Have you ever tried to flee the presence of the Lord? The Bible says Jonah bought a ticket to Tarshish in an effort to escape from the presence of God and thereby avoid a God-given assignment, not because he thought he might fail, but because he feared he might succeed. Jonah forgot what King David knew so well: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence?” Psalm 139:7. The answer, of course, is “nowhere,” as the prophet Jeremiah heard straight from the mouth of God: “Am I a God near at hand and not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him? Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord” Jeremiah 23:23-24. We serve a God who fills heaven and earth. Everywhere we are, there He is-and He was there long before we arrived. Have a wonderful day!
