“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.”Psalms 139:7-12
This section of one of the most quoted Psalms attempts to answer a “where” question. If you choose to believe the author’s answer, you might find the root answer to any question you have in life. Here’s why: No matter where we go in our minds, our emotions, our spirits, or our bodies, God is there. This should present great comfort and encouragement.
- There is no place where He can’t be present…that means in our highs and lows, He can and should be acknowledged.
- There is no place where He can’t provide guidance…that means in our clarity and confusion, He can and should be trusted.
- There is no place where He can’t provide victory…that means in our peace and tumult, He can and should be worshipped.
Because God is present everywhere, guidance to victory is always available.
Seek to always acknowledge Him, to trust Him, to worship Him.
Looking for feedback: what “wheres” in life do you find it hard to see God is there?
