You Can Not Hide From God

Psalm 139.jpgYou have searched me, Lord and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go 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 around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is a light to you. For you created in my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, “God!” How vast is the sum of them! Where I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand–when I awake, I am still with you. If only you, God would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty! They speak of you with evil intent, your adversaries misuse your name. Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you? I have nothing but hatred for them, I count them my enemies. Search me, God, and know my heart, test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.                                     (Psalm 139:1-24)

These are wonderful words from the book of Psalm, we can read them many times to realize that we can never run away from God. There is no sin so horrible where his love cannot reach us no matter how are we may try. Jesus is Immanuel which means God is with us, and who is an ever present help in times of trouble. No matter what happens, Jesus is sufficient to provide whatever we need. Jesus is my Rock and Redeemer, the one I need no matter who maybe around me. There have been many times in my life where my pain has been so deep from others, however you Lord understand what I am going thru. When others seems to say things that are untrue, your love blankets me, and I know that I am safe from harm with the everlasting love of Jesus. You know me and you know my heart from within, search me to see if there is anything that should not be within me, so that I can continue to keep you closer to my than my own breath. May I Worship the one True God only the “Great I Am” the one whose love is unchanging from day to day.  My Lord it is better one day in your counts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. (Psalm 85:10) These words from the book of Psalm as also my words Oh Lord! my prayer is that I continue to walk humbly with my God and My redeemer, now and forever.

Amen

Alone with God

Mark 30.png The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them. “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.

( Mark 6:30-32)

Have you ever wish this to yourselves, boy I wish that I could run away and hide, hide from everyone so that no one, and I mean no one could ever found you, for at least at little while anyway.  For me that is what I have enjoy doing, I drive my youngest child back and forth to school and before it is time to pick her up after school for the day, I get in my car and get to the school at least an hour or more before hand. During this time for me is another alone time just with God, my heavenly father. This allows me to read any devotionals that I do read from the upper room, any books that I am currently reading but also my time in prayer with God. During this time of the day no one and I mean no one can find me during this time. I realize quite sometime ago how bad I truly needed to be alone with God, to share all my concerns, dreams for myself, but also it has force me to learn to listen for the voice of God. I never know how that may happen but somehow it always does, because before I make any major decision I talk it over with my family and more important I talk it over with God.

Listen to Me! Thus you can live in peace and safety, unafraid. Listening to Me is the way of wisdom, I make wisdom available to everyone who is willing to hear me.

But whoever listens to me will live in safety, and be at ease, without fear of harm”

(Proverbs 1:33)

The way to listen to God is for his children to spend alone time with him, not every so often, or when we feel like it, we need to do this each and everyday.
