“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” (Psalms 139: 7)
Take a moment and listen for the answer to these questions. Come to recognize that there will never be an occasion or circumstance where God isn’t present, with us right where we are. Because He is ever-present, we can never be too far away from Him, and there are no exceptions to this fact. We simply can’t hide from His eyes when He is all-seeing Mind. We can’t escape the infinite All-in-all.
And we should never want to. God is never going to banish us from Himself because of human ignorance or disobedience. We may turn our eyes from His grace by our belief that we have power apart from Him, but we will never leave His Mind; we are His very thoughts and His Mind would be incomplete without every idea His great wisdom conceived. He knows right where we are and just who we really are. This is our comfort, not our shame. He knows our goodness, our sweetness, our lovableness, and He wants us near Him.
Human love may leave us and we may leave it or lose it, but the divine Presence is always with you and in you. It constitutes your very life and being, so you are inseparable from it. This divine Love will always be with you, by your side and on your side. It is divine Life, so it is an active, living Presence, and it is divine Love, unconditional Love, so it will never exclude you or forget you.
Know and feel this Spirit, this divine nature, embracing and infusing your life. There is nowhere to hide and no reason to. You are right where you need to be and you are never alone.
