You Are There

Read Psalm 139:7-12

Bible Thought: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Psalm 139:7, NIV)

David, in speaking to God, says, “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.” These statements seem to convey the message that David felt a comfort in knowing that God was always there. No matter where David was, physically or spiritually, God was there.

When we behold majestic snow-capped mountains, deep blue lakes and foamy ocean waves, or fluffy cotton clouds in motion, we feel awed–and we say to God–“You are there.” When faced with life’s daily stresses, or perhaps financial loss or moves to another city, it may not be as easy to say to God, “You are there.”

David’s words remind us that whether we are experiencing events that elate us to the heights or we are in the depths of despair, whether we are anticipating a move across the continent or making a critical decision, we can trust Him to guide us and hold us. In the brightness of day or in the shadows of night, we can say with confidence, “God, I know you are there.”

Hymn: “It Is Well With My Soul”

Lord, help us to feel Your loving arms of comfort enfolding us wherever we are and whatever we are doing. Grant us peace and comfort in knowing You are there. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
