"No Hiding Place"

“No Hiding Place”



Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?  If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.   If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.  If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.         Psalm 139:7-12


Many people try to HIDE from God, mainly because of their sinfulness.  However, David paints a picture of God’s omnipresence, which means that He is EVERYWHERE at the same time.  A little something to wrap your mind around.    You cannot HIDE from Him.  He is EVERYWHERE. 


If you could go into the HIGHEST heavens, He’s there.  If you went to the DEEPEST part of the earth, He’s there.  If you could fly as FAST as the speed of light from the east across to the far side of the Mediterranean Sea.  He’s there. 


Even the DARKNESS cannot hide you.  He has the ULTIMATE night vision.  DARKNESS and LIGHT are the same to Him.  He SEES ALL, KNOWS ALL, And HEARS ALL.  Even to KNOWING our EVERY thought, before we think it.  What an AWESOME God we serve!!


So you see, when you sin and are trying to hide it, you CANNOT HIDE it from the ONE, who really matters, God.  He is your JUDGE, and He will bring JUDGMENT on those who PRACTICE sin.  Those who THINK they are getting by with it, but in ALL actuality they are NOT. 


Don’t be fooled by the Devil, God will not be fooled.  He’s EVERYWHERE and He KNOWS EVERYTHING.  So, if you are living in sin, you cannot hide ANY of it, at least NOT from God.  And if you have NOT asked Him to FORGIVE you of your sins, then you are destined for an ETERNITY in HELL a place of torment, torture, heartache, and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE.  But God’s AMAZING GRACE and ABUNDANT MERCY is affording you the opportunity NOW, to change your destination and to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and STOP trying to HIDE from Him.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
