Sermon entitled “God Is Everywhere” by Alistair Begg of Truth for Life.
Can we hide from God? The Bible contains many examples of people trying to do just that. In Psalm 139, however, David ponders this question and rightly understands that since God is everywhere, there is no place we can flee from His presence, nor should we wish to. Alistair Begg reminds us that although by nature each one of us hides from God, the Lord still lovingly seeks us, guides us with His hand, and comforts us with the remarkable truth that because of Christ, He is Immanuel, “God with us”—everywhere!
Psa. 139:7 ¶ aWhere can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
Psa. 139:8 aIf I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, bYou are there.
Psa. 139:9 If I lift up the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Psa. 139:10 Even there Your hand will alead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
Psa. 139:11 If I say, “Surely the adarkness will bbruise me, And the light around me will be night,”
Psa. 139:12 Even the adarkness is not too dark for You, And the night is as bright as the day. bDarkness and light are alike to You.
