You Can Run But You Can’t Hide

“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there, your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.”

(Psalm 139:7-10 ESV)

“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”

(2 Peter 3:9 ESV)

Have you ever tried to hide something? Not gifts or anything like that. I mean some secret you don’t want anyone to know. I think we all have one time or another. But you can’t hide anything from God. He knows all. He sees all. It’s kind of a bummer, right? I mean, say I did something and didn’t want anyone to know. I can probably hide it from you, but not from God. 

God knows what you will be doing in 20 years. He might be hoping you will make better choices, but He knows. There is nothing you can say or do that God doesn’t already know about you. Yes, you. You who are trying to hide something. God knows. So go ahead. Try to hide it from God. You can’t do it. There have been a few times I just wanted to strangle someone and then tell God they just died. But God knows!!! I suggest you don’t go out and strangle anyone, by the way. But I do suggest you get right with God today. Then you won’t have to hide anything.

Have a great day, everyone. And keep smiling. Make people wonder what you’re up to.
