Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Where.
Upon seeing the word prompt, my mind immediately goes to the passages from this past Sunday’s sermon at church:
“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139:7, NIV)
The greatness of God is incomprehensible. He is infinitely vast exceeding our ability to wrap our finite minds around His infinite being.
Yet, this same God is aware of each of us. He knows each person individually and personally, as if we were the only one He needed to know.
He is present everywhere and there is not a place we can go where He is not present and with us.
Once while traveling in a foreign country, I remember well the feeling of oppression and darkness which settled upon my soul. While driving and looking out the window, I was praying and in the stillness felt the Lord assure me of His promise: “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20, NIV).
While the psalmist’s questions are somewhat rhetorical in nature, they demand only one response:
There is nowhere God is not present.
