Hi Moorad, you wrote:

I think we can infer his motivations from Scripture. When the children
of Israel were led in the desert by a cloud by day and a pillar of fire
by night there should have been no mutterings in the camp about who was
leading them - maybe where they were going. This is consistent with his
nature to reveal Himself to His followers and remain concealed from
unbelievers. Christ spoke in parables both to reveal and conceal.

So in seeking to know God we may receive individual confirmations of
God's work in our lives, but He won't be put in a box and dangled in
front of outsiders. Thus ID proponents will never find that "proof"
they desire to beat unbelievers into submission.
