"The man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden."
Whenever I am “hiding from God,” avoiding reading the Bible regularly or wanting to skip worship, I refresh my knowledge of who He is by reading Psalm 139. This chapter of the Bible speaks powerfully of the nature of God and His perfect, comprehensive knowledge of man.
David assures us that there is nowhere we can hide from God. Even more than that, we shouldn’t want to hide from Him. David also comforts us with this thought: “When I awake, I am still with you” (v. 18). There is no condemnation – not even for those whom the civil law has convicted – for those who are in Christ Jesus. Hide in Him, not from Him.
AS CHRISTIANS JUSTIFIED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH, WE NEED NOT RUN FROM GOD WHEN WE SIN. RATHER, TAKE REFUGE IN THE SHADOW OF HIS WINGS.
