Where Can I Go From God's Spirit?
It is comforting to know that no matter where I am, God is always with me.
Like the air we breathe, He surrounds us so that anywhere we go in time or space, God is always present. We can never be lost to Him.
If we are riding high on the heights of heaven and are feeling God’s glorious presence, we have the assurance that He is with us.
But even in those dark times of pain and doubt, God is still there.
When our spirits have sunk to the depths of hell, and we can no longer feel or see any evidence of God in our lives; He sees us, and He is closer than our breath. His word promises:The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you.”(Deuteronomy 33:27)
When our faith is challenged by circumstances, and there is no joy or peace, we may feel as if we are trapped in an endless tunnel of darkness.
But God’s word assures us that He will be with us in the dark times of suffering just as much as He is with us in good times, when there is no pain.
“If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.” Psalm 139:11-12
Though pain, suffering, fear, and doubt may have isolated us, He will never forsake us.
“See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me.”(Isaiah 49:16)
If we were to ride to the farthest ends of the earth where we did not know a single soul, God’s Spirit would still be with us, for He cannot lose us. We are ever in His sight.
We need never feel alone. His hand will always guide and support us. May we trust and believe the truths expressed in His word.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that you are always with me and I am never alone. Thank you for your great love for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
