God Is Everywhere


"If I rise on the wings of dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast" (Ps. 139;9-10).

In this passage, David not only recognized that God was all-knowing, but that He was all-seeing. "Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths you are there" (V7-8).

Since God is everywhere, it is impossible to escape from His presence. There are no "God proof places." He knows about everything, everyone, and everywhere. Everything about us is open to Him. "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account" (Heb. 4:13).

We sometimes try to fly away and hide from our problems. We try to hide from our circumstances. We even try to hide from people. If we could move at the speed of light, we could not escape our problems, or get away from the frustrations and pressures of life. It is comforting to know that even there in the midst of them He is with us. We may be in despair but even there He will uphold us with His right hand of power.

Are we fretting about our circumstances today? Maybe it is because we are trying to go it alone. Lets not resist God's will. He is waiting for us to let go of our own plans and let Him give us His. His are always the best.

Lets look and say as David did in Psalm 139:17-18. "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnunber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you." Isn't that wonderful to know? "When I awake, I am still with you."

Have a great Friday.. Let your light shine for Him...Love mark Phil. 4:11
