You Can Talk to God About Anything
By Rick Warren
“If I flew away beyond the east or lived in the farthest place in the west, you would be there to lead me, you would be there to help me.” Psalm 139:9 (GNT)
You are never, ever alone because God is in every dimension at the same time.
God is in the past, he's in the present, he's in the future. He's in heaven, and he's on Earth. He's in the spirit world. He's in our world. He's in you, he's above you, he's around you—because he is multidimensional.
There are not a bunch of gods to cover every dimension. There is one God in the person of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Because he is multidimensional, you are never alone.
"Where could I go to escape from you? Where could I get away from your presence? If I went up to heaven, you would be there; if I lay down in the world of the dead, you would be there. If I flew away beyond the east or lived in the farthest place in the west, you would be there to lead me, you would be there to help me. I could ask the darkness to hide me . . . but even darkness is not dark for you, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are the same to you" (Psalm 139:7-12 GNT).
Don’t try to play hide and seek with God. Every place you try to hide, he's already there. This is God’s omnipresence. He's everywhere! He's in all things. He is the beginning and the end. There is no place you've been, no place you are, and no place you're going to be that God was not, is not, or will not be. That should encourage you. No matter where you choose to go, God will walk with you, and he will already be there to meet you.
Because God is in every dimension of the world—and even the dimensions we don't know about—you can talk to him about every dimension of your life. He already understands! There is nothing you could bring to him from your past, present, or future that he is not already in complete control of.
Your prayers will never catch God off guard. You can bring them all to him!
