Where can I go to escape Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? Psalm 139:7 HCSB
Recently my wife travelled to Nashville, Tennessee to help with our granddaughter and grandson. She immensely enjoys spending time with our children and our grandchildren. Although I am always glad she is able to be of service, I miss her when she is gone. When I worked for the Missouri Baptist Convention I frequently travelled across the state to lead training conferences which often required spending consecutive nights away from my family. I never enjoyed being away from my wife and children.
It is comforting to know that God is always with us no matter where we go. There is no place we can go that God is not there. God is omnipresent – He is everywhere. No matter what we are experiencing – pain, suffering, illness, or sadness, God is always with us. We are never away from God’s love and comfort.
Challenge: Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Read Romans 8:35-39. Thank God for His matchless love and that He is always there for you no matter what you are going through.
