Psalms Chapter 139 9-10
“If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”
We might live in the deepest basement or even the highest apartment or mountain, but in truth, no matter where we are, God is there; He is watching. He can see us because He has no equal and knows all, sees all, is all; everywhere present. Proverbs 15:3 says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”
In Luke 12:2 Jesus said, “For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.” That goes for EVERYTHING. Nothing that is hid, will stay hid and eventually everything be made known and exposed.
Joshua 7 tells us how Achan found this to be true and it cost him. When the Israelites destroyed Jericho, they were commanded NOT to take anything for themselves. But Achan saw a garment, some silver and some gold, which he took and buried in a hole in his tent floor. No one saw this, but God did…Achan forgot that God was watching and in the end he was destroyed along with his whole family because he disobeyed God. What a price! Was it worth it?
In reading the Psalm above that David wrote, David knew that God knew ALL about him. God understood his thoughts, heard every word he ever spoke and was acquainted with his walk of life and saw every move David made.
David concluded that there was no place to hide from God no matter where he went, for God was there. Even if we make our bed in hell, God is there with us (Psalms 139:8). But David (like we should think) was convinced that God had a loving interest in him, so he said in affect (paraphrased)….’Lord, if You see anything in my life that is not pleasing to You, please reveal it to me and lead me in the way to Heaven.’
We should recognize the same and have the same desire. Thank God that when we have spiritual needs and desire the God’s Holy Spirit to dwell in us (just ask) He is faithful to bring things to our attention because He loves us and is not willing that anyone be lost or be killed by our poor decisions in our own walk of life.
