“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?”Psalm 139:7
David also acknowledges in verses 14-17 that his Creator knew him when he was being formed in his Mother’s womb. God saw his future even before he came into being. Though too wondrous to fully comprehend, this was precious to David.
We take great comfort in these assurances: The existence of God and His availability to His created beings. His presence surrounds us. In the valley of the shadow of death, He is the only One who can be with us. We are never truly alone and can choose to live in the awareness of His constant care on life’s journey.
“O Thou, in whose presence my soul takes delight./ On whom in affliction I call;/ My comfort by day and my song in the night,/My hope, my salvation, my all.” (Joseph Swain, 1791)
