Where Could I Go?

Bible Reading: Psalm 139:1-12

Nestled in the Himalayas and bordered by Nepal, Tibet and China, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world at 29,035 feet. 

Some mountain climbers have made it to the top. Other adventurers have explored earth’s deepest caverns. The vast cave Krubera-Voronja is located near where Western Asia and Eastern Europe intersect. Scientists have recorded its depth at 7,188 feet.

Some places in our world, however, are still untouched by humans. But since God created our world, he is in all places on this globe and in the heavens. 

Why, then, do we think we can go somewhere he will not be? 

The psalmist realised he could not hide from God’s presence. Likewise, we cannot be called by him into a circumstance or place where he doesn’t precede us. What a wonderful truth to remember! 

After all, God said, ‘I will never leave you or forsake you’ (Hebrews 13:5), and Jesus reminded the disciples, ‘I am with you always’ (Matthew 28:20). These assurances enable us to live as faithful servants of our loving God.

Prayer: Dear Lord, everywhere we go we see your immeasurable creativity. We pray that you will open our minds and spirits to the possibilities of what you want to do in our lives. Amen
