Thought of the Day !!

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 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.
                            Psalm 139:7-10 (NIV)

There are some who try to run away from God.  They try to run away from responsibility, or possibly the moral implications of their actions.  Jonah comes to mind.  He didn't like what God was calling him to do, so he went the other direction.  We're just like Jonah if we fool ourselves into believing that God doesn't speak to us and that this or that ministry is for someone else.  God is always with us and calls to us regularly.  Will we try to hide or will we accept His calling upon our lives?  

Then there are those who find comfort from the fact that God is always with them.  When we learn that God is not an angry Parent ready to discipline us for the least little thing, but is instead a loving and caring Parent watching over us, we will see God more clearly.

When understanding that God is omnipresent (ever present; present everywhere), there should be a mix of respect for our Creator to do as He sees best for us to do as well as a sense of security that only a parent can lend to a small child.

Go with God today, for He is already going with you.

In the love of Christ,
