Where Can I Go?

Where can I go from Your presence? the psalmist asks.

And continues, where can I flee from Your Spirit?

Have you ever come to grips with the fact that there is absolutely nowhere you can go that God is not already there?

If I take the wings of the dawn; if I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, even there Your hand will hold me, your right hand will lay hold of me.

It is one thing to mentally ascent to the fact that God is everywhere; it quite another dimension when you understand that He holds you, even more, that His (strong hand) right hand holds you tightly.

The psalmist finally proclaims, such knowledge is too high for me, I simply cannot attain to it!

These words of the 139th psalm are only the beginning of the description of how tenderly and completely God cares for you. Open the 139th psalm and hang-out there for awhile. While you are there, talk openly with the God who loves you so incredibly even though He knows you completely!

I remember once just wanting to leave it all behind, the whole following Christ thing. That lasted about 2 minutes because the love of the Lord just does not let us go. "Even if I make my bed in the depths..."

He never lets go. Thank goodness.

Aren't we so thankful that Jesus is far above and beyond our circumstances but that He knows every detail very well! There is nowhere that we can go that He has not already been.

Praise to our glorious Lord and God, Jesus!
