaphor for pulling this together:

Careful! I’ve put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion
a stone you can’t around.
but the stone is me! If you’re looking for me,
you’ll find me on the way, not in the way.

Romans 9:30-33 (The Message)
