Think you can run from God?

Ps 139
:1 O Lord, Thou hast searched me, and know me.
:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.
:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

Sitting, standing, laying down, doesn't matter the position we are in, He knows what we are doing, thinking, saying.

:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo O Lord, Thou knowest it altogether.
:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand upon me.
:6 Such knowledge is to wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
:7 Whither shall I go from Thy Spirit? or whither shall I flee from Thy presence?

There is no place to run to that He will not find you.

:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost arts of the sea;
:10 Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

He will not let you hide from Him.

:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from Thee; but the night shineth as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to Thee.

God has night vision. He can see through anything.

:13 For Thou hast possessed my reins; Thou has covered me in my mother's womb.
:14 I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

If we want to be honest, we know the right thing to do, but we chose to do the wrong thing sometimes. That doesn't mean He isn't watching.

Even if you don't believe in God, doesn't mean He isn't real. I would rather live like He is and be wrong then face Him if I am wrong. It is a fearful thing to think we could lead innocent people into hell. People follow us whether we realize it or not. And if I am right, and there is a God, He will not look kindly on anyone leading others astray.

:15 My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
:16 Thine eyes did se my substance, yet being unperfect; and in Thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
:17 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
:18 If I should count them, they are more in number then the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.
:19 Surely Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
:20 For they speak against Thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy name in vain.

Wow powerful words aren't they? So in answer to my question at the beginning, I don't believe that you can run from God. He will still be there when you stop to rest and along side you while you are running. Just because you don't acknowledge His existence doesn't make Him go away. Just something to think about today.
